The Lenovo 100E Chromebook 2 is a competent laptop for students (the e stands for education, after all). The same adjective we would use to characterize it when it doubles as a basic backup for your primary laptop applies here.
The producers of this Chromebook went to great efforts to make sure that it represents the fact that it was primarily created for educational purposes. Everything, from its sturdy build to its processing power (which is about adequate enough for academics and poor enough for serious gaming), virtually shouts this, making it difficult to ignore.
Even though it won’t accomplish things with any sense of finesse, the Lenovo 100E Chromebook will do common computer activities like word processing, online browsing, and video streaming rather effectively.

For greater game compatibility, you can install Linux programs, although we don’t anticipate many of the most recent games to be compatible.

Lenovo chose functionality over aesthetic appeal when choosing a design for this Chromebook, with the result that it simply looks the business without running any risk of winning any beauty contest. But that’s all right; heavyweight boxers are hardly the prettiest people on earth.

The Lenovo 100E Chromebook boasts a solid build. It simply has to, given the rough and tumble world its target buyers seem to live in.
