Lenovo Chromebook C340 and S340 offer USB-C on a budget

Lenovo has taken the wraps off its new C340 and S340 Chromebooks, both offering consumers Google’s Chrome OS alongside stylish ultrabook designs. The two new models will arrive in September with very low starting prices, the C340 being notable for its 11-inch size option and convertible design, the S340 for its larger size and dark aesthetic. The C340 and S340 join Lenovo’s new business notebooks, tablets, and more.

The new Lenovo Chromebook C340 is a convertible Chrome OS laptop offered in 11-inch and 15-inch sizes. The smaller of the two models features up to an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB eMMC storage; the larger model, meanwhile, offers up to an Intel Core i3-8130U processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB eMMC storage.

Both models sport a pair of 2W stereo speakers and up to 10 hours of battery life, as well as 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, two USB-C ports, a microSD card slot, and an audio combo jack. The 11-inch model features two USB-A 3.1 ports and the 15-inch model features a single USB-A 3.1 port.
