Lenovo recently announced the release of two new Chromebooks, the N20P and N20. Both models come with features such as the updated version of Chrome OS, an 11.6-inch monitor and an 8 hour battery life. The only downfall is that Windows apps will not work on these books-including Microsoft Office. But the books will offer a program that is similar to Microsoft Office, Google Docs.
The Chromebooks are designed for optimal performance,security and portability. Chromebooks can be used online or offline to listen to music, edit pictures, and stream movies or TV shows. The books use a “Cloud Drive”, which means that all data is stored using online remote servers. The internal storage is 16GB, but google “Cloud” offers an additional 100GB and will automatically back up your files. In short, your files will be protected from malware and viruses since there is no data stored internally to attack.
While the N20 is more like a traditional notebook, the N20p offers a full 300 degree rotating screen which props up for easy watching and typing. The added touchscreen makes switching from one website to another faster and easier. Starting price for the N20 starts at 279$, which is great for students and workers on the go!
