A week after launching its 14-inch large Chromebook 3 in late May, Lenovo is quietly launching a new 11.6-inch Chromebook 3 netbook with a smaller, more affordable 11.6-inch Chromebook. As the successor to the Chromebook S340, the 14-inch Chromebook 3 meets the needs of mainstream netbook users. But the 11.6-inch Chromebook 3 is more in line with budget-level consumers’ expectations for the price of the Chromebook.
It is reported that the small Chromebook 3 netbook features a 11.6-inch, 1366-by-768-resolution/brightness 250-nit display. The hinges support a 180-degree leveling, and the top cover has a different two-tone design than before.
The intel Celeron N4020 with a built-in processor of 1.1 GHz, supplemented by a 4GB RAM plus 64GB eMMC ROM storage combination, supports Bluetooth 4.2 plus 802.11 ac Wi-Fi connectivity.
On the port side, it offers two USB-Cs, two USB 3.1 Gen1, a microSD reader, an anti-theft keyhole, and a composite audio I/O.
For multimedia, the machine is embedded with a 720p webcam with a pair of 2W speakers and a built-in 42Wh battery for 10 hours of battery life.
As a lightweight netbook that costs just $230 (about 1635 RMB), the 11.6-inch Lenovo Chromebook 3 is a great choice if you only need to do simple web browsing, chat sessions, document entry, and more.
