The device is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60T processor along with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage on the top-tier model. There’s also a 7,180 mAh battery within, an 8 MP camera on the back, and a 2 MP camera on the front.
On the other hand, Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook is a more traditional and neat looking 13.3-inch 2-in-1 with up to an Intel i5 processor, a water-resistant backlit keyboard, and a starting price of $360. There’s also support for styluses on the device, which is always nice to have.

This is paired with 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and up to a 128 GB PCIe SSD. Lenovo claims the battery will last up to 10 hours. The Flex 5 Chromebook also supports WiFi 6 and charges via a USB-C port.
