Lenovo Back to School Sale: Chromebooks
Chromebooks aren't right for every student, but for those who can use them, they're among the best deals you can find. They're easy to use, so even the youngest students can operate them. They're lightweight and run a long time on battery power, so they're great for on-the-go students with fast paced schedules. Best of all, lots of our Chromebooks are discounted at the Lenovo Back to School Sale.
Whether a Chromebook is a good option for you depends on a few factors. First, you need a reliable internet connection, since Chromebooks do much of their work via the cloud. Second, you can't be a pack rat, since onboard storage is limited as a way to keep Chromebooks slim and light. Third, advanced students likely can't rely on solely on a Chromebook, since they don't run the most demanding software.
Before buying, it's best to ask your school if a Chromebook will work for you or you student. Then, once you know for sure, check out the great deals at our Back to School Chromebook Sale. With great prices and a wide selection, it's a smart way to start the new school year.

Can a student use a Chromebook for school?
Are chromebooks good for students? The short answer is yes, a Chromebook can be used by students of all ages – elementary school, high school, even college. They're especially good for younger students, but can work for those in higher grades, too – depending on what they're studying. The critical factors are whether the student has steady access to the internet, how much storage space they need, and which software applications they use for their course of study.
Chromebooks can run for extended periods on battery because they use the minimalist Chrome operating system and most of the work is performed through the Chrome browser (with the aid of cloud-based apps for word processing, spreadsheets, etc.). So the system itself does fewer things using onboard resources. Chromebooks are also lightweight and very slim, in part because they have smaller storage drives – users are encouraged to save files to the cloud.
This limited storage and reliance on the cloud, however, means that Chromebooks aren't right for everyone. First, a steady internet connection is essential to using a Chromebook. In most areas, this isn't a problem – but for some users, it is. Likewise, the small storage drives on Chromebooks make them ill-suited for users who plan to save lots of personal files, games and such. In addition, many of the most demanding software applications aren't available through the cloud, so students taking advanced courses in engineering, mathematics, and so on should choose regular laptops.
Only you, or the student your buying for, can determine if a Chromebook from Lenovo will fit your needs. You can also ask your school – most of them publish minimum requirements for PCs that will support their classes and required software. But one thing's for sure: you'll find great deals at our annual Back to School Chromebook Sale.
