Lenovo’s new entry-level ThinkPad laptop for 2016 is a 13 inch model that’s cleverly called the Lenovo ThinkPad 13. It features an Intel Core i5 processor, USB Type-C connectivity, and a ThinkPad keyboard with a Lenovo TrackPoint pointing stick in the center.

Oh yeah, and the ThinkPad 13 will come in two versions: Windows or Chrome OS.

The Windows model should be available in April for $449 and up, while the Chromebook version launches in June for $399 and up.

The operating system isn’t the only thing setting the two models apart. The Verge reports that the Windows version has one USB Type-C port and three full-sized USB ports, while the Chrome OS model has two USB Type-C ports and one full-sized USB port.

Lenovo will offer models with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of solid state storage. Lenovo says the notebooks are also MIL-SPEC tested for durability.
