The white blizzard color of Lenovo Chromebook C330 reminds us of vanilla ice cream. This color though easily shows scratches and dirt so you have to make sure to put it in a case. The Lenovo Chromebook C330 is 0.8 inches thick and 2.8 pounds, it is heavier than Acer Chromebook. It may look cheap because it is made of plastic. Stability is another question as it has 4 different modes – laptop, stand, tablet, and display. It does have an HDMI port which is quite rare. Also included on the left side are USB Type-C Port for charging, USB 3.0 and SD Memory Reader. On the right side are headphone jack, security lock, power and volume button.
You might be used to better color or brightness, so you might feel that the Lenovo Chromebook does not level to your liking. It has an 11.6 screen, with HD IS Touch Display and 1366 x 768 resolution.
You don’t get much multitasking ability from the MediaTek MT8173C processor with 4GB of RAM. You can keep a lot of tabs open in Chrome and run a few Android apps without running out of memory, but you’ll find things to be rather sluggish no matter what you’re doing. At least the 32GB of eMMC storage won’t make things any slower. That’s a quad-core CPU running at 2.0GHz, and it’s just barely fast enough to keep up with the lightweight Chrome OS for basic productivity tasks.
There are 45 watt-hours of battery capacity tucked away inside the Chromebook C330’s chassis, and Chrome OS is a lightweight operating system. Given the low-power CPU and the small, low-resolution display, we thought the 2-in-1 should get great battery life.
“For the price, this is a great Chromebook. It checks a lot of boxes and I’ve done my fair share of research.
1. Solid build. Nice sturdy plastic chassis. (Keeps it lightweight)
2. USB type C port, SD card slot, HDMI, and USB 3.0
3. Touchscreen with an IPS display
4. 4 gigs of RAM and 64gig of storage. (rare at this price point)
5. Nice feel to the keyboard and track pad.
6. ARM processor that is optimized for the Google play store apps and runs much better than the Intel celerons you see in most low-end Chromebooks.
You get a lot for $300. You can’t really find those options within that price range. The only thing I wish it had was a FHD display. 1366×768 still looks sharp on an 11.6 in screen but it would be super sharp if it was 1080p. I would highly recommend this Chromebook.” – user Hngo with a 5-star rating on Amazon
“Over the period of 30-60 seconds after unboxing it for the first time.
1. Turn on
2. Sign in with your Google account.
3. Select wifi network.
That’s it, everything is set up, all your Google pictures, mail, bookmarks (from your Android phone, assuming you use chrome on mobile) is all there.
I’m used to spending at least a few hours setting up, updating, uninstalling bloatware, denying “trial offers” on Windows PCs. Nothing on this.
Literally ready for use within a minute.
Windows®, take notes.” – user Finnigan with a 5-star rating on Amazon
“Do NOT buy this if you will need to download apps as the Google Play Store app can’t be downloaded on this chrome book. Internet and everything else works fine, but I bought this for my kids to play Roblox and other apps, but this particular chrome book won’t allow the Google Play store.
I had no idea that it was even possible for the Google App Store not to be compatible with a Google Chrome Book!” – user Keith Gindoff with a 1-star rating on Amazon
“I am extremely impressed with this unit. Great price, and it works really well. Nicely designed, sturdy, the keyboard and trackpad are decent. Touchscreen works well. I would highly recommend it. One thing is incorrectly described in the specifications – it says there is a microSD card slot. It is actually a SD slot. I bought a microSD card hoping to put it in and have added storage space on the go, but an SD card sticks out a lot.” – user jrodshibuya with a 4-star rating on Amazon
