At the end of the day, if a Chromebook gets the job done well, is a little bit fun to use, and doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall apart while doing it, you have an absolute winner at a $349 price point. And I’d imagine as time goes on, we’ll even see deals on this Chromebook that will take it down under $300, and that is just crazy. Lenovo has absolutely nailed it with the Flex 3i, and this device has me wildly excited to see what other manufacturers build and release around this very capable small-core processor family from Intel.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
