After a slow start, there are now Chromebooks everywhere, with new models appearing regularly. Here’re four of the newest models.
The latest Chromebooks are from Lenovo: a standard 11.6-inch system with a 1,366 by 768 display for $279 and a touch version for $329. Called the N20 and N20p, they look like standard Chromebooks, but the N20p’s screen can rotate 300-degrees, providing the ability for it to be a keyboard centric system as well as a presentation machine and tablet.
Meanwhile, Asus engineers have been hard at work on their own Chromebooks. The C200 and C300 systems complement the company’s Chromebox desktop system and come with either an 11.6- or a 13.3-inch screen, but use the same Intel N283 dual core processor and include 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space. While the smaller C200 model measures 0.8- by12- by 7.9-inches and weighs 2.5 pounds, its bigger brother is 0.9- by 13- by 9.1-inches and weighs 3.1-pounds. The C200 will cost $250 and will define how low a Chromebook can go.
