The Chinese laptop and PC manufacturer Lenovo has launched the latest Hybrid Chromebook for the User’s. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is one of the latest and hybrid Chromebook of the ThinkPad series. The Yoga 11e was designed for classroom use, and is built to take a bit of a beating which means it is not like as stylished laptops. It is a convertible Chromebook, so user can use this device  as a Tablet also.


The ThinkPad Yoga 11e has a 11.6 inch HD IPS LCD Anti-glare display which offered a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. This latest is empowered by Intel Celeron N2930 Processor which is coupled with 4 GB of RAM. It has 16 GB eMMC SD card expandable storage which is good. It also has a HD web camera which is good video calls and Google hangouts.

Chrome OS in tablet mode isn’t an ideal experience. For starters, the OS isn’t fully optimized for touch, and neither is the web. For things  which are mainly like working in the Google Docs or writing a Chromebook  you will want to use the standard laptop mode. The Yoga 11e is built tough, and while the convertible tablet mode may not be super useful right now, it very well may be a must have in future versions. And personally, I wouldn’t buy into a model without a touch screen at this point.

And the battery backup of the Smartphone is not up to the mark, this time Lenovo not  able to fullfil its promise, which is very disappointing at this stage.
