Google's Chromebook computers continue to make headway, getting a boost Thursday from Lenovo, which announced its own Google-powered device for students.
The Chinese computer maker said it will begin to sell the ThinkPad X131e Chromebook to schools starting Feb. 26.
Lenovo said the $429 laptop is built with a rugged exterior designed for durability. The ThinkPad X131e features an 11.6-inch HD LED display, three USB ports, a webcam and "battery life for the entire school day." The machine weighs less than four pounds, Lenovo said.
