Lenovo has announced four of its latest laptop-tablet hybrids that will be on show at CES 2014. The Miix 2, Yoga 2, Flex 14D and 15D will all bring convertible laptops further into the mainstream for Lenovo.
The Miix 2 introduces a 3-in-1 detachable design and comes in 10-inch and 11-inch models. Both have detachable tablets that connect to the keyboard for the full Windows 8.1 laptop experience with a third Stand Mode using the 180-degree hinge.
The 10-inch Miix 2 focuses on portability with a 64-bit Intel Atom processor, 1920 x 1200 resolution touchscreen, 128GB eMMC storage, a 720p, 2-megapixel front camera and 5-megapixel rear snapper. Wi-Fi and 3G options are available and there's microSD for 32GB more storage. Lenovo says it will deliver a full day's use on a single charge.
