On the technical front, Lenovo hasn't compromised. The laptop is powered by Intel’s 13th generation U-series processors, with choices ranging from the dual-core i3-1315U to the quad-core i5-1334U. This diverse range caters to a wide spectrum of processing needs. Coupled with 8GB of LPDDR4x-4266 RAM, users can expect smooth multitasking. Storage options are equally robust, starting from a 128GB eMMC 5.1 and scaling up to more capacious choices like the 256GB or 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSDs.
For those keen on multimedia, the Chromebook offers stereo speakers (2W x2) enhanced with Waves MaxxAudio® technology, promising a superior audio experience. It also features a 1080p webcam with fixed focus. Powering all these features is a robust integrated Li-Polymer 51Wh battery.
