Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad 11e

80% Lenovo ThinkPad 11e Chromebook
Source: PC Mag English
The Lenovo ThinkPad 11e Chromebook may cost a little more than most other Chrome OS laptops, and it is a bit heavier, but it is built like a tank and is well-suited to classroom duty and life on the road. Its quad-core processor handles multiple audio and video streams with aplomb, and its keyboard is standard ThinkPad quality. That said, a touch-screen would help take the sting out the $340 price tag. If the lack of a touch screen is a deal-breaker, check out our Editors' Choice, the Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02).

11.3":

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.

1.5 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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
