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.

  1. Wait.. what the heck is the acer computer that you tucked in at the end?

    1. A typo — I’d just finished writing an article about Acer and my fingers hadn’t caught up yet.

      I meant to say Lenovo.

      1. Ah cool.. any idea what the 13″ model is? 4 Gig’s of ram, plus 13″ screen would be a sweet spot for a low end linux notebook.
