Lenovo 100S Chromebook review

 

A low-priced Chromebook that works well for common tasks.

So very cheap ; Battery life ; Aluminum palm rest

Struggles with multiple tabs ; Poor sound quality

A good, cheap laptop for your light to medium internet browsing needs, the Lenovo 100S' battery life and size makes it a great travel companion.

Lenovo IdeaPad 100S Chromebook review

 

Lenovo's entry-level IdeaPad 100S Chromebook is simply too cheap for its own good.

A great Chromebook is the computing equivalent of a Swiss Army Knife. It can be pulled out anytime you need to complete a quick task or have a short web browsing session. It isn’t intended to repair your car or cut down a tree, but I have to wonder...

Lenovo IdeaPad 100S Chromebook review

 

The Lenovo 100S Chromebook is the quintessential Chromebook. It's cheap and a bit bland-looking, powered by a budget Intel processor and packing a meager, low-resolution screen.

The inexpensive Lenovo 100S Chromebook has a comfortable keyboard, battery life that'll last a workday, and just enough performance to get rudimentary tasks done.

Google's Chrome OS operating system is limited when compared to identically priced competitors that run Windows 10.

The Lenovo 100S Chromebook delivers on the promise of adequate performance at a low price, but dirt-cheap Windows 10 machines have it beat there.

Lenovo 100S Chromebook

 

The Lenovo 100S Chromebook offers a sleek design along with solid performance and battery life in our tests at a price that's low, even for a Chrome-OS-based laptop.

Low price. Sleek design. Solid performance and battery life in testing.

No touch screen. Narrow viewing angles. Poor-quality webcam.

Conclusion Our Editors' Choice chromebook remains the Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02); its screen is smaller at 10.1 inches, but its IPS panel offers great viewing quality, as well as touch and convertible tablet-style capability. If you're faithful...

Lenovo 100s Chromebook Review

 

This 11.6-inch laptop might not have enough performance for everyone but it can handle basic web browsing with ease. Starting at $179, the 100s Chromebook feels like a great deal but we found sometimes you get what you pay for.

Low price ; Solid build ; Great keyboard and trackpad

Poor speakers ; Limiting Google Chrome OS ; Wobbly screen ; Lenovo's 100s Chromebook has flaws in just about every area we looked at, but for $179 they are easy to look past.

Three things to know about the Lenovo Ideapad 100S Chromebook

Review: Lenovo Ideapad 100S Chromebook

 

We recently reviewed Lenovo's Ideapad 100S , an inexpensive Windows 10 laptop with enough power for everyday use and moderate battery life. The laptop is ideal for many users, such as students and casual web surfers, but Windows 10 isn't everyone's cup...

If you’ve used and like the Windows 10 version of the Ideapad 100S, you’ll like the Chromebook version too, assuming you prefer using Chrome OS. It comes with the added benefit of being about $20 cheaper than the Windows 10 version, but of course...

The Lenovo 100S Chromebook Review – Small Laptop, Small Price

 

When I was given the opportunity to review the Lenovo 100S Chromebook, I jumped at the chance. I don't know what it is about Chromebooks but I've always had a soft spot for them. While there are some who feel that Chromebooks are nothing more than a...

Solid construction, good battery life, vibrant screen

Only 2GB of RAM

The Lenovo 100S Chromebook performed well, lasted all day and was a joy to use. With its grippy exterior and its solid construction, the Chromebook should be able to take whatever you throw at it.
