$298 $350 at Amazon

This laptop features a 10-point touchscreen IPS display with integrated graphics for easy viewing in all modes. At an inch thin and weighing 2.6 lbs, it's also sleek and easy to carry between classes.

It comes equipped with a MediaTek MT8173C processor, MMC storage, DDR3 memory and 64 GB, and automatically updates to the latest Chrome system. The two in one design also works as both a laptop and a tablet when you need it.

Backed by a 4.5-star average rating, Amazon shoppers have plenty to say about this affordable Chromebook.

'Excellent value!'

One shopper raved that this laptop "works perfectly" for their two kids at school, and that it opens web pages with "no delay."

The same reviewer calls the Lenovo C330 "excellent value" that holds up to kids' "rough handling."

'Great quality for the price'

Another shopper says that the laptop is "great quality for the price," and despite being lightweight, it's still "sturdy and durable."

However, they do note that the white colour does tend to show dirt, scratches, and other signs of wear easily.

'Mega tablet on a mini laptop'

Another reviewer notes that the laptop is "nice quality for what it is," — which they say is "a mega tablet on a mini laptop."

On the downside, the same reviewer notes that the Lenovo C330 can't run full Windows OS offline, like a traditional PC does.

"I wish it could be improved to balance its offline utility," they noted.

'Pretty d— good for the price'

“Actually love this thing," raved one reviewer, saying that it replaced their old laptop.

However, they did note "only one negative," — screen resolution is reportedly "not the best."

Verdict

For an affordable laptop that stands up to all your daily needs, the Lenovo Chromebook C330 2-in-1 Convertible Laptop is a solid choice. As reviewers have noted, the screen resolution and exterior construction may not be the same as more expensive versions, but for under $300, it's a great compromise when it comes to value and price.
