Lenovo’s Ideapad Slim 3 14 inch Chromebook is on sale for $149, which isn’t a bad price for a ChromeOS laptop with a full HD display and a MediaTek Kompanio 520 processor… even if it has just 4GB of RAM.

But if you’re looking for something with a little more oomph, the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook is on sale for $329. Sure, it costs nearly twice as much, but this 2-in-1 ChromeOS tablet has an OLED display, 8GB of RAM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor.

  1. Hopefully people like will be able to skip buying any tech for at least 2 years as I don’t see any real improvements happening until a better battery system comes along. Not to mention the possibility for better native Linux support on mobile devices. Either would be enough to inspire purchasing tech again, until then hopefully that crap I have will last long enough.

    1. I agree with you.

      My Legion gaming laptop I hope will last me for at least 10 more years. It’s a perfectly good system, has been very good to me, and to be honest, it’s all I need. It’s airgapped, so I’m not concerned about security updates.

      Microsoft likes to deprecate hardware with new releases just to induce the public to purchase more computers, which creates more e-waste and it’s disgusting.

      Processors and graphics cards HAVE gotten a lot faster over the years, but the software bloat has negated a lot of those gains. I did some research recently, and compared FPU performance from the original Core processor to modern Core processors, and found that single threaded FPU performance, clock for clock, is 10 times faster today.

      So while processors have gotten a lot faster, the software bloat (even the GCC compiler these days is terribly bloated) have made it seem like we haven’t had a lot of gains.

      It’s sad really. I’m sure with a lot of editing and hacking, I could probably install Windows 7 on my Legion, and I bet you it would fly on that machine, and I’d get to run all the software I run today on it just fine. Just for reference.

      It’s all about the MONEY with these corps. It’s disgusting. They don’t care about the consumers or what we want.

        1. I removed the battery when I bought the system 3 years ago just for that concern. I run it completely off AC. It’s been quite a performer without the battery.
