by on31 August 2018

Starting at $600

Suggesting that Chromebooks aren't just entry-level devices, Lenovo has unveiled a Yoga Chromebook available in October and packs a serious punch with some serious hardware. It also has two entry-level Chromebooks for those looking for a second portable device.

Following the design of its Yoga line, the Yoga Chromebook from Lenovo is a 2-in-1 notebook with a 360-degree hinge, allowing to be used in a standard notebook as well as a tablet mode, or anything in between.

The Lenovo Yoga Chromebook has a 15.6-inch screen, with a choice between an FHD 1920x1080 or a 4K/UHD 3840x2160, both based on an IPS panel.

The hardware includes Intel's 8th generation Core CPU, up to 8GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, 56Whr battery, backlit keyboard, stereo speakers, two USB Type-C ports, one USB Type-A port, and a microSD card slot, or simply, a whole lot for a $600+ priced Chromebook.

Mediatek SoC-based Chromebooks coming too

In addition to the Yoga Chromebook, Lenovo also unveiled two entry-level Chromebooks, the $280 priced C330 and the $250 priced S330. Both are powered by MediaTek's SoC, have 4GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. They also come with all the needed connectivity ports and radios, and the only difference is in the screen, as the C330 has an 11.6-inch 1366×768 touchscreen and a 360-degree hinge, while the S330 comes with a 14-inch (1366×768 or 1920×1080) non-touch screen on a standard hinge.

Lenovo is obviously quite serious about the Chromebook lineup and all three should be available in October.
