Chromebooks are getting pretty interesting in 2017. At CES 2017 we saw a few new Chromebooks launch with higher price tags than we are used too. But that doesn't mean that the older Chromebooks like the Lenovo ThinkPad 13 isn't still a great buy. And right now, it's priced at just $179. The Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Chromebook sports an Intel Celeron 3855U processor with 4GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage. Making for a pretty speedy Chromebook from Lenovo. There are also two USB-C ports available for charging, and you will need to embrace the dongle life with this one. But not as much as you would with an Apple MacBook. There are also two USB Type-A ports and a full sized SD card reader available.
The Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Chromebook is typically priced at around $249, so it's not a terribly expensive Chromebook to begin with, but right now you can pick it up for just $179, taking $70 off of the regular price here. That makes the Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Chromebook a great Chromebook to pick up. It is also one of the more rugged Chromebooks available right now, and has been tested to military specifications and passed those tests. So if you need a speedy, and rugged Chromebook, then look no further than the Lenovo ThinkPad 13.
