If you\u2019re looking for the best rugged laptop or perhaps the best chromebook but don\u2019t wanna spend a lot on it, the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11E is a fantastic option. It\u2019s a cheap and low-powered laptop best used for presentation purposes. Even though it has a rugged design, it still keeps a lot of flexibility of the Yoga series intact.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11E\r\nThe Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11E is an awesome rugged touch screen laptop that comes at a very enticing price. Yes, it won\u2019t compete with your average gaming laptop in terms of performance because it\u2019s not supposed to. It\u2019s excellent for educational and business purposes.\r\n\r\nPower & Performance\r\nTo be upfront from the very beginning, this is not a very powerful system at all. The quad core Intel Celeron N4100 inside, and the 4GB of RAM can only do so much. You should not pick up the ThinkPad Yoga 11E at all if you\u2019re going to do any kind of work that puts a heavy strain on the CPU\/GPU. At least it has a small 128GB SATA SSD as its boot drive for faster boot times and smooth operating system. If you really want a rugged laptop that can handle a heavy workload (e.g., video editing\/rendering), you\u2019re much better off with the Lenovo ThinkPad P52 instead.\r\nBattery\r\nYou can expect about 3 hours of average battery life out of the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11E. It\u2019s not much, really, as we were expecting way better results with its lower-end components and the 768p IPS display. The LG Gram series of laptops are widely regarded as the battery life champs, so in case you need great battery life, you can go for the LG Gram 17 as well.\r\nPorts & Expandability\r\nWell, you do get an expansive list of ports with this laptop. It includes a USB 3.1 Type C port, two full-sized USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports (one on the left and the other on the right side), an HDMI 1.4B port, an ethernet port, and a micro SD card reader. Yes, the HDMI 1.4B port can\u2019t do 4k at 60Hz, but fret not. The USB Type C port is capable of 4k 60Hz display output.\r\nBuild Quality\r\nThe ThinkPad Yoga 11E is built like a tank. The chassis is quality, and we\u2019ve already mentioned the rugged design. Even though the keyboard isn\u2019t backlit, it\u2019s a good quality tenkeyless keyboard that feels great to type on. The same goes for the trackpad too. Overall, it\u2019s a nice little package that is solidly built.\r\nValue\r\nFinding a rugged laptop like this below $1000 is pretty hard. And even though the display of the laptop is just 768p HD, it\u2019s an IPS display, so the viewing angles are going to be great. If you have the money to spend and want something better, the Panasonic Toughbook would be a better option.\r\nLenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11E Wrap Up\r\nConsidering everything, the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11E is a great little laptop for students and regular travelers alike. Small perks like Bluetooth 5.0, a great WiFi module, a good webcam, a great keyboard, and an excellent trackpad set it apart from the rest of the cheap laptops for us.
