ZDNET reviews editor Kerry Wan did hands-on testing of the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3i, and tapped this laptop as his top pick for students. Wan praised the Flex 3i for handling streaming, video meetings, and content creation with minimal risk of overheating or data bottleneck. With a starting price that sits well below $500, the Flex 3i is a great, budget-friendly option for elementary, high school, and even college students looking for a reliable laptop that won't break the bank. It's built with an Intel Celeron N4500 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage across an eMMC drive and SD card. And since this laptop uses ChromeOS, you'll be able to sync your files to Google Drive or other cloud storage services to free up local drive space for documents, files, and photos.
The 15.6-inch display gives you 1080p resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate for smoother playback; and you can connect up to two external displays via USB-C for more room to multitask while researching school projects. And with a battery life of up to 10 hours, students will be able to use their laptops the entire school day before they need to think about recharging.
