Lenovo has unveiled the IdeaPad Flex 3i, another budget Chromebook from the company. The IdeaPad Flex 3i will start at €449 in May and comes in two colours. Multiple memory and configurations will be available too, but all IdeaPad Flex 3i models rely on eMMC flash storage.

Lenovo has announced the IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook at MWC 2022, a 15.6-inch Chromebook with Intel Pentium Silver N6000 and Intel Celeron N4500 processors. According to Lenovo, the IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook measures 362.02 x 248.00 x 18.94 mm and weighs at least 1.91 kg. As promotional materials show, the IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook has a 360° hinge, allowing you to use it as a laptop, tablet or in tent mode.

Supposedly, the Chromebook will last up to 10 hours on a single charge. Lenovo adds that the IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook has 2x 2 W stereo speakers and 4 GB or 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. Moreover, the machine will come with 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB of eMMC flash storage. Unfortunately, there is no 256 GB option like on the IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook, nor any NVMe SSDs. Also, all configurations have the same 1080p, IPS, 300-nit and touchscreen display. Incidentally, the IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook has the following ports:

  • 1x 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack
  • 1x HDMI port
  • 1x microSD card reader
  • 1x USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C
  • 1x USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A

The IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook will launch in May, mirroring the IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook. However, the former will be more expensive than the latter at €449. For context, Lenovo will sell the IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook for €100 less than the IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook. Lenovo has not announced pricing for all IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook configurations, but it has confirmed that the machine will be available in Abyss Blue and Arctic Grey.
