70% Lenovo N20 Chromebook review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
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.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

11.6":

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.
1.2 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.


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
