Lenovo Chromebook C340 (11.6")

$300 at Walmart
$309 at Lenovo

$320 at Amazon

The best Chromebook just got better.

With double the USB ports and 8GB models on the horizon, Lenovo's aluminum-lidded laptop is more than a pretty face.

Lenovo Chromebook C340 (11.6") Features

11.6-inch 10-point IPS touchscreen
Aluminum lid, plastic body
Intel Celeron N4000
4-8GB RAM, 32-64GB storage
Up to 10-hour battery life
Pretty pink or silver color options

While last year's C330 skimped on ports, the Lenovo Chromebook C340 (also known as the C340-11) features a USB-A and USB-C port on each side of the machine, larger volume and power buttons, and swaps the full-size SD slot for a more compact and widely-used microSD. This new model is also slated for almost seven years of Chrome OS updates.

This Chromebook has proven very, very popular over the short months it's been available: Amazon can rarely keep 64GB models in stock — especially the alluring Sand Pink version — and most other retailers sell out just as quickly with the 32GB models. If you can find a C340-11, especially a 64GB model, don't wait too long: blink and they'll be gone.

The C340-11 has been out for almost six months now, and it's worked like a champ so far, lasting over nine hours on a single charge and holding up with over a dozen tabs open. The bezels around the screen are large, but they come in handy when you flip it over into tablet mode, and the keyboard is easy to type on for hours at a time.
