Lenovo has announced the release of its first two consumer Chromebooks, N20 and N20p. In the past, Lenovo has released Chromebooks ThinkPad 11e andYoga 11e but both were for the educational market. However, the new Lenovo N20 and N20p Chromebooks are being launched for the consumers.


The N20 Chromebook has a normal standard design while the N20p has a 10-point multi-touch screen and its keyboard is flexible, bending 300° backwards. This converts the N20p Chromebook into a ‘stand mode’, providing users with a different angle for viewing videos and movies. The users can also then use the touch screen for playing games etc.


Both the N20 and N20p Chromebooks are thin and light and have almost the same specifications. They are 17.9 mm thin and weigh less than 1.4 kg, making them lightweight and easily portable. Both the models feature 11.6-inch 1366×768 pixel HD display, Intel Celeron processor, 2GB RAM (with 4GB option too), 16GB internal storage, 100GB Google Drive cloud storage, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and 8 hours battery life.

The pricing for Lenovo N20 Chromebook starts at $279 and it will hit the shelves in July. The Lenovo N20p Chromebook will be available from $329 onward and will be released in August this year. Both the N20 and N20p models will be available at the Lenovo website and the company’s retailers.
