IFA 2019: Lenovo rolls out new C340 Chromebook in an 11-inch and 15-inch variants
Lenovo has launched two new Chromebooks as part of its pre-IFA 2019 Berlin announcements. The new Lenovo Chromebook S340 comes in two sizes targeted at quite different audiences. The first is an 11-inch model ideal for students that has a footprint smaller than an A4 sheet of paper. The second is a 15-inch model targeted a mobile professionals and includes numeric keypad to help get things done.
The 11-inch S340 display is an IPS LCD type with a 720p resolution and features a 360-degree flexible hinge that makes it a great little machine for getting school work done, but also great for watching videos in tent mode or playing Android games in tablet mode. It is powered by an Intel Celeron N400 and can be fitted with RAM up to 8 GB with on board storage up 64 GB via eMMC. Battery life is rated at up to 10 hours.
The 15-inch S340 display is also an IPS LCD type with a 1080p resolution and also features a similar 360-degree display hinge. As you would expect for a more professionally oriented device, it can be fitted with up to an Intel Core i3 processor with RAM up to 8 GB. Storage is more expansive at 128 GB also provided by way of eMMC. Battery is also rated up to 10 hours but weight is kept down to a relatively svelte 1.4 kg (3lbs).
Both devices are shipping in September from US$300 for the 11-inch S340 and from US$450 for the 15-inch S340.
