Last year’s Lenovo Chromebook C330 stole hearts for many Chrome OS fans, and now it’s getting a successor. As teased last month, the Lenovo Chromebook C340 series has gone official. Here are all the specs and pricing details.
Unlike the C330, the Lenovo Chromebook C340 comes in two different sizes. The first of the two is a direct successor to the original with an 11-inch HD IPS display on a 2-in-1-style hinge. That display is still a touchscreen, and it also features slightly smaller bezels compared to the previous model. That leaves it with a footprint that’s no larger than a typical sheet of paper, and the thickness has also been slimmed to 17.9 mm.
The second size is a 15-inch behemoth that offers up a 15.6-inch FHD IPS touchscreen display on a 2-in-1 hinge as well as a better processor. Both of these machines are powered by Intel chips this time around compared to the previous MediaTek offering. But where the 11-inch C340 Chromebook is capped with an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, the 15-inch can have an Intel Core i3-8130U processor. Strangely enough, though, the 15-inch model can only have up to 4 GB of RAM, where the 11-inch can have up to 8 GB.

Both machines have two USB-C ports, a microSD card reader, and a headphone jack. The 11-inch Lenovo C340 Chromebook offers two USB-A ports, while the 15-inch only offers one. Battery life is rated at 10 hours for both models. The 15-inch model also has an optional backlit keyboard.
Lenovo will kick off sales for the 11-inch model of the C340 in September. Pricing starts at $289 for that version of the Chromebook. For those looking to grab the 15-inch model, pricing starts at $429 with sales starting in October. Notably, that’s a considerable gap in price compared to Lenovo’s other 15-inch Chromebook, the C630.
