    I love my Chromebook works very well. I was looking for something affordable and this was definitely it for me. $100 is a steal for what it is capable of. I would definitely purchase Lenovo products again.

    I usually never write reviews but this little gem deserves it. For the price this can't be beat. It is well constructed and lightweight. 2 USB C ports and 2 USB-A ports and a little micro SD memory expansion slot that I have not used. Battery life is great, boots up fast and so far no problems. I bought this as a way to work remotely when I don't want to lug the heavy corporate laptop but could still work if needed, and if I lost or damaged it I wouldn't have to worry too much. - installed Linux - installed VPN software - installed remote desktop software - installed MS outlook and Teams Enough tools to work remotely, albeit a little cramped. I have also attached this to a docking station (Dell) and with no software required I have been able to use an external wireless keyboard and mouse and drive 3 screens with no problems. Downsides: Google's lousy software and support. My MS Teams stopped working due to a change by my company IT, so I was required to reinstall it. Google goes not allow a reinstall (?) and exits from the play store with a useless message. So I am now stuck with the Teams web interface. FWIW half the apps don't work too well as Google is trying to shoehorn Android software onto the ChromeOS platform. I feel I am back in the days where things didn't "just work". Google's support and development of ChromeOS is just pathetic and seems almost like an afterthought to Android. However, to be fair, for most users everything should just work perfectly, and they should not have to tweak anything and face any of the issues that are very specific to my specific needs.

    I purchased this laptop when it was $80. So far it has exceeded my expectations. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is due to the screen. The TN panel is really washed out and colors do not show very well, but other than that this is a great buy. The USB C and USB A ports it comes with are great for such a small and light laptop. The laptop is pretty snappy and I have not seen any sluggishness. Battery life at about 10 hours is enough to get through my day. The additional microSD card reader allows me to store video files when I travel so I can watch movies and tv shows without an internet connection. Lenovo always has great keyboards and trackpads and this laptop is no different, the only issue is the keys are not backlit. At this price point, I really could not have expected that, but it would have been a nice addition. One thing I really like that is not in any review is that there is a rubberized strip on the bottom. I use this laptop on a lap tray and it stays in place very well and does not move during use on the tray's smooth surface. I would recommend this to anyone that needs a small lightweight general-use laptop. Even at the normal price of $140 it is a good buy, but when on sale it is a steal.

    I got this to replace a tablet for my 84 year old mother--wanted to dummy it down (Facebook, eMail, Netflix, Youtube). However, it turned out MUCH better than expected--hate to give it to her now. ;-) It is solid (looks like the same for all their Chromebook models), boots quick, is VERY fast and responsive (could be Chrome OS), keys felt great, it zips around just fine. Even has AC network (clocked at over 300 mb). It has more ports than others I saw, even a microSD card slot for expansion (although not highlighted anywhere). It is faster than my wife's 15" Lenovo with Windows, 8 gb ram, SSD, AMD, etc. Completely impressed. It is usually 169, got if for $79 (yep--killer deal). I'm thinking of quickly getting another extra. The new model uses I3 instead of Celeron (probably reason for discount). What a great surprise.

    Premium notebook at a budget cost

    Just going to lay it out simply. I got this at an insane price but its still worth it at retail. Pros: - Build quality is great. Keyboard sounds and feels great. Sound is actually amazing for being what it is. - Weight is balanced. Heavy enough to feel solid and premium, light enough to go anywhere. - Battery life is insane. I bought this 9 days ago and I'm still on a single charge with 28% remaining. Daily use for shorter periods of checking email, watching youtube, browsing, etc. - Zippy quick. the N4020 is worth its weight in gold. Solid functionality - Open and go or close and set aside, no need to shut down. - Linux subsystems Cons: - The one complaint I have about the build quality - trackpad and clicker do feel a bit cheap but not enough to be annoying. - Screen. It's small so not good for everything. Colors are a bit washed out and not super bright. - Glorified android phone. Nuances that come with chromeOS. (apps, functionality) - Large bezels around the screen

    I bought this tiny laptop because I was exhausted from my heavy windows gaming laptop during my trip. It is a great deal with just a total of $90 and it is surprising it comes with a universal 45W Type-C PD adapter. This laptop is very light, with almost 9h of battery usage time. The N4020 is not good in performance but works smoothly in Chrome OS while web browsing, checking email, or watching youtube videos. You do will notice a slow down while running a Linux app, like VScode(this even can run vscode!), or view an online google sheet. It has two full-function type-c ports, good design. The screen was not good in both resolution and limited view angle, but enough for this price. However, I would recommend the Lenovo Chromebook 3 11' touch screen version with IPS screen rather than TN in this version. The touchscreen version has a much better view angle.

    Reviews and descriptions for the Lenovo Chromebook 3 we're right on the money. The Chromebook size and vercatility we're what first appealed to me. I'm reminded of a Netbook I'd had years prior when they were still in production and had always wished for another. That aside the Chromebook is excellent for productivity. I have 2 accounts setup for my wife and I and we rotate between them seamlessly. Office can also be setup and their is the Playstore built in for favorite app access. While the graphics are far from industry setting, they do what they are required to for daily tasking. Taking notes is a since, battery life is longetitive even during heavy use, storage is ample enough and I've experienced little to no lag times between processes. Extremely good value for the price and excellent tool for students, writers, home gig workers, and general users within the home.

