Lenovo hasn’t made a splash in terms of Chromebooks in the past couple of years when brands like HP and Toshiba has been focusing a lot around Chromebooks. Now with its popularity increasing among the users, Lenovo has also jumped on the bandwagon and announced its latest Chromebook.
The Chromebook 100S is a low-end model, which starts at $179, weighing around 2.6 pounds with a screen size of 11.6-inch HD (1366 x 768) resolution display. It is powered by an Intel N2840 processor, which is Intel’s Baytrail- M-series processor. There would be options for up to 4GB RAM support as well as up to 32GB internal storage for media consumptions.
The market has been filled with chintzy Chromebooks offering poor specifications and performance, but Lenovo wants to change that with its latest Chromebook offering. Made for simplicity of use with the lightweight and clean design, the 100S promises to give more than its competitors.
The company claims that battery on 100S would last up to 8 hours, and looking at Baytrail’s efficiency, it may give this numbers in real life usage. Sporting 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 port, as well as Audio Combo Jack, and 4-in-1 Combo card, this new Chromebook from Chinese tech giant is a budget, performer.
In terms of connectivity, the tiny laptop packs Wi-Fi 802.11 a/c and Bluetooth 4.0 technology support. There is a 1MP HD (720p) front camera and Dual Digital microphone if you want to attend that on-the-go Skype call.
Though, Chromebook hasn’t got much design flair, but it can still be a good competitor among the current peers. Lenovo is said to begin the sale of its new Chromebook in October for a starting price of $179, although, expect higher pricing for the models with highest memory and storage option.
