Lenovo’s latest Windows laptops for education are compact, durable computers that range from an entry-level model with a pretty lousy display to higher-priced configurations with FHD touchscreen displays, pen support, and 360-degree hinges.

All of the new models are also powered by current-gen processors, with several models featuring Intel Alder Lake-N chips and one system coming with an AMD Ryzen 7000 series mobile processor (although since AMD’s chip lineup is all over the place, it’s unclear whether that means it’ll feature AMD’s latest architecture of if it’ll be a chip using previous-gen tech).

Lenovo 13w Gen 2

Lenovo says the new Lenovo 100w Gen 4Lenovo 300w Yoga Gen 4, Lenovo 500w Yoga Gen 4, and Lenovo 13w Yoga Gen 2 laptops all feature rugged designs with spill-resistant keyboards and MIL-STD-810H tested designs. Some models also have pry-resistant keys on the keyboard and rubber bumpers.

While Lenovo says these laptops are designed for the education market and built to withstand a full day in classroom settings, they will likely be available for purchase from Lenovo.com and other retail outlets in the future.

Here’s a run-down of key specs for each new model:

  1. Shame these N100 chips are showing poor early benchmarks. They’re on par with an i3 chip I owned in 2013.

  2. Hope to see substantial improvement from Intel with these chips compared with their Celeron/Pentium N series. Also glad to see competition in this space from AMD’s Mendocino. Compact, fanless laptops with these processors + 8 GB RAM + SSD in a compact form factor would be practical machines for some use cases with potentially very good battery life.