    The quality of this item for the price is incredible. Basically, it's a mini-laptop without Windows. If you use Chrome as your browser, you won't notice any difference, aside from it being faster than Windows, and, unfortunately, it's limited print abilities. My Brother printer is not compatible, so I couldn't use this as my primary computer without buying a Chromebook-friendly printer. Setup consisted of logging into my Google account. Voila! Everything synched. Battery life is very long, and the unit itself is lightweight. In short, I love it!

    The Chromebook is pretty good for the price, It can do light duties without issues. The charging system is using USB C ports which is very practical instead of the barrel type. Also both ports on the left and right can be used for charging. The dimensions given in this website are not accurate. The body is slightly larger, but the weight is lighter.

    For a very cheap Chromebook the hardware preforms very well, more than I expected. #2 pro is the amount of ports on this. Too many devices are eliminating ports and it seemed like every cheap Chromebook I looked at had nearly nothing. Obviously you aren't getting lots of ports like a big laptop, let alone a DVD drive, but this isn't a big laptop. Battery life is superb The main issue with this device is the track pad frankly sucks. No amount of setting tweaking makes it work comfortably. So I hope you like external desktop mice. The screen is pretty low quality but seems to be in line for the price. You can't expect much. The Chrome OS itself is what it is. I've got my problems with it but it does its job. Also boot-up time can be slow, it feels like powering it on (not when it was hibernating, but fully shut down) takes so long I don't think I hit the power key correctly. In fact maybe that is exactly what the problem is, the power key(which is literally a key on the keyboard, not a button) is finnicky.

    Don't like how to copy and paste

    It's okay, one thing I hate about Chrome OS is how to copy and paste. I spent quite a bit of time trying to find out a way to copy and paste with the right click. To copy with a Chromebook we have to select the text like everything else and use Ctrl + c, then paste Ctrl + v, to paste. On a Windows computer we have the option to select the text, then right-click on it and copy, then right click to paste. On the Windows computer, this can be done with one hand using the mouse. On the Chromebook I have to use the touchpad which I hate and use the keyboard. All my laptop I used so far I use a USB mouse. My first computer wasn't Widows , it was DOS, I am so used to Windows.

    Best budget chromebook. [so far]

    I bought various budget chromebooks for my kids. These are convenient computers to always leave on and use on demand, like in my 3d printer closet for tuning. Yes it has an old cpu, and is slightly laggy, and you should run one program at a time, but its cheap, it lasts at least 5 hours easily. Trackpad sucks, keyboard is fine, screen is quite lousy when not viewed straight. All in all, it is great budget pc if u do not need typical pc requirements and just need anything off a browser. I have the AMD one as well (overall this CPU is better imo), and I am considering getting the ARM one with touchscreen. (oh god, 100$ touch screen lol, it couldn't be that bad)

    Got it new for $80. No touchscreen and the viewing angles are okay but not the best, but everything else is pretty good for that price. Stuff like Youtube looks so good. I don't even realize it's not FHD Speakers are plenty loud for the stuff I tried. Keyboard and trackpad feel good. Battery life is long and the charger is fast. Many of my Google Play apps work great with a mouse/keyboard/touchpad. I was able to install Linux steam and play games that aren't graphics intensive. This can also run emulators great too. Controllers work in android compatible mode, not so great in Linux mode.

    Your service was fantastic My friends received the PC at the same day I live in Israel and i asked a friend to bring it to me Just that now that I got it I payed attention that I made a mistake and i bought a Chromebook instead of a Windows... And here in Israel the Chromebook is not used... I see that my returned date is gone but maybe I can still change it?? The problem is that my friend didn't bring the original box because didn't fit in his luggage... Is this a problem?? I didn't touch the PC yet is still brain new. What do you suggest me to do?

    First Chromebook, first Lenovo in a long time. I found this laptop to be a big surprise. First of all, know what it is- it's a a very budget-level computing device. For web browsing, document writing, and other basic tasks, it's comfortable and easy to use. As a longtime Android user, the sync with my phone is a nice touch and seamless. Overall, I found myself using this far more than I expected. The ChromeOS is lightweight. Just jump in and go. I even recorded a couple videos using the built-in webcam. It was good enough! I wouldn't expect to do anything workload intensive on this. But as a budget computer for basic tasks, I was quite impressed. Screen is lackluster and I wish the keyboard was backlit. But for the price, it delivers.

    It is an outstanding value for the price. Easily capable of fulfilling the requirements of surfing the net, being cool and lightweight on her lap, and streaming media. Bluetooth and WIFI work well. Headphones and mouse paired quickly. And it manages 210mbps from the WIFI. More than adequate for the given use. The screen is definitely the least impressive aspect, and has a fairly narrow viewing angle for best results. Still fine for the low light conditions it is mostly used in.
