If you can live with its low-res screen, Lenovo's semi-rugged, fully flexible Chromebook convertible is a winning choice for classrooms and consumers alike.

The Lenovo 500e Chromebook is a durable touch-screen laptop with great battery life, but its design is bland and it's uncomfortable to use.

80% Lenovo 500e Chromebook 2nd Gen Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Lenovo 500e Chromebook 2nd Gen is a budget-friendly Chromebook that’s ideal for children thanks to its rugged and sturdy build. Performance is decent for a laptop at this price, but university students and office workers will likely crave fasters speeds and a more attractive design. The Lenovo 500e Chromebook 2nd Gen isn’t a glamorous laptop, but it’s still impressive at this price. Its rugged design is well suited to clumsy children, while the 2-in-1 design and inclusion of a stylus make it a great option for those who like to doodle and sketch on the touchscreen. Those looking for a speedy office laptop will want to look elsewhere, though, since the performance and keyboard are passable at best. But if you just want a laptop for the absolute basics, then this is a great option at a budget-friendly price.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
