Lenovo’s latest Chrome OS laptop is coming in October for $179 and up. The Lenovo 100S Chromebook features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and up to an Intel Celeron N2840 Bay Trail processor.
While the specs seem a bit dated at a time when Cherry Trail, Braswell, and Skylake chips are available, the price is right: the Lenovo 100S Chromebook should sell for about $179 when it launches in October.
The laptop features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, HDMI, a headset jack, and a 1MP webcam.
It supports up to 4GB of RAM and up to 32GB of eMMC storage. Customers will also get 100GB of free Google Drive storage space for two years.
The Lenovo 100S Chromebook measures about 11.8″ x 8″ x 0.8″ and weighs 2.6 pounds. Lenovo says the Chromebook should get up to 8 hours of battery life.
