Lenovo has announced the 16-inch Chromebook IdeaPad 5i, which benefits from a beautifully designed chassis and a large 16-inch (120Hz) display that’s ideal for students or in a home computing role for those who like to keep their space tidy want.
In addition to the sheer magnitude of its size, the IdeaPad 5i’s display also offers one 2.5K resolution, which makes fonts smoother and easier to read. It is color accurate thanks to a 100% sRGB color space and a 350 NITs Brightness.
There’s a cheaper display if you can get by with a more basic screen: 1080p, 45% NTSC, and 300 NITs. For reference: 72% sRGB corresponds to 100% sRGB. Finally, the hinge tilts 180 degrees and can lie flat on the table.
The keyboard is wide enough to accommodate a number pad, making it a good choice for Google Sheets, and the keys are comfortable, with a 1.5mm travel key. The trackpad is large and easy to use, even with the most complex gestures.
There are plenty of ports, like two USB-C, two USB-A and a microSD card reader. There’s also an anti-theft Kensington Nano Lock connector (great for schools and cafes) and the traditional 3.5mm audio connector.
We recommend the more expensive one 12th Gen Intel Core i3-1215U processor and 8GB of RAM Construction. The local store can go to 512GB, but we’re not sure you need that much with ChromeOS. It also runs Android apps, so it depends on our usage model.
Starts at $550we think Lenovo is offering great value with this IdeaPad 5i and potential Chromebook buyers should consider it when purchasing a model in this price range.
Regarding Chrome OS, Lenovo also showed the ThinkCentre M60q Chromebox, a tiny desktop computer designed to connect to a monitor. You can see it next to a 24-27 inch monitor in the photo above.
Despite its tiny size, it can be configured with an Intel Core i5 12th Generation with two DDR4 SODIMM 3200MHz memory modules that could easily reach 64GB.
It has many ports: 6x USB, 1x USB-C, 1x HDMI, 1x DP, Ethernet and more. IFA 2022 seems to be a good show for Chrome OS.
