Review: Lenovo’s ThinkPad 13 Chromebook is sturdy, but under-specced & overpriced

http://flip.it/Tm4WYw
We’ve seen a lot of great Chromebooks over the past several months, but one of the more interesting has been Lenovo’s new ThinkPad 13. With the promise of durability and performance, this new optio…

Is there an app ( downloadable or in a website) that lets us build sprites/simple graphics, from zeros and ones?

So many computer languages today are high-level. I want to show students how computers translate binary into something more complex.

Which side do you fall on? For me, it's with the convertibles.

It's official. 'Kevin' will be a convertible, not a detachable tablet. Thoughts?

Nice looking
 
Look what I found! Special Edition Chromebook!

I think I have stumbled across a "Lotus Gold" colored Asus C201, and it is on sale too. Now only $179.99 and Adorama Camera is also throwing in a free sleeve as well.

The Asus C201 is powered by a Rockchip RK3288 1.8GHz processor, has 4GB of RAM and 16 GB of eMMC of storage. Seems to be the same as the original model, spec wise, just in a special cool color.

You can check out more specs and details on this new device over on Adorama Camera.

Nice new device from Asus
 
New Chromebook with 15 hours battery life!

Asus now has the All-New C301SA listed on it's website. Asus claims up to 15 hours of battery life. That's insane. The site shows that colors offered will be "hot red", "fresh blue", or cool black.

Asus shows that there are going to be a choice of 3 processors:

Intel® Pentium® Quad-Core N3710 Processor
Intel® Celeron® Quad-Core N3160 Processor
Intel® Celeron® Dual-Core N3060 Processor

It looks like all versions will come with 4GB of RAM. Up to 64GB of eMMC storage will be offered. Pricing will start at $299.

You can check out more details over on the Asus website:

What will the new Acer R13 Chromebook look like?

Could it look anything like it's Windows counterpart? All we know so far is that it may be powered by a MediaTek processor, have 4GB of RAM and a Full HD screen. While we have no images of the new device, one thing we do have is a Windows version R13.

The Acer Aspire (Win version) R13 is pictured below. Per Acer:

Acer's patented Ezel Aero Hinge™ is an innovative solution that enables graceful and efficient transition between the R13’s six user modes. With the Ezel™ hinge, you can rotate or spin to virtually any angle you desire.

The Aspire R13 also has Full USB 3.1 Type-C support, including Thunderbolt™ 3. Acer claims this port allows data transfers at up to 8 times that of USB 3.0.

Will we see either of these two features in the R13 Chromebook? What would you like to see in the possible upcoming device?

You can see more details and images of the Aspire R11 here:

I have not had hands-on with this device. At first glance I don't care for it. But, if they make a Chromebook counterpart, I would certainly like to give it a try.

There have been a few rumors in this group about "Kevin" but nothing official. For a quick summary, see Robby Payne's blog: http://chromeunboxed.com/category/preview/

Perhaps some new models will get mentioned at the IFA trade show in early September. Or maybe after Chrome OS 53 moves to the Stable channel (by mid-September).
