If you’re looking for a sturdy and cheap school Chromebook, look no further than the newly unveiled line from Lenovo.
While all eyes were on the Yoga 730 and the Yoga 530 at MWC 2018, the budget-friendly Lenovo 100e deserves some attention for its $219 price.
There are other strong options too, but let’s start with the 100e.
This unassuming laptop is ideal for rough environments or kid usage, offering a spill-resistant keyboard and reinforced ports and hinges. It can even withstand a drop of two and a half feet!
Under the tough hood there’s not a lot of impressive specs but, for its price and destination, they look ok:
- 11.6 inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution
- Intel Celeron processor
- 32 GB storage
- 4 GB RAM
Lenovo also unveiled two other sturdy Chromebooks, the $279 300e and the $349 500e. These are part of the convertible line, switching between laptop and tablet mode.
The 300E features an Enhanced Touch that allows you to write with a stylus or even a regular pencil, while the 500e has its own dedicated stylus with Google’s technology.
On the specs front, the 300E has an 11.6 inch HD display, HDMI port, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB storage and Chromebook integrated chipset and graphics.
The 500e keeps the same display but upgrades to an Intel Celeron processor and Intel graphics card. It also increases the RAM to 8 GB and the storage to 64 GB. Check it out below!
