Though it hasn't made a ton of Chromebooks in the past, Lenovo unveiled its latest Chromebook model coinciding with the IFA conference in Berlin. The Chromebook 100S is a lower-end model starting at just $179, coming in at 2.6 pounds with an 11.6-inch HD display, Intel N2840 processor, up to 4GB of RAM and up to 32GB of on-board storage. There's a standard assortment of ports, and Lenovo is claiming eight hours of battery life.
The Chromebook 100S doesn't have much design flair (matching the basic specs inside), but looks thick and tough enough to take some beating, which can't always be said about every laptop this size. Lenovo will begin selling the new Chromebook 100S in October at the aforementioned $179 starting price, though you should expect to pay a tad more to get the higher memory and storage options for the best experience.

For those times when you just want to get on the web quickly to answer emails or look something up, the Lenovo Chromebook 100S arrives at $179, Lenovo's most affordable Chromebook ever.

The Intel Intel™ BayTrail-M processor ups the ante in terms of horsepower handling multiple audio and video streams with aplomb and while great for anyone on a budget the system maintains a solid durable construction that protects against dents, bumps and scratches. There's a beautiful simplicity there, especially since the web browser monopolizes so much of what most people do day-to-day on their PC.
