LAS VEGAS: NOT CONTENT with unveiling a Thinkpad tablet, a laptop and two 4K monitors, Lenovo also refreshed its Miix 2 and Yoga 2 devices at CES on Sunday.

Lenovo's Miix 2 is a hybrid laptop, of which an 8in version already exists. At CES, Lenovo announced that the device will be available in 10in and 11in versions from March, and will sport updated designs.

The Lenovo Miix 2 comes loaded with Microsoft's Windows 8.1 operating system, and the screen has been bumped to 1920x1200 resolution. Clearly looking to lure business users away from traditional desktop devices, the 10in Miix 2 hybrid device will arrive powered by an Intel Bay Trail Atom chip, while the larger 11in model will have an Intel Haswell processor.

Other specifications include dual cameras, an SD card reader, a miniHDMI port and microSD memory expansion. The 10in model will be available for $499 and the 11in model $699.

Lenovo also updated the Yoga 2 at CES. The smaller 11in model comes packing Intel's latest quad-core Pentium processor, a full blown version of Windows 8, up to 4GB of RAM, up to 500GB of storage and an 11.6in 1366x768 IPS touch panel.

The 13in Lenovo Yoga 2 now arrives packing an Intel Haswell chip, maximum storage capacity of 500GB, a bumped-up screen resolution of 1920x1080 and, for those who care, a backlit keyboard.

Lenovo's Flex laptop line also got a small update at this year's CES, with the firm opting to configure the Flex 14D and 15D devices with AMD Kapani APUs.

We'll be catching up with Lenovo at CES this week, so check back for all the latest from the company. µ
