Lenovo is bringing out new devices rapidly this year, and recently the company announced a refreshed version of the C340 Chromebook. The new laptop is named simply the Chromebook 3.
However, if users are keen on buying this notebook right now, they might be in a bit of bad luck, since the Lenovo websites marked this as “no longer available”. However, the good news would be that a new variant of the same model might hit the market soon.
Aside from introducing Chromebook 3 and its soon-to-come variant, Lenovo has introduced again a new laptop in the FLEX series, the new Chromebook Flex 3i.
The Chromebook Flex 3i features 11.6-inches of the display screen, and it is a 2-in-1 convertible with a touchscreen. The point of similarity between the Chromebook 3 and the Flex 3i is that both the laptops are powered by Gemini Lake-R n4020 processor from Intel.
Both the models come in two storage variants – 4GB of RAM with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The Chromebooks are available in what Lenovo is calling the color “Almond” which is similar to champagne color.
Furthermore, the Chromebook comes with preinstalled Android Studio. This appears to be odd to a lot of tech enthusiasts since it requires the enabling of Linux apps.
The Android Studio may face some problems while running since the Chromebook lacks most of the specs recommended by Google for running resource-heavy applications, such as this one. All issues aside, this Chromebook too could be a value for money product. This could never downplay the Chromebook’s overall performance.
The Chromebook is available in the US and Canada right now, and the officials are yet to comment on its global release. The Chromebook Flex 3i is priced at $329.99. Another laptop in the same series, Core i3 Flex 5 is available at $80 more.
