Lenovo releases an 11-inch Chromebook 3 for only $229
There are plenty of companies pumping out Chromebooks, but Lenovo has some of the more popular options. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet, for example, has been very highly regarded in reviews. The company recently updated its 14-inch Chromebook 3 and now it’s releasing an 11-inch model as well. The smaller model includes a few improvements.
The 11-inch Lenovo Chromebook 3 actually has a few upgrades over the 14-inch model. The 11.6-inch laptop has a slightly better display rated at a maximum brightness of 250 nits, though it is only 1366×768 in resolution. The 11-inch model also has more storage with 64GB onboard. 32GB is pretty standard for Chrome OS devices in this price range, so it’s nice to see double the storage. The laptop has 4GB of RAM as well.
In terms of ports, the Lenovo Chromebook 3 11-inch model has 2 USB-C ports (3.1) and 2 USB-A ports (3.1). There is also a 3.5mm headphone/microphone jack and a microSD card slot. The processor is an Intel Gemini Lake-R N4020 Celeron. The laptop supports Android apps, of course, but also Linux apps via “Crostini”.
As mentioned, this is a very affordable Chrome OS device. That means it doesn’t have any of the fancy 2-in-1 or hybrid features that are becoming common with Chromebooks. The display can be folded flat, ie. 180-degrees with the keyboard, but it’s not a touchscreen. The entire package weighs only 2.47 lbs. The Lenovo Chromebook 3 11-inch costs only $229 and it’s actually available right now, which can’t be said for many laptops. If you’re looking for a small, simple Chrome OS device for basic web browsing and computing, this is a pretty nice deal.
