Lenovo Quietly Releases AMD-Powered Chromebook S345

When Lenovo launched three new Intel-powered Chromebooks recently, the company didn’t mention that there would be a fourth model powered by an AMD processor.  But it looks like the company went ahead and released one anyway, because a new Lenovo Chromebook S345-14 with an AMD A6-9220 processor and a 14 inch touchscreen display, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage for $329.

That’s not a bad price for a laptop with an aluminum body, a full HD touchscreen display, and a 180-degree hinge… although AMD’s A6-9220 processor with Radeon R5 graphics isn’t exactly a speed demon.As noted by About Chromebooks, it looks like Lenovo may also offer cheaper models with an AMD A4-9120 processor and Radeon R4 graphics.

Weighing about 3.3 pounds and measuring about 0.7 inches thick.  Other features appear to be pretty much the same including the 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 180-degree hinge, two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports, two USB 3.1 Type-A Gen 1 ports, microSD card reader and headset jack.
