Well, right on the heels of the Acer Chromebook R11 being listed for a fantastic price of $249, we now have another sensational offer on a very, very powerful Chromebook.
Spotted by +Brent Sullivan, Lenovo’s current Chromebook on offer and being advertised with a very slick marketing campaign is the Thinkpad Chromebook 13. This device comes in quite a few different variants, and not all are that great.
At the bottom of the pile, we get a crappy TN panel at 1366×768 resolution, Celeron processor, 16GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. Not terrible, but the display makes it a very poor experience.
The deal we are talking about today, however, is on the top-of-the line version. It comes equipped with a 6th-gen Core i5, 32GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and an anti-glare 1080p IPS display.
It is paired with a sturdy, military-spec build, fantastic keyboard, great trackpad, and large battery. You can see our review right here of the Celeron version with the 1080p display.
This device is one of the fastest and sturdiest Chromebooks available, and it has the Play Store available via the Crosh method outlined here.
This is a Chromebook that can be a daily driver and handle any task you could possibly consider. And for $399?? This is a deal worth getting your hands on.
UPDATE: Currently out of stock, but no indication that this was a one-time affair. Keep checking!
