Featuring two distinct features; a 300 degrees hinge and an 11.6-inch 10-point touchscreen
Upon first look, Lenovo's new N20p might just appear to be a regular compact Chromebook, however it is offering two distinct features which make it stand out from the rest of the offerings in the market. Firstly, the N20p has an 11.6-inch display which is a 10-point touchscreen which is quite impressive and is a display enhancement that only the Acer C270P offers in this size class. Secondly, the hinge on the Chromebook can rotate up to 300 degrees which allows the device to be propped up in a straight position. It is the very first time that this hinge feature has appeared on a Chromebook and this is what makes it distinctive.
However, this hinge should not be mistaken for a 360 degrees rotation. This means that the N20p can't fold over completely on itself, like Lenovo's Yoga 2 Pro but it rotates enough to make it flexible enough for watching movies and playing games. The N20p also has another variant, the N20 which is cheaper and a little plainer but both these are Lenovo's first Chromebooks aimed at the consumer market. This is a good change because it had been a really long time since Lenovo had been providing to schools only.
With so many 11-inch Chromebooks present in the market, the plainer N20 seems to be very boring and is no different than the other offerings in the market. It will be priced at $279 when it starts to sell in June. The N20p, with its more distinct and interesting features, will be selling off for $329 in August.
