Lenovo’s Chromebook N22 is on sale for $180 on Amazon


Chromebooks are an interesting breed of laptops and cloud computing. The things run Google’s ChromeOS, an operating system that’s basically the Google Chrome browser. They have limited amounts of storage, but monstrous battery life. The productivity apps available aren’t numerous, but prices are affordable.

Whatever your opinion on Chromebooks are, they’re still some pretty good media consumption devices. And if you were planning to get one, now may be the time to get one. The Lenovo Chromebook N22 is currently on Amazon for $180 instead of the usual $300.

Gizchina News of the week


The N22 has a more rugged and durable build than most Chromebooks on the market. It features a water-resistant keyboard, sealed touchpad, anti-peel keys, and reinforced hinges and ports. As for specs, the thing’s got an 11.6-inch TN touchscreen with a resolution of 1366 x 768.

There’s a rotating 1MP camera at the top of the display, which isn’t great but records at 720p. The CPU is the Intel Braswell N3160 @ 1.6GHz, along with 4GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. There’s a HDMI out, as well as two USB 3.0 ports for charging and data. If you need it, there’s also a 2-in-1 SD card reader.

In terms of size and weight, th devices dimensions are  300.4 x 212 x 21.8mm. It weighs in at a pretty heavy 1.2KGs, which is surprising considering the size. Battery life is advertised us up to 10 hours with average use, and reviews seem to support this.

Of course, there’s the normal bunch of issues when you buy a Chromebook. There aren’t many applications for the thing to run, and they aren’t very good productivity machines. If you’re a student who only needs a laptop for writing and media however, they’re a pretty good choice. You can check the N22 right here.

    most people will want 2 in 1, that weigh less then 1Kg, strong keyboard as a dock, like in chuwi 10, and not the surface design

    m3 cpu (4Mb Cache) with 4GB of RAM as minimum, 6GB or 8GB is better, with 12.2 or 13.3 screen

    get me one of this for less then 300$ and you have a deal

    if Intel will not kill their Celeron and Z8300 to Z8700 series, Qualcomm will do it for them together with Microsoft and full working windows10 for ARM cpu

    I picked up an Acer R11 yesterday, and I am very impressed. It runs the Play Store, and is a 2-in-1. The speed is pretty impressive, considering it is only a Celeron processor, and the battery life has been great. I picked it up for doing emails on the road, and used it while out today. I didn’t have any issues, and it feels like it is running at least an M3 CPU. The lightweight OS makes for a great little device.

    I picked up a GPD-Win and Cube i7 Stylus to try and do the same things with. The Cube isn’t lap-able, since the tablet just sits on the keyboard with some magnets. The GPD-Win has a horrible keyboard for doing emails. Since the Cube i7 and iPega 9023 work well together, and it games better than the GPD-Win, the GPD-Win is the one I put up for sale.

    A 720p screen with a dual-core Atom processor, mrsp of 300$?

    Sounds like bs to me, the specs look worse than the 150$ N21.
