After ASUS and Samsung, Lenovo also debuted new Chromebooks for the education segment this week. Increasingly, such devices are getting more and more high end specs, rivaling the more affordable Windows 10 detachables. Lenovo’s newcomers are 4 Chromebooks, two Yoga models and two pure Chromebooks.
There’s a Lenovo ThinkPad 11 e Chromebook, that comes in May and it’s priced starting at $369, plus a ThinkPad 11e Yoga also coming in May at $449 and up. Lenovo N23 Chromebook also debuted today, with a release date of February and an affordable price of $199. Then there’s the Lenovo N23 Yoga Chromebook, arriving in May at $279 and up.
Keep in mind that Lenovo hasn’t unveiled the clear specs of the Chromebooks, but we do know that the ThinkPads of this range are MIL-Spec tested, with water resistant keyboards and the latest Intel CPUs, apparently. 10 hours of battery life are also promised. Windows versions of the ThinkPad 11e and 11e Yoga will also be sold for $519 and $599 respectively, but sooner, from February.
Expect to learn more, possibly at MWC 2017. And also, these Chromebooks should run Android apps, as we learned here.
