IFA 2018 | Lenovo C330 and S330 Chromebooks coming for $250 USD
Look beyond the flagship Yoga C930, mainstream Yoga S730, and unconventional Yoga Book C930 and you have the new budget-tier Chromebooks from Lenovo. The manufacturer is showing off three distinct Chromebooks at IFA 2018 this week with the 11.6-inch S330 laptop, 14-inch C330 convertible, and the aforementioned 15.6-inch Yoga C630 convertible.
Both the C330 and S330 succeed the existing Yoga 330 and will share similar internal features such as the quad-core MediaTek 8173C SoC, 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 32/64 GB of eMMC 5.1 storage, and even their selection of I/O ports. Due to their differences in display size, however, the smaller C330 will be lighter (1.2 kg bs. 1.5 kg), thinner (19.6 mm vs. 20.8 mm), and with no FHD option. It's worth noting that the C330 thankfully comes standard with an IPS display to preserve the wide viewing angles necessary for tablet and portrait modes.
The C330 and S330 will launch this October for $280 USD and $250 USD, respectively. The names of the systems will follow Lenovo's new consumer branding approach moving forward. Our gallery below does not include the S330 as the unit was not present at the time of writing.
