love the idea of living in the cloud but don’t want to resign to the fate of Samsung or Acer’s? then you are in luck cos’ Chinese PC maker, Lenovo has already jumped on the Chromebook bandwagon with its Lenovo ThinkPad X131e Chromebook (not to be confused with the current AMD-equipped X131e) and this baby is all geared up for the academic market. it is basically the same 11.6-inch laptop, built with the same ruggedness to withstand the abuse of unruly students but now running on Chrome OS. along with this fast booting OS and the near-mandatory cloud lifestyle, students will be treated with an Intel processor, a 1,366 x 768 HD LED anti-glare display, three USB ports, a low-light capable webcam, WiFi connectivity, HDMI and VGA ports (essential for presentation), plus some ‘customization’ options such as custom colors, asset tagging services, and school logo etching, to better appeal to both students and the academic institutions (which are, btw, Lenovo’s main target customers). basically, this is a machine targeted towards educational institutions and not so much for individuals but who knows? Lenovo might surprise us if this really took off. the Lenovo ThinkPad X131e Chromebook is listed on Chrome devices website with a starting price of $459.
