Lenovo has added a new model to its equipment catalog under the Google platform, a Chromebook Flex 3i that stands out for its convertible format and a contained price.
Chromebooks are today a real alternative to Windows and Mac for a group of users seeking simplicity, ease of use, administration or security. Although the level of hardware has increased in recent years and some models can be found that boast similar hardware to that offered by the Windows platform, laptops under Chrome OS are still the majority in the entry range.
This segment is part of this Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3i, a high mobility thin and light convertible, with 11.6-inch multi-touch screen and a hinge system that allows you to rotate the screen up to 360 degrees allowing multiple modes of use, ultraportable, tablet or store modes for presentations. The power and volume buttons are located on the side and are thus accessible no matter what mode you are using the computer in.
Its hardware base is basic, but it should be enough to cover the team’s focus with the latest low-end Intel processors, the Gemini Lake Refresh. Like the latest Google devices, the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3i can run web applications, those of the Chrome Store and also those of Android thanks to the support of the Google Play Store and regular Linux applications.

Lenovo’s new Chromebook is available in some regions priced at 329 dollars. A basic model in hardware, but with the attractiveness of a contained price to meet all budgets and in a convertible format that allows to offer laptop and tablet functions in a single device. Lenovo has a good collection of Chromebooks in catalog, such as the attractive 2 in 1 “Duet”. Unfortunately, as we said in the Chromebooks guide, they are not as well distributed as Apple Macs or everything that comes with Windows.
