<p style="text-align: center"><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/DSC00880.jpg" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-528494" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/DSC00880-728x485.jpg" alt="" width="668" height="445" /></a></p> <p>High-end Chromebooks have been attracting all the news recently, but it's products like this, Lenovo's C330, that bring the platform to its roots.
