Lenovo Chromebook 10e with rugged design and 8 years of ChromeOS updates goes official

Lenovo launched its IdeaPad Duet earlier this month at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. It seems that the brand has now launched a more rugged variant of the tablet called the Lenovo Chromebook 10e which is aimed at students. The latest Chrome OS tablet features water-resistant keys and rubber bumpers with MIL-STD-810G rating for durability. Moreover, the keyboard kickstand is now a case instead of the magnetic add-on as was the case for IdeaPad Duet. Let’s take a look at what the newest Chrome OS tablet from Lenovo offers in term of specifications and features.

Lenovo Chromebook 10e specifications and features

The Lenovo 10e ships with a 10.1-inch display that has been topped with a layer of Asahi Dragontrail Pro glass for protection against scratches and minor nicks. The display will flaunt universal stylus input support for students to work with. At its core, the Chromebook 10e gets the MediaTek Helio P60T chipset. The processor is further accompanied by up to 4GB LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB storage. There’s no word on whether the storage can be expanded.

In the imaging department, the Lenovo Chromebook 10e features an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front snapper. Lenovo has promised that just like the IdeaPad Duet, the latest tablet will also get automatic ChromeOS updates for eight years. Apart from these, the Chromebook 10e features a different design compared to the IdeaPad Duet. The included keyboard case also lacks a touchpad.

Lenovo Chromebook 10e pricing and availability

Lenovo has announced that the Chromebook 10e will be released in March 2020. The brand is expected to launch the latest Chromebook tablet at $269, which is roughly Rs 19,100.
