90% Lenovo Chromebook C340 (11.6") review: This pretty laptop is practically perfect for the price
Source: Android Central English
With updated ports, two color options, a shiny aluminum lid and the same dependable performance we loved on last year's model, the Lenovo C340 improves on the original in almost every way.

Lenovo Chromebook C340 review: You get what you pay for
Source: Android Authority English
Lenovo’s problem here is the competition. There are literally dozens of models available from a range of manufacturers in the $200 to $400 space. Thanks to the size and price, I would recommend the C340 to middle schoolers who aren’t sticklers for specs and performance. If you want more from your Chromebook, you may have to spend more to get it. Lenovo itself has a faster, 15-inch version of the C340, as well as clamshell variants such as the S340 14-inch and S340 15-inch.

67% Lenovo Chromebook C340-11 review: Budget-friendly 2-in-1 for school basics
Source: CNet English
The downside to using this Chromebook for entertainment is its speakers. The two-in-one's stereo pair are quiet and even at 75% volume the sound comes out as a whisper. When played at full volume, the speakers distort audio with crackling mids and highs and a nearly nonexistent bass. Take advantage of the headphone jack and Bluetooth connectivity when you can -- it's the better choice.

Lenovo Chromebook C340 Review: The Best Chromebook On A Budget
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
As we always do, we come to the point of every review where you want to know whether you should buy this Chromebook or not. If your budget is the $300 and under sort, I would absolutely say yes. In this price range, you’d be hard-pressed to find an overall experience this good. Sure, there are devices that may be a tad better that fall into this price range from time to time, but the C340 is constantly under $300.

Lenovo C340 (11″) Chromebook review: Just the basics
Source: Talk Android English
$300 isn’t bottom-tier by any stretch, but the C340 doesn’t really manage to punch above its weight class in any significant way. You’re not getting ripped off, but you’re not getting a steal of a machine, either. As a productivity machine, I’d lean towards no, but for casual use like watching videos, checking Facebook, and playing around with a few apps, then yeah, I think you can do far worse than what Lenovo is offering.

80% Lenovo Chromebook C340-15 review: A perfectly average big-screen Chromebook
Source: Android Central English
If you like a big screen on your Chromebook, Lenovo makes the most reliable one around. While the C340-15 may not look like much on paper, the i3 model will make a reliable workhorse for students, teachers, and regular users, too.

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.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 600: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 500, the 600 offers improved display outputs. Compared to the faster UHD Graphics 605, the 600 offers less shaders at lower clock speeds.

Intel UHD Graphics 610: Integrated GPU (GT1) with 12 EUs found on some low-end Pentium Gold CPUs (e.g. Whisky-Lake based 15 W ULV series). Same performance as the old HD Graphics 610 and 510.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Gemini Lake:

Celeron N4000: Low power dual-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.6 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter.

Intel Kaby Lake Refresh:

i3-8130U: On the Kaby-Lake architecture based dual core SoC clocked at 2.2 to 3.4 GHz with HyperThreading (4 Threads) and an integrated UHD Graphics 620 graphics card clocked at up to 1 GHz.

Pentium 4417U: On the Kaby-Lake architecture (Kaby Lake Refresh series in 14nm+) based dual core SoC clocked at 2.3  (no Turbo Boost) with HyperThreading (4 Threads) and an integrated UHD Graphics 610 graphics card clocked at up to 300 - 900 MHz.

1.2 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.98 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


83.38%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
