It’s a tricky one. One the one hand, performance is reliable, Chrome OS is great to use, and there’s that touchscreen and flexible hinge, but there are also several significant issues, each of which could individually serve as deal-breakers. Students tend to enjoy listening to music and watching movies during their time off, and the N20’s display and speakers are poor. We’re also sure that many consumers value screen quality above touch-sensitivity, and would have preferred Lenovo to focus harder on getting the basics right. Perhaps even more serious is the frustrating keyboard, which isn’t enjoyable to use.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
