The IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook is powered by the 12th generation Intel Core processors with 8GB of DDR4 memory. It packs a 16-inch 16:10 120Hz refresh rate display. Unlike most Chromebooks that have very limited storage, the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook comes with 128GB eMMC storage plus an M.2 NVMe SSD of up to 512GB. To complete the gaming notebook look, the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook comes with an RGB-lit keyboard.

Designed for gaming but built to support the work and school needs of everyday life, the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook offers effortless portability when needed with the productivity essentials to get more done. Sleek and stylish with an anodized aluminum top cover, this thin yet sturdy 16-inch laptop weighs just over four pounds (1.82kg), enabling on-the-go mobility that will turn heads when out and about. With up to 11 hours of battery life, 8GB of memory with a spacious PCIe SSD card, and an FHD webcam with an integrated privacy shutter, this device can be easily adapted for work, study, and play. Any increased screen time won’t be an issue because of its low blue light-emitting panel, certified by TÜV Rheinland, that minimizes eye strain and fatigue.
