More thoughts on the Lenovo N21 as I move past the first day. One charge of the battery took it all the way from late afternoon to the noon of the next day with 25% left. That is impressive. I heard the Intel N2840 might even be better than the N2830 on battery life and that won't surprise me.
I spent some of my night watching videos and trolling forums with my N21. After comparing it with my Acer C720, the screen is somewhat brighter and a slightly different color balance, but I'm still convinced they are somewhat the same part with some batch improvements. Comparing it to my X131e and my Dell 11, the two are superior over the N21 when it comes to the screen. However, the screen is more than workable for hours of browsing and video.
There is some slight creak on the body around the sides, probably because it is plastic, but overall it seems to have less creak and flex than my Toshiba CB2 or my C720. The keyboard I got used to and can type fast with it, but it feels more like the keyboard on the Acer C910 than my Thinkpad X131e. Doesn't have the smoothness and snap of my C720 and C910, but the processor feels way ahead from what I remember of my departed Samsung 303 and my Sandy Trail C710. Given its shape, its lightness, the ease it slips into a bag, I would appoint it next time as my travel computer when I go abroad. In the meantime its going to my office, next to my X131e, and its about time to take my C710 out of commission. The old C710 still performs decently, but battery life is such that, even with a fresh charge, a lunch session with it loses 50% of the battery. My X131e has a better screen, much better keyboard, about equal battery life, superior build quality but its trackpad sucks compared to this and is considerably bulkier and heavier.
In conclusion, this isn't the best of the 11.6" Chromebooks. I will probably give that to the first generation Dell, due to its remarkable balance of different qualities. The N21 is kind of mediocre if not average in a growing field of Chromebooks. But I feel its a keeper, due to a friendly design, easy to grip textures, easy to hold light weight, easy on the bag, adequate performance and good battery life.
