Call it a first world prob­lem or le­git­i­mate mod­ern co­nun­drum but we’ve all been there - you’re pack­ing for a trip to the Mal­dives and can’t de­cide be­tween your slim-line tablet or work­horse lap­top. Len­ovo have cot­toned on to this par­tic­u­lar dilemma and are propos­ing a third op­tion; hav­ing your cake and eat­ing it too.

The Flex 2 sits atop a 300-de­gree hinge that flips its gor­geous 14” full HD 1920x1080 dis­play from stan­dard clamshell mode to a con­vert­ible-like, touch­screen ‘stand’ that’s per­fect for watch­ing films from the cosy con­fines of one’s ho­tel bed. But it’s not all just about looks ei­ther, pack­ing some se­ri­ous power un­der its hood sits an In­tel Core i7 CPU and a NVIDIA GT 820 graph­ics chip - mean­ing you can fire up Ti­tan­fall and frag n00bs pool­side all day long us­ing the the free lobby wifi - we can’t vouch for trop­i­cal is­land ping rates, how­ever.

And for those that sim­ply can’t go a day with­out an­swer­ing work email, Win­dows 8.1 is bun­dled in of­fer­ing a full suite of busi­ness op­tions. Se­ri­ously though, get back on that sun lounger and order your­self a co­conut wa­ter, you de­serve it.
