Lenovo’s rugged Chromebooks for schools make note taking a breeze

Lenovo has a new trio of Chromebooks, all of which are designed to be used and abused in schools.

Featuring reinforced hinges, ports, and keyboards, and capable of withstanding 30-inch drops, they’re the very essence of ruggedized technology.

And to my sentimental eyes, they look like a throwback to the good old days of Asus Eee PC netbooks from a decade ago.

Starting off with the most basic 100e Chromebook, which costs $219, Lenovo gives you an awesome little keyboard with plenty of key travel and zero typing fatigue.

That’s tied to an 11.6-inch screen that has a resolution of 1336 x 768 and frankly atrocious viewing angles.

I’d highly recommend stepping up to the $279 300e Chromebook, which adds touch, a much improved display, and a Yoga-style 360-degree hinge.
