Lenovo introduced a number of new Chromebooks at Mobile World Congress. Devices include the IdeaPad Flex 5i and 3i and the IdeaPad Duet 3.
The IdeaPad 5i and 3i have 14-inch and 15-inch displays, respectively. Both have an FHD IPS panel with a peak brightness of 400 nits. Both Chromebooks are 2-in-1 convertibles. Aside from that and the screen quality, however, the two devices differ significantly.
The IdeaPad 5i is the higher end of the two, but both devices are on the higher end in terms of screen quality on Chromebooks, which tend to be lower resolution and often have TN panels. The 5i can run an Intel Pentium 8505, an Intel Core i3-1215U or an Intel Core i5-1235U.
The 5i can also be outfitted with 4GB/8GB LPDDR4X storage and a 256/512GB SSD and features two USB-C ports, one USB-A port, a microSD slot and a Kensington Nano Security slot .
The IdeaPad 3i is significantly less powerful and is clearly aimed at students or younger users. It will run an Intel Celeron N4500 or Pentium N6000 with 4/8GB LPDDR4X memory. The 3i is limited to eMMC storage, and you can range from 32GB to 128GB. It only has one USB-C port and one USB-A port, but swaps out the Kensington slot for an HDMI port.
The IdeaPad Flex 3i starts at $399 and will be available in May. The IdeaPad Flex 5i with an Intel processor will retail from $499 and will launch in June.
Lenovo also introduced the IdeaPad Duet 3. This is the latest in the Duet range, and it’s been a regular feature on our list of the best Chromebooks you can buy. We have awarded the Duet 5 as a recommended product. The new 2-in-1 is powered by a Snapdragon 7c and packs 4/8GB of RAM. Its eMMC flash storage starts at 64GB and reaches a maximum of 256GB.
It features an impressive 11-inch 2K display with touch and stylus support. The keyboard is also detachable, making it a tablet and Chromebook in one.
The IdeaPad Duet 3 starts at $399 and will be available in May.
These Chromebooks are just a fraction of the many announcements Lenovo made at MWC.
