Lenovo reportedly working on several Chromebooks

Coming in May, or maybe not

Lenovo is said to be working on some Chromebooks of its own and the outfit could introduce them as early as mid-May.

The rumours come courtesy of TheStreet nad point to multiple devices based on ARM and x86 chips. However, much of the report is clearly in the realm of speculation and it should be taken with a grain of salt.

Prices could start as low as $299, but higher end versions could sell for up to $499. A whole range of form factors is rumoured as well, from 11.6 and 12.5 inches, to more substantial 13- and 14-inch models.

The move would put Lenovo toe to toe with Acer and Samsung, however, we are skeptical. Neither Acer nor Samsung are offering such a wide range of Chromebooks and we doubt Lenovo would be willing to allocate resources to the development of multiple products in different form factors and platforms.
