Lenovo's sub-$200 laptop runs Google's Chrome OS. Let's take a closer look.
Lenovo 100S Chromebook
Chromebooks are cheap, web-centric devices, keeping you connected with a minimum of fuss. The Lenovo 100S Chromebook fits this description perfectly. It's got a comfortable keyboard, runs Google's Chrome OS, and costs $199 (approximately £138 or AU$282).
Unfortunately, competitors with an identical price run Windows 10, a far more flexible operating system.
The keyboard is roomy, so fingers won't feel cramped, and the keys offer a nice amount of feedback and depth with every press -- no typing mistakes here. The keyboard isn't backlit, but there's no chance it would be at this price.
There's an SD card slot on the side for importing files and photos, but I'd recommend using it for a bit of extra storage -- the Chromebook only has 32GB of storage. There's also an HDMI output port, and a USB 3.0 port.
The 100S Chromebook's 11.6-inch display has a 1,366-by-768 pixel resolution. It does a fair job with color accuracy, but the contrast starts to degrade noticeably when viewed off-axis. It's also not a touchscreen.
