If you are looking for an alternative to Windows or macOS laptops for work or study, then Chromebooks are your choice. And now may be the best opportunity to get yourself such a laptop. Because in honor of Black Friday, there is a significant discount on a mid-range Lenovo Chromebook, IdeaPad Flex 5i, now on sale at a bargain price.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i is now on sale for $329, which is a $100 discount compared to the original price of $430. This discount is available on Amazon’s online store. This laptop has on board an Intel Core i3-1115G4 processor, a 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. For connectivity, there’s Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, two USB Type-C ports (through which the laptop also charges), USB Type-C, a combined headphone/microphone jack, and a microSD card slot.
Also, an advantage of this laptop is that it’s designed with a 2-in-1 design, so you can slide the screen back into tent mode (perfect for watching movies) or back to the keyboard to turn it into a giant tablet. It’s also reported that this laptop will receive Chrome OS updates until June 2030.
This laptop is suitable for undemanding tasks and study or work. Among its disadvantages is the small amount of RAM, as the laptop can be sluggish when you open many tabs or simultaneous applications. Nevertheless, there’s a lot to like if you’re in the market for a Chromebook.
