Hardware, Embedded Systems "Meet the new ThinkPad X131e Chromebook: A fast booting, highly customizable laptop PC built with rugged features for the daily rigors of K-12 education. The ThinkPad X131e Chromebook simplifies software and security management for school administrators and provides students and teachers with quick access to thousands of apps, education resources and storage." Lenovo is the third OEM to jump into ChromeOS. Chromebooks have been doing well on Amazon, apparently, too. Android tablets, iPads, the Mac, and now Chromebooks - it must be rainy in Redmond.

Their policy is stated explicitly, so you would know if they changed it or not.

https://shop.lenovo.com/ISS_Static/ww/ag/merchandising/us/popups/ret...

If you acquired a software product separate from a hardware product, and paid a license fee, you may return the software product in its original, sealed package within 21 days of the date of invoice and obtain a refund or credit.

Note the phrase "separate". I.e. if it was bundled, they brazenly refuse to refund you. They changed the language after they got fried in French court. But just slightly to make it more obscure. Before they used to say it more openly:

Lenovo does not provide refunds or credits for portions of a packaged offering provided at a single price or for preloaded programs installed by Lenovo.
