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).
