For students, Lenovo created a $329 Windows 11 tablet with Snapdragon

Lenovo suggests the Snapdragon platform will help deliver responsive performance, dependable WiFi connectivity and an extended battery life. The ARM-based Windows experience hasn’t historically been great, but we haven’t seen Windows 11 running on Snapdragon 7c chipsets as yet. Microsoft has seemingly improved the Windows-on-ARM experience, however. The 10w Tablet and keyboard bundle starts at $329 and it’s expected to ship in the US in April. For (perhaps older) students who need extra power, Lenovo is also planning to ship the 13w Yoga convertible laptop in April. The system is powered by an AMD Ryzen 5000 U-series processor with on-chip graphics.

Lenovo has unveiled its latest batch of student-oriented products. A Snapdragon 7c-powered Windows 11 tablet is perhaps the most eye-catching offering. The 10w Tablet has a durable design with a rubber bumper and Corning Gorilla Glass on the Full HD, 10.1-inch display, according to the firm, making it a good choice for younger pupils. The display has a 16:10 aspect ratio and a brightness of 400 nits. There are also 2MP and 8MP front-facing and rear-facing cameras. The tablet comes with a detachable keyboard and a pen that may be purchased separately. The 10w Tablet includes a 30Whr battery and up to 8GB LPDDR4x RAM, as well as up to 128GB eMMC storage. There is only one USB-C port, but there is a headphone jack.

The laptop has a 13.3-inch, Full HD display with 300 nits of brightness. The front-facing 1080p camera has a privacy shutter and you’ll find a 5MP camera on the rear. There’s an optional fingerprint reader on the power button too. The 13w Yoga includes up to 16GB of 3200Mhz DDR4 RAM (which users can upgrade) and up to a 512GB SSD. Lenovo says it has Dolby Audio and a 51Whr battery. The connectivity options are far more generous than on the 10w Tablet. Along with an audio jack, there are two USB-C 3.2 ports, one USB-A 3.2 port, a full SD card reader and HDMI 2.0. There’s WiFi 6 and optional 4G LTE support as well. The 13w Yoga will start at $749.

In addition, Lenovo announced a partnership with VictoryXR to offer educational experiences in virtual reality. Students will be able to access more than 60 VR titles from VictoryXR, centered around science, history and career and technical education. They’ll be able to virtually visit the likes of The Great Wall of China and see California Redwoods.
