Lenovo Chromebook S330

Released in early 2019, the Lenovo Chromebook S330 was met with good reviews for being a very inexpensive Chromebook that has decent performance. Reviewers recommended it for entry-level users and kids who need to do online school work or play games. With updated support through June 2025, this Chromebook can be a great deal, especially if you find it on sale.

The base model comes with a decent, but not great, 14” display at a resolution of 1366x768 (720p, HD) but we highly recommend spending the extra money to upgrade to the higher resolution 1920x1080 (1080p, Full HD) screen. This model also doubles the onboard storage which will give you more space for games and documents.

The Lenovo Chromebook S330 features an ARM based MediaTek M8173C processor that delivers okay performance. There are obviously better processors on the market, but not many can be found in this price range. You’ll find all the standard ports on this Chromebook including USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, and an SD Card Reader.

We agree with the other reviewers out there that the Lenovo Chromebook S330 would make a nice entry-level Chromebook for kids, but don’t expect to be happy with it long-term if you’re using for everyday work. The screen quality and low specs may drive you nuts if this is your only computer, but your kids will probably love it for watching YouTube or playing Roblox!
