Pro Solid keyboard and large touchpad

Con Only comes with 16GB SSD
The ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook only comes with 16GB for its storage.
Con Thick and heavy
With a reinforced body design the ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook is heavy and pretty thick, making for something not as portable as other Chromebooks.
Con Includes a fan
Even though the ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook is using a Baytrail processor (a processor designed to run without a fan) it does include a fan inside of the unit, which means moving parts and noise. Though it is reported that the fan is pretty quiet.
Con Currently no support replacing Chrome OS with Linux
Chromebooks that are using the newer Intel Bay Trail processors (such as the ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook) are still unable to install Linux, replacing Chrome OS on the hard drive due to the imitation of SeaBios lacking support for the eMMC used with said processors.
This however does not affect installing Ubuntu through Crouton.
