New Dual-mode Touchscreen Chromebook
New Dual-mode Touchscreen Chromebook

The Lenovo N20p Chromebook, officially announced this morning, has a touchscreen that can rotate 300 degrees into a backwards-facing "stand" mode. The idea is to give you the ability to tilt the system into a more slate-like setup -- a slate with a stand attached to its back, that is.
That might explain why Google's been stepping up its efforts to develop a virtual on-screen keyboard for Chrome OS. While that isn't something you'd ever really need on a more traditional touchscreen Chromebook like the Pixel, once you flip things around and put the keyboard out of reach, an on-screen option suddenly makes a lot of sense.

Touch and tiltability aside, the N20p's display is pretty standard for a low-priced Chromebook, at 11.6-in. and 1366 x 768 resolution. Nothing too noteworthy there.
The N20p Chromebook runs on a Haswell-based Intel Celeron N2830 processor -- a newer model than the Celeron 2955U chip that powers most of the recent Chrome OS devices, but how much that evolution actually matters is yet to be seen. Lenovo tells me the system that'll sell in the U.S. will include 2GB of RAM. (The company's press materials mention a 4GB version as well, but it's not yet clear where or when such a model might launch or how much it'd cost.)
