Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook 16, i3-1215U

80% Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook Review
Source: PC Mag English
Cloud-gaming Chromebooks contain some of the best hardware and features you'll find on any Chrome laptop, as they should, but the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook delivers all of that without that much of a premium over, say, a midrange consumer Chromebook. It's not quite as impressive as the Editors' Choice-winning Acer Chromebook 516 GE, but that laptop leads by a slim margin, keeping the top spot due to small touches like a proper SSD for storage and embellished WASD keys for easier gaming. In the most important metrics, the two are neck in neck, making the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook a smart buy if you're interested in cloud gaming but want to pay a little less.

Source: Lon.TV English
Lenovo's Gaming Chromebook is a pretty nice Chromebook even if you're not gaming. It has a nice 120hz 16:10 display that works great for game streaming and the i3 variant we have here performs quite well at most tasks.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


87%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
