Chromebooks are becoming increasingly popular in select markets, they’re still not available worldwide unfortunately. These Chrome OS-powered laptops can be really useful tools, and even though they still can’t replace the full-fledged laptops, they’re more than enough for the majority of users. As long as you don’t need to run any specific programs that are available for Windows and MAC, and you’re not in the business of video processing, programming and don’t do a lot of gaming, Chromebooks can be more than enough for your needs. Consider them as cloud-orientated internet Laptops, Chrome OS is based around Google’s Chrome browser, so keep that in mind. You can’t install programs on Chrome OS, only apps / extensions available in the Google’s Chrome Web Store.

Various manufacturers have already released a number of Chromebook models out on the market, and they’re selling relatively well in general. It seems like Lenovo is planning to release a new model in their N-series of Chromebooks. According to the source, the company is going to release the N21 soon, which will be a direct replacement to the N20. This laptop will be powered by Intel’s 2840 Bay Trail processor, unlike the 2830 model which is a part of the N20. This new Chromebook will come in 2 and 4GB variants, as most Chromebook laptops do. Both of these models will be drop-resistant from up to 2.3 feet, will sport a non-slip texture in order to help you grip the device better, while you’ll be able to rotate the camera as well in order to give you some flexibility when shooting a video or an image. The handles will also be retractable, so it will be easy to carry around.

This device, as most Chromebooks, will be aimed at students / education. According to the source, Lenovo will offer this device at a really affordable price point, the basic 2GB model is expected to cost $219, which is more affordable than its predecessor. The device is expected to launch at the end of March, so stay tuned for that, we’ll make sure to let you know if we get any additional information regarding this device.
