Reviewing The Lenovo IdeaPad N20P Chromebook

The Lenovo N20P Chromebook has managed to set the bar higher for what a tablet and what a Chromebook can be. It has a few really great features that aren’t yet commonplace with Chromebooks. It has a responsive touch screen, which is something only seen with the higher-end Chromebooks. Albeit, the N20P is one of the more expensive models. All of the included features make it worth it.

Style

The N20P Chromebook gets several points for style. Lenovo have attempted to break away from their more well-known “business design” approach and go for something a little more stylish. It features a smooth, gray top with the Chrome and Lenovo logos. It’s small, lightweight, and ultraportable.

As with most ultraportable laptops, it’s designed to taper away towards the front edges. This makes it feel even smaller than it really is. It’s around 1.8 centimeters thick and weighs less than three pounds. Compare that to the previous Yoga model which was slightly thicker and weighed significantly more. It’s great for ig you are on the move, travelling loads.

If you spend a lot of time typing, then you’ll love the N20P keyboard. The buttons resemble the same thin style as with the high-end Lenovo laptops. The buttons have slightly curved bottoms, which actually helps improve typing accuracy. It also features the signature large Lenovo touch pad.

Screen

The screen is 11.6 inches, which is large enough to enjoy videos, but small enough to remain ultraportable. The hybrid swivel allows for turning the screen up to 300 degrees. Viewing from these off-angles can be problematic for some laptops, but the N20P has surprisingly good viewing quality from all angles.

Of course, the best thing about the screen is that it has touch capacity. It can be used as well as any tablet with the Chrome OS. Touch capacity is still new for the Chrome OS. It wasn’t designed to work with touchscreens in the same way Windows 8 is.

If there is any complaint about the screen it’s that the hybrid hinge just isn’t enough. It’s better than no hinge at all, but with the 300 degree capability, it seems like they should have just went the full nine yards and allowed for 360 degree swivel capability. Unfortunately it does not support such a wide range of motion.

Capability

As with any Chromebook, it has its advantages and disadvantages. The Chrome OS isn’t really designed as a replacement for Windows or Linux. It is a web-only operating system. If you’re comfortable using web-based applications, then it’s perfect for you. However, you can’t download and run typical .exe files and programs. That’s why many people use their Chromebooks in conjunction with standard laptops.

That being said, there is some decent computing power beneath the hood. The best models features a quad-core Intel Celeron Processor with up to 4GB of RAM.

If you’re new to Chromebooks and want a good, user-friendly model to get started with, then the N20P is perfect for you. It has enough power and functionality to handle almost any needs of the average user.

One of the best Laptop Tablet’s on the market…

ASUS Transformer Review

Transformer might seem like the name of a movie, but it is really the name that top computer maker, Asus, gave to its handy hybrid computer. The reason that this notebook computer is called a transformer is that the keyboard is removable, and the monitor is a touch screen. That means that this device can function as both a laptop with a full keyboard and a table computer with the keyboard on the screen!

Features Of The T200TA-C1-BL

The model number of the 2-1 computer by Asus that is being reviewed is T200TA-C1-BL. This is important to note because the company produces other models. Also, Asus is known a a company that produces all sorts of affordable desktops, laptops, and tablets that provide a good value for the money.

Before considering reviews, consider the basic features of the computer. These are features of this model:

  • A generous, 12-inch monitor display
  • 4 GB of RAM

Other 2-1 Computers To Compare This Model To…

Just for comparison purposes, it is interesting to note that the Asus Transformer is often compare to the 2-in-1 300 by Dell. They both provide a good value for the price. However, some reviewers note that the Dell has a very good reputation for battery life and more storage space at a somewhat lower price.

Also, Asus makes a model, T100TA, that has a monitor that is one inch smaller than the model being reviewed in this article, and it is about $100 cheaper. It also has had good reviews of the battery life.

Great Features Of The Asus 2-1 Computer

People like the stylish look of this very modern computer. They also say that the keyboard is as comfortable to use as most full-sized keyboards. The display is large enough to use, and the storage can get expanded easily with the “smart” hard drive bay. The only major complaint is that the battery life could be better, and one owner said that he wished they would have found room to add a second battery.

Of course, it is always possible to carry an extra battery in the computer bag or even a pocket when people know they will be far from a charging station for awhile.

Biggest Advantages Of The Asus 2-1

This is a great product for photographers to carry around on the job. The display is clear, and it is very portable. While it wouldn’t be powerful enough to make a gaming computer, it functions very well as both a tablet computer or a laptop.

As of today, there is no one machine that will appeal to everybody. People who want a gaming machine would probably be better off putting together their own desktop machine and having a separate portable. However, this model travels very well from a desk to the road, so it is suggested for folks who want that flexibility.
