CPU Benchmarks
Note Price Reduction!

This is the same model that has been on Woot several times. Look at the comments from previous listings. I have one from a previous listing. Like it except the screen resolution is horrible as has been commented on. Okay if using for a couple minutes. Great for quick look while traveling. NOT good for extended use!

Lenovo don’t make it easy to find but here’s the user guide.

I’ve had one for a couple years. I find the resolution to be fine. It’s a low cost, 13" net surfing machine…and little else. The resolution is fine for it’s intended use and it’s very good at what it does. You make it sound like your family is gonna be gathered around watching HD movies on the thing. Ridiculous.

Is the resolution any better if you plug it into an external monitor using USB-C Alternate Mode? Does this even support USB-C Alternate Mode to plug in an external monitor?

UPDATE: the User Manual linked above (thanks, TalismanUK!) states that USB-C to HDMI and USB-C to VGA work. Has anyone had success with USB-C to DisplayPort?

Can ChromeOS PCs use the google play store for android apps? Or does ChromeOS have its own “Google Play store”? Also, any comparisons between android OS and this would be helpful.

ChromeOS has its own Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps). Some Chromebooks will gain the ability to access the Google Play Store and run Android apps in the future. (Some even have that ability now.) This particular chromebook will gain this ability in the future, although there’s no firm date yet: https://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/chrome-os-systems-supporting-android-apps.

UPDATE2: I obviously haven’t tried every single USB-C to DisplayPort adapter on the market, but the one I tried does not work. It appears that either ChromeOS or this particular Chromebook lacks USB-C AlternateMode specifically for DisplayPort. The user manual suggests that VGA and HDMI should work fine.
