Lenovo N22 11.6″ Touchscreen Chromebook
Lenovo N22 is a compact, portable and rugged, budget priced Chromebook notebook with an 11.6-inch IPS touch screen, and the basic specs of Intel Celeron N3050 processor, 2GB RAM memory, 16GB SSD flash storage, Chrome OS and modern connectivity including the 2 x USB 3.0 ports and HDMI.
Please note that this Lenovo N22 Chromebook is a certified renewed or refurbished machine that was preowned and tested and inspected to look and work like a brand new unit. You’ll get the original accessories and a 90-day warranty by the seller and will probably come in a generic brown box. You can have a peace of mind with this machine as only the sellers that perform very well can sell renewed products at Amazon.com.
The quarter two of 2015 release Intel Celeron N3050 is an entry level dual core processor at a 1.6Ghz to 2.2Ghz speeds and a Passmark benchmark score of 585. It is a compact Chromebook that measures 11.5L x 8.19W x 0.86H inches. There is a webcam with a built-in microphone for you to have a live conversation with friends and family. This is a durable laptop with the reinforcements around the hinges and ports and anti-peel keys. The typical Thermal Design Power- TDP is 6 watts for a longer battery life.
You’ll get the 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, a headphone/microphone combo, 2-in-1 Media Card Reader, an HDMI output for connectivity. And you’ll find the compact Chromebook, AC power supply and the warranty instruction included in the box. If you’re like most people that use the computer for mostly browsing the internet and typing up some documents then this Chromebook will be plenty for you. You’ll be fine as long as you don’t have heavy multitasking or storage needs.
You will need to rely on Cloud based storage wherever there is internet access or hook up an external hard drive via one of the USB ports. And you will be OK with 2-3 browsers and an app open simultaneously. You can also play the Chrome games without problems. Chrome OS has the built-in security that updates itself regularly in the background without you doing anything. You do not need to worry about the harmful viruses. The notebook starts in just 8 seconds and shuts down quickly.
The performance of the Celeron N3050 is similar to the previous generation Celeron N2815 and is adequate for basic daily tasks like office applications and web surfing, but not for the more complex and demanding tasks. The built-in graphics card is the Intel HD Braswell which has twice the speed of the Intel HD Bay Trail and you can play the Chrome games that are not as demanding as the Windows games. You’re getting it at such a reduced price simply because of being a renewed machine. It can make a great day-to-day computer for students or for school or home use.
