Lenovo is the latest to join the mainstream Chromebook fray, revealing not just one but two devices: the Lenovo N20 and N20p.

Both weighing less than 1.4kg, the Lenovo N20 and N20p comes equipped with an Intel Celeron processor, integrated graphics, and 11.6 display with 1366×768 HD resolution. There’s 16GB of onboard storage, supplemented by up to 100GB of cloud storage via Google Drive. Both laptops can last up to 8 hours of mixed usage.

Indeed, both models are almost the same, with the Lenovo N20p’s touch-enabled display as the only one of two differences between them. Then again, such 10-point touchscreen is arguably a niche feature in an OS that’s more friendly to the mouse and keyboard.

And yet then again, Lenovo has to put something unique to its products, or they’ll simply become like other unremarkable Chromebooks out there. As such, the Lenovo N20p has also taken a leaf out of the Lenovo Yoga‘s book and sports a hinge that rotates up to 300 degrees. That doesn’t turn it into a tablet hybrid, but the flexibility allows for stand mode (image below).

The Lenovo N20 will start selling in July for $279, while the N20p won’t arrive until August for $329.
