Lenovo ThinkPad X131e 11.6” Chromebook with Case (Scratch & Dent)
Designed to withstand the busy lifestyle of students and on-the-go professionals, this laptop features sturdy hinges, Lenovo’s Active Protection System for shock absorption, and a keyboard that resists spills. It also easily syncs with your existing Google account, offering seamless integration and access to your files wherever you go.
Cloud-Based Chrome OS
This Chromebook can forego the components that make most laptops bulky and heavy, thanks to its web-based Chrome OS. Rather than store applications and files on a built-in hard drive, Chrome syncs with your pre-existing Google account to store everything, from documents and spreadsheets to MP3 files and video, entirely online. This system not only saves space on your computer; it makes your files accessible from anywhere you can log into your Google account, such as your smartphone.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.

The Lenovo brand name may only be about a decade old, but the company can trace itself to one of the most important technological advances in history: the advent of the personal computer. In 1981, IBM released its first PC, one that would soon set the standard for personal computing around the world. But in the early 2000s, IBM was ready to focus on other types of products, and so Lenovo—a Hong Kong company formed in the mid-1980s—stepped in and bought IBM’s personal computer division, including the iconic Thinkpad. Lenovo’s reach hasn’t stopped with PCs: the company is now a top producer of smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and servers.
