Lenovo released two tablets optimized for classroom use: the Lenovo 10w tablet, and the Lenovo 13w Yoga Clamshell. Both computers are made on low-cost hardware platforms, which ensures a great price/performance ratio.
The 329 10w tablet runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon7c platform. It has a 10.1-inch display and a price of $329 10. This tablet is ideal for basic computing tasks, with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB flash storage.
Attach the 10w to a keyboard and it will transform into a convertible clamshell laptop. This makes the laptop about twice as thick but is more productive.
Students can connect to virtual classes via the 2MP webcam. There’s also an 8MP back camera for sharing photos during live calls. This is a lot better than having a selfie webcam for most situations.
The $749 Lenovo 13w Yoga has a 1080p 13.3” display and is meant to be a bit more powerful, thanks to its AMD Ryzen 7 5000 U-Series processor platform.
The convertible PC is available with a 16GB or 512GB SSD. This is a very reasonable price for an educational laptop. If you wish to begin small, RAM and SSD can be easily upgraded by the user.
The Windows 11 SE OS is used by both laptops. This OS version is optimized for education environments and includes tighter app installation controls, full-screen app launches and administrative functions.
Lenovo also includes its NetFilter software. This security layer can block dangerous content based upon several heuristics, which are regularly updated. According to Lenovo, both computers will be available in April.
