Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 11IGL05 (Chromebook 3 11)

75% Lenovo IdeaPad 3 Chromebook Review: Less than $200 goes a long way
Source: Phandroid English
If Lenovo had included even a glossy display over the matte-finished version, then this would be a near-perfect Chromebook. The keyboard is fantastic, the design looks good despite the plastic build, and the IdeaPad 3 just chugs along throughout almost any tasks you can throw at it. But that display. That darned display is what keeps me from making it a de-facto suggestion for anyone wanting a cheap laptop/Chromebook.

70% Lenovo Chromebook 3 (11-Inch)
Source: PC Mag English
If you've got less than $200 to spend on a laptop for a child or as a secondary machine, Lenovo's Chromebook 3 is an acceptable option, though its small, low-quality display leaves much to be desired.

Lenovo Ideapad 3 Review: The Little ($169) Chromebook That Could [Video]
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
When I unboxed this Chromebook, the question was “can a $169 device actually be worth buying?” Well, to make a long story short, YES. Does that mean this Chromebook is for everyone? Absolutely not. Many users want or need better internals or a nicer display. A lot of consumers want a 2-in-1 or perhaps a tablet and that’s okay. What I am saying is, for $169, this Chromebook will serve you well and is worth every penny and then some. While it may not be for everyone, it is definitely a great choice for many. If you need a cheap device, quickly that will actually put in work, this Chromebook is for you. Maybe you just want an inexpensive second device for the kids or simply to have as a backup around the house. The Lenovo Chromebook 3 is worth a look.

Lenovo Chromebook 3 11" Review - A $169 Intel Laptop!
Source: Lon.TV English
Walmart is currently offering a decent Chromebook for only $169! I found it to be a very capable device for the price point with decent performance out of its fanless N4020 processor.

Comment

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


Celeron N4020: Low power dual-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.8 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.60":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.12 kg:

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


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.


72.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
