Lenovo is a renowned name in the conventional notebook market with its varied range of entry-level, mid-range and high-end products. So it seems rather interesting to see the company venture into the consumer-end Chromebook market, where the likes of Samsung, HP and Acer have already tried their bit.

The company has unveiled two Chromebook models; N20 and N20p that only differ with regards to one offering touch support and flexible display. Both the models are in tune with the other Chromebooks in the market and focused around users with all-time connectivity. These sport a 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 pixels display, packed with Intel Celeron but Haswell processors, 4 GB RAM and offers storage up to 16 GB, rest lies in your Google Drive account.

Other options included on the N20 and N20p are two USB ports, HDMI port, SDcard slot, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi. Both the models apparently have an “oversized” trackpad and offer fully functional keyboard. As we highlighted before, the only difference between N20 and N20p is that the latter is offers touchscreen display and a swiveling hinge mode much like the Lenovo Flex Series. The N20p is also on the heavier side at 1.4 KGs 3.1lbs whereas the N20 weighs at 1.2 Kgs. 

Chromebook, as you might be aware is the laptop that runs on Google’s Chrome operating platform which is primarily centred around web applications like Chrome, Gmail, Google Play and many other Google applications. You can find out more about the platform in our piece around whether Chromebooks are worth the try?

Both these Chromebooks have different availability time frame, where the N20 priced at $279 hits shelves from July while the N20p makes it to stores in August for $329, pricier for its touch and hinge features.
