There are not too many people who want to get in touch with Chrome OS for some reasons. You have to know that this operating system might be not that good if you are a designer who wants to always get in touch with Photoshop, but it should be more than enough if you area student who only uses laptop for editing documents and multimedia. It has everything needed for doing those cases especially now we are able to run and install any Android app into the system. It feels like we get two different systems into one device.
One of the best approaches for this case is Ideapad N420. The specification is quite good and it has of tremendous of battery life. You do not have to carry around the charger since the battery could last for a day without any charge. So, is the machine worth enough for the price? You are going to find it soon. We are going to see it deeper, so you can make the consideration about it. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
As for the design, there is not much to talk about it since the look is simple and really similar to what see in similar products. The entire body it’s made from plastic that luckily does not look cheap at all and the build quality is as good as expect. The material is also not too slippy and I did not have any problem on holding it with my single hand. The overall quality for design is great.
The laptop features of full size keyboard that amazingly deliver a good experience on typing. I was easily able to type for more than 85 words per minute and the result is even better when I get used with the keyboard. The same case is also happened to the touchpad that quickly respond to our swipe. The touchpad is wide enough and I guess you are not going to have any problem on navigating through the system.back to menu ↑
One of biggest pros that it has here is the Chrome OS. Chrome is basically quite new operating system that introduced by Google for desktop purpose. The system based on Linux and runs smoothly even on the low specifications. I have tried to compare two different machines with Windows and Chrome and I found that the laptop with Chrome performs better performance in many aspects.
For example, I streamed an HD on Youtube and I was able to scroll the screen during the video smoothly without any issue. I usually got some lags while doing these things on Windows and I was so surprised of this result. Another result is also happened on editing documents and even browsing through the internet. Looks like Intel N3060 and 4GB RAM is good enough on maintaining the stable performance.

Storage And Battery Life
Storage is probably the biggest issue here where it only comes with 16GB of memory. I am not able to install many applications and micro SD slot is nowhere to find here. But, everything will be done here is basically saved through the cloud and I think you will not have any problem with it. Google offered you a big storage in Google Drive, so use that place for storing the data.
You should be thankful with its battery life since we can easily perform our work in a day without needed to worry about the battery life. During my test, I always get similar result with around 9 hours and 30 minutes battery with heavy usage on browsing and editing documents. The result is even better if you rarely touch and will last for even a day. If you are a student who needs to bring it into your school, you should not be worry with the battery.back to menu ↑
Those are information I know about it. I have to say that I am so satisfied by its performance and batter life. I never expect that this thing would be that good. I recommend it for many people who are searching alternative for Windows that has poor performance in battery life. It backs on you on deciding it, so feel free to make any choice. I just hope the information is good enough for you. At last, thank you for reading the article and please leave any comment for any assistance regarding this article.
