Lenovo has presented the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook, powered by Intel 12th Gen Core processors. Available later this month from US$599, the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook has a 16-inch, 2.5K and 120 Hz display, along with a four-stage RGB backlit keyboard and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.

Lenovo has revealed the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook, a laptop that blends two product lines. As its name suggests, the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook runs ChromeOS but features some components to make it worthy of its 'Gaming' name. For reference, Lenovo markets the machine as a Cloud Gaming device for services like Amazon Luna, NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta).

Arriving a few weeks after the device leaked as the IdeaPad 5 Gaming Chromebook, the device features a 16-inch IPS panel with a 2,560 x 1,600-pixel (WQXGA) native resolution. Additionally, the display has a 120 Hz refresh rate with 100% sRGB colour space coverage, TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification and 350 nits of peak brightness. Incidentally, Lenovo complements the high-resolution display with quad 2W speakers and a 1080p webcam.

At the heart of the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook is a 71 Wh battery, which powers either the Core i3-1215U or the Core i5-1235U and 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM. Moreover, Lenovo has confirmed that the machine will be available with 128 GB of eMMC flash storage or an M.2 2242 PCIe drive with 256 GB and 512 GB storage variants. Seemingly, all variants measure 356.5 x 253 x 19.95 mm, start at 1.82 kg and feature the following ports:

  • 1x 3.5 mm combo audio jack
  • 1x MicroSD card slot
  • 2x USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 2x USB 3.2 Type-C (DisplayPort/Power Delivery)

Furthermore, the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook supports Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity. So far, Lenovo has only confirmed that the machine will be available later this month from US$599, with no firm release date or pricing for other markets.
