This is my first Chromebook, and I've been using it for two days. The battery life is amazing so far; it does appear to be 10 hours. Reading the reviews, it seems like a wide range of experiences, and I feel fortunate that mine works well so far. It was very easy to set up. I saw 11.5 in the description, but the actual display screen is 10 inches. It isn't a touch screen, and the keys are dark gray, not black. This was an impulse purchase after getting a new laptop a few days ago. My 6 year old Dell would work no longer, and I got an expensive gaming laptop. It was my second one, but I was not expecting it to get so hot, with a noisy fan. The battery life is about an hour. To feel more comfortable, I wanted a Chromebook for email, YouTube, and Amazon videos. So, this is doing what I want it to. I will likely get more used to having no delete key, instead the alt+backspace key is used for that function. I was surprised when my bookmark bar appeared with bookmarks from 2013 on. I've deleted many of them in the bookmark manager. My main dissatisfaction is the disappearing vertical scroll bar. In some emails, you can select "view in browser". I would be more frustrated if I didn't have the laptop available. There might be a fix for that; I haven't researched yet. I purchased mine when it was 52% off, which is worth it. Buying electronics is risky. I've been very disappointed in the past, which is why I'm relieved and accepting of the machine I got. Almost everything has become more expensive, and reasonable expectations seem to be in order. With two days use, I'm not regretting my purchase.

Chromebooks have a life cycle of 8 years - this one was made in 2020, so it has about 6 or so years of support left. I didn't care and all I wanted was something small and light so I could write on my bed. I don't mind that it's a chromebook - in fact, this is my first chromebook and I'm in love. I'm planning to get another one for Black Friday if the price is good enough, because I love this one so much (I[m planning to have an indoor chromebook and an outdoor chromebook). The screen is a bit iffy, but it's good enough. I use this one more than I do my $700 tablet. I don't do anything heavy with it, so this is perfect for my needs.

SUMMARY A surprisingly well-rounded and well equipped budget chromebook that doesn't get the attention it deserves. LEAD-UP TO THE PURCHASE Having recently given my Google Pixelbook to a friend who was in desperate need of a computer, I was in the market for another chromebook... just in time for Prime Day June 2021. I didn't need a powerhouse since I have learned firsthand that running Linux on a chromebook sounds better on paper than it does in real life use. The 2-in-1 form-factor was fun to tinker with but in practical day-to-day use, I found it better to use a dedicated Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S6) for touch and pen tasks. A traditional clamshell design would be fine for those "laptop-y" things... and an 11" or so screen would allow for a very portable device. PRIME DAY HUNTING With those requirements in mind, I went hunting in the Amazon (see what I did there? ;-) ) for a suitable chromebook. I found that most of the deals were for devices that had been released two or more years ago. A few other "deals" weren't any cheaper than the regular prices at other stores (for the same processor/RAM/storage configurations). I ran across the Lenovo Chromebook 3 (LCB3 for short) and it really intrigued me. Not only was it quite inexpensive, but it had a decent processor (Celeron N4020), decent storage (64GB), and more ports (2-USBC, 2 USBA 3.0, microSD card slot, and headphone/mic jack) than my old Google Pixelbook (2 USBC, headphone/mic jack). I watched some reviews on Youtube for this device and only one gave it a half-decent review. In spite of the lack of glowing reviews, I purchased it. UNBOXING AND USE When the LCB3 arrived and I opened the box, I was impressed with the look and feel of this chromebook. I don't have to qualify this comment with (...for a $170 chromebook). No, it is legitimately a good looking and feeling chromebook, period. The lid has a tasteful Lenovo branding plate on it and a section of the lid has a fine gray hash pattern stenciled on that gives it an interesting and attractive look. The screen is a matte screen... yes! I've always been a fan of matte screens (especially on Thinkpads) and although the reviewers complained that it wasn't a bright display, I found it to be just fine in the places I typically use a notebook-type device. The keyboard isn't the same as that found on Lenovo's other laptops, but it feels stable and quite acceptable for long typing sessions. The trackpad works well and is consistent. Battery life is extremely good. I haven't run it all the way down yet, but on multiple occasions, I've run it on battery mostly surfing and typing for 3-4 hours and the projected battery life remaining registered 10+ hours. I don't know how true that is, but I'll try to run it all the way down and update with the results. Performance is more than adequate. The combination of the Celeron N4020 and the lower screen resolution results in a very smooth and responsive experience. TAKE THE EXPERT REVIEWERS' OPINIONS WITH A GRAIN OF SALT Because expert reviewers have access to a wide variety of devices, (many of them high-end), they can have their perspectives skewed a bit. It's nothing personal against them, it's how we're all wired. That seems to be evident in their review and coverage of the LCB3. Lenovo has been "killing it" (in a good way) lately in the chromebook space. Their Chromebook Duet gets most of the attention, but this LCB3 is the hidden gem in their recently released chromebooks. I've owned the older Lenovo ThinkPad chromebooks in the past, but the LCB3 feels more like a ThinkPad than those officially branded ThinkPad chromebooks were. I'm baffled as to why expert reviewers haven't given this device more attention. I was initially concerned about how well the few Android apps I rely on would work on a non-touchscreen chromebook, but so far, they work as expected. I'm delighted with the LCB3 and it will fit nicely with how I use my chromebooks. I hope this is helpful to those who are considering purchasing the Chromebook 3.

My job is entirely Google based. I bought this as a second work computer because my company laptop is a Thinkpad and it's heavy. I just wanted to leave that at home and have a nice sleek backup for any work tasks I'd need to do in a pinch out of the house. I couldn't be more pleased with this. It's light, fast, and the battery life is fantastic. Lenovos are known for having great keyboards and this is the best one I've used on a small laptop. It also doesn't look or feel cheap. The only thing that shows 'budget' is the screen, as it won't blow you away. But it's still very solid and surprisingly good from the side, where most screens in this price range are garbage viewed from an angle. If you are in the market for a laptop, and you are in the probably 95% of the public that absolutely doesn't really need an $800 laptop for what they use it for, rush out and buy this one while the price is still insane.

This Chromebook is perfect for a person who wants a small, portable Chromebook. It works great and the price makes it 100% worth it. The screen size is big enough but not bulky and it seems fast and reliable.
