Lenovo has unveiled a new Chromebook that has a cool trick that other devices on the market lack. That cool trick is a screen that can be folded into different positions. The machine is called the N20p and it is aimed at the education market where price is often the deciding factor when it comes to a purchase.




Lenovo's N20p Chromebook will sell for $329, a cheaper standard Chromebook called the N20 lacking the folding screen is offered for $279. That N20p is more like the Yoga line of tablets with a screen supporting 10 points of touch and a hinge that allows the screen to be folded backwards up to 300 degrees.


With the screen folded, the notebook can be used in stand mode for watching videos. As the Chromebook name implies, the N20p runs the Chrome OS and the processor under the hood is an Intel Pentium. Power comes from an internal battery good for up to eight hours per charge. Internal storage is 16GB and both these Chromebooks have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The N20p will be available in August with its N20 brother landing in July.
