The HP Chromebook X2 is a good tablet and a great Chromebook, but I’ve been rocking the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C330 for the last week and this little things just zips along. Even with 8-10 tabs open in Chrome and near constant use, the C330 still had over 30% battery left after 12 hours of meetings, seminars, and Reddit browsing, although there are certainly cheaper options.
