Following the tradition from previous years, Lenovo used CES to introduce a whole team of new tablet / laptop hybrids. Among them are two Miix 2 devices, Flex 14D and Flex 15D. The Miix 2 laptops will come in two size options, with 10.1 and 11.6-inch screens. The smaller model will go on sale in March for $499. The bigger Miix 2 will be available in April and will cost $699. As for the Flex hybrids, both already can be found in stores for a starting price of $499.
Lenovo Miix 2 vs. Lenovo Flex
It is really hard to define the Lenovo Miix 2 devices since they can function perfectly well as tablets and yet they come with hardware keyboard. The screen is attached to the keyboard with the help of magnetic connectors which allow you to easily detach and reattach the screen. Depending which way the screen is facing, you either get a laptop or a tablet with a stand.
The 10.1-inch Miix 2 is powered by a Intel Bay Trail processor with 128 GB of storage. The 11.6-inch model comes with Core i5 chip and 256 GB of storage. Other that that, the Miix 2 10 and 11 are the same. Both offer 1920 x 1080 resolution, 5-megapixel main cameras, 2-megapixel front-facing cameras, optional 3G, a microSD slot, micro-HDMI, JBL speakers, a full-sized USB port on the dock and Windows 8.1.
The Lenovo Flex 14D and 15D are refreshed versions of the Flex 14 and 15 with most specs and features unchanged. What makes the new models different from the existing versions is the use of quad-core AMD A6 chips and a 1 GB AMD Radeon HD8570 GPU. Both, the 14D and 15D feature laptop and stand modes.
