Lenovo wants to shake up the affordable notebook market by launching the cheapest Chromebook we’ve seen to date, according to sources in its supply chain. The Chinese company is said to be targeting a price tag under $170, and it will turn to budget processors in order to keep costs low.

Motorola may have chosen to bow out of the tablet market for the time being, but new owner Lenovo won’t let it rest for too long.

Could the Cupertino company have done a better job?
