IFA 2018 brought a few premium Chromebooks, and one of those was Lenovo’s new Yoga Chromebook. The premium laptop was set to debut in October, and today pre-orders have opened up for the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook at Best Buy.
The best gifts for Android users
Looking back to IFA, the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook stands out not just for its specs, but its size. The behemoth is not your average convertible with its huge 15-inch display. It’s a big machine and it does nothing to hide that, measuring in at 14.2-inches x 9.8-inches and weighing a whopping 4.2 lbs.
Under the hood, though, the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook packs some respectable specifications. For this pre-order listing, those include an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The 15.6-inch display on this model is a touchscreen FHD panel which allows for around 10 hours of battery life with charging over USB-C. The machine also comes in a “Midnight Blue” colorway on its aluminum build.
