Reviews for the Lenovo N20p-59426642 Chromebook

74% Lenovo N20p-59426642 Dual-Mode Chromebook Review | Notebookcheck
Dual-mode Chromebook… As convertible notebooks continue to pique consumers’ interest, Chromebooks have yet to capitalize on the concept. Lenovo’s N20p flaunts its ability to transform, Yoga- or Flex-style, in pursuit of a piece of the convertible pie. Can it succeed?

With that in mind, there are reasons to warm to the Lenovo. The design is attractive, the flexible hinge and responsive touchscreen are a great pairing, and the array of features and connectivity is excellent. Sadly, though, the middling keyboard and iffy display mean that we’d have to think long and hard about choosing it over the HP Chromebook 11; with a few tweaks, though, it could have been a real contender.

Put simply, there isn’t a whole lot of justification to shelling out more money for the Lenovo N20p over other Chromebooks beyond the somewhat unique Stand Mode and touchscreen. So if money is tight and a touchscreen display that can rotate 300 degrees isn’t particularly important to you when it comes to picking a Chromebook, you’re better off going with one of the cheaper models from the competition.

Chromebooks are gaining in popularity, particularly among users who want an inexpensive device simply for browsing the web or handling basic computing tasks. The education sector is a prime target for many Chromebook manufacturers for good reason—this is a segment where Chromebooks are gaining traction quickly.

Overall, though, it's hard to recommend this laptop because of its lamentable keyboard. As the primary input method, it's just not good enough. We'd strongly recommend popping into a shop and trying the keyboard for yourself to ensure that these problems won't affect you. If the keyboard suits you, then this is a good choice. Otherwise, consider the Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 or the Acer C720. If you want a proper Windows laptop instead, the Asus Transformer Book T200TA is a great convertible model with a touchscreen, for the same price.

The price and specifications of the N20p position it as a top-tier Chromebook, but it unfortunately fails to stand out from the crowd. Its touchscreen and folding hinge are unique, but pointless given that Chrome OS is not designed with touch in mind. Performance is where this notebook really stumbles.

Currently the best low-end Chromebook is a kind of Frankenbook combining one element each from half a dozen models. Since that’s not really possible, where does the Lenovo fit? If a touchscreen is important to you, then the n20p will fill that slot, though you might also want to check out the Acer c720p, which has a comparable screen, double the RAM, and a different processor.

60% Lenovo n20p review: a convertible touchscreen Chromebook that's let down by its keyboard
Source: PC Advisor English
The Lenovo N20p is a bit of a disappointment. Visually it’s a very attractive, compact, and smart machine. The touchscreen is useful, and the specs make for a decent experience. This is all ruined by the poor keyboard which proved a constant frustration. Fix that, and this would be a great device.

The N20p delivers on its mission to provide speedy everyday computing at an affordable price. However, its touch screen seems like an unnecessary expense for an operating system that is even less adept at finger-based navigation than is Windows. For $30 less, the Dell Chromebook 11 offers better performance and battery life, while the Acer Chromebook 13 gets you a larger, 1080p display.

The Lenovo N20p Chromebook has two big things going for it: touch capability and the 300-degree multimode hinge. Aside from those defining features, it's really just one of the crowd, sitting alongside many other offerings that have similar performance, similar battery life, and the exact same operating system. Its price is a little high for a Chromebook, and most alternatives will get you roughly the same performance for less than $300. The Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 remains our top pick for Chromebooks, due to its touch screen, longer battery life, and lower price.

Source: CNet English
Chromebooks have become common enough that shoppers can now expect either a rock-bottom price or one or more special features. The Yoga 11e has a hybrid hinge that transforms into a tablet, the Acer Chromebook 13 does mainstream-quality graphics, and the Acer C720p (a long-time favorite) packs a touchscreen into a very inexpensive system.

Lenovo N20P Chromebook Review
Source: Slashgear English
The Lenovo N20P Chromebook is the latest expansion to the growing number of small Chrome OS laptops, and it is a welcomed addition. Though plastic from one side to the other, it feels solid under use, has a pleasantly thin body, and the design is appealing. The addition of an HDMI port helps set it aside from other competing products, and will expand its usefulness for certain types of users, such as those who frequently given presentations.

Lenovo N20p Chromebook Review: Touch on a Nice 11-inch Design
Source: English
Compared to the Acer C720p, the current leader of the touchscreen Chromebook market, Lenovo’s model stands out because of the dual-mode design. Other than that, the Lenovo N20p suffers from the same issues as other low-priced Chromebooks, like a washed out screen and cheap plastic design. People who don’t run too many apps or tabs at one time will like the performance, but hard-core ChromeOS users may want to look at a machine with an Intel Celeron 2955U or Core i3 processor and 4GB of RAM or more.

Lenovo's N20p offers a unique aspect to the Chromebook market with its folding screen but it should have been taken a bit further. Overall, it is a solid and well designed Chromebook but with some things that hold it back. This includes the screen that provides a stand mode great for watching media but it would have been nice to fold fully into a tablet mode like the Yoga series.

Let's be clear: The operating system that put hardware vendors in a headlock and forced them to develop touch screens wasn't Chrome OS, it was Windows 8. Lenovo's $329 Chromebook joins the Acer C720P in offering a touch screen and tops it in offering a Yoga-style easel or stand mode. Intel's "Bay Trail" Celeron gives it great battery life at the expense of benchmark-busting performance.

Lenovo N20p Chromebook review: An affordable dual-mode device
Source: English
Lenovo's N20p Chromebook offers a compelling experience that goes beyond what the typical Chromebook provides. The tilting display really is a nice touch that expands the device's potential and opens it up to new and interesting types of uses. The system is held back, however, by lower than average performance -- something we'll probably be seeing more of as Intel's Bay Trail chips make their way into more Chrome OS devices. That's a factor you'll have to closely consider in determining whether the N20p Chromebook is right for you.

The Lenovo N20p Chromebook is a reasonable value for the price, but the performance is not as good as that of similarly equipped models currently available. The author's Acer C720 Chromebook does not exhibit the laggy performance experienced at times with the Lenovo.

The Lenovo N20p belongs to the many new Chromebooks that are using the new BayTrail processors. The Lenovo N20p is a convertible hybrid. It has two modes: laptop mode and stand mode.

Its 11.6-inch touchscreen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and supports of 10-point multi touch. It is just a standard display. So, movies won't look that great, but it is sufficient for web browsing and work-related activities.

The N20p is powered by a 2.16 GHz Intel Celeron BayTrail chip with Intel HD Graphics. The newer Celerons are a little slower compared to the older ones found in earlier Chromebooks, but power efficiency and thus increasing battery life are better. Web browsing is very solid with the N20p. Thanks to 2 GB, you can have quite a few tabs. The 16 GB SSD also means that it boots very quickly.

The Chromebook weighs at about 3.1 pounds (1.4 kg), which makes it easy to carry around. The battery is claimed to be able to last up to 8 hours, which is realistic given the lifespan of most Chromebooks around out there.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.
