Lenovo unveils four Chromebooks: Designed for the Educational Market

Inexpensive and useful Chromebooks have always been good for students, and Lenovo recently launched four Chromebooks aimed at the education market. They have different differences in hardware such as size, processor, and screen.

There are two entry-level Chromebooks, the Lenovo 100e Chromebook Gen 4 and the 300e Yoga Chromebook Gen 4. They are all 11.6-inch screens with a resolution of 1366×768, but the 100e Chromebook Gen 4 is only configured with a TN screen. The 300e Yoga Chromebook Gen 4 has a 360-degree tiltable IPS touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass. Both are powered by a MediaTek Kompanio 520 processor paired with 4GB/8GB of LPDDR4x memory and 32GB/64GB of eMMC flash storage.

The configuration of the remaining two Chromebooks is slightly higher, both of which are Intel’s Alder Lake-N processors, that is, all E-core series. The processor of Lenovo 500e Yoga Chromebook Gen 4 can be up to 6W N200, 4 cores, and 4 threads, and the turbo frequency is 3.70GHz. The Lenovo 14e Chromebook Gen 3 can be configured with a maximum 15W i3-N305 processor, 8 cores and 8 threads, and a turbo frequency of 3.80GHz.

They have a memory of up to 8GB LPDDR5 and up to 128GB of eMMC flash storage. The screen is also much better than the two entry-level notebooks, both of which have reached the level of full HD. The 500e Yoga Chromebook Gen 4 has a 12.2-inch screen at 1920×1200, and the 14e Chromebook Gen 3 has a 14-inch screen at 1920×1080.

Although these four Chromebooks are all targeted at the education market in specific regions, they are generally purchased centrally by schools, but they can always be found at some retailers. To be honest, it’s also pretty good to buy a used Chromebook from the second-hand market to try it out.
