It's pretty cute, kinda taking the C1 look but adding fabric to make it closer to the Classic.

Looking forward to the ifixit teardown of this item.

Lenovo makes a good product.. I wonder how well it will support the "hacker" community whereas Chumby corners that market smile

Did anyone here buy one? Any thoughts?

Re: Oh look, the Lenovo Smart Clock looks like a Chumby One!

I got a couple sent to me when they were on special for $35 (I'd intended on just getting one, but they shipped two).  So far, it's been pretty limited.  It shows the time and does Google Assistant.  The screen feels very small in the room, even though it's supposed to be a 4" LCD.

I just saw that there's a dev contest to make clock screens at https://flutter.dev/clock. I might try porting some of my Pebble stuff to it.

Does it look like a Raspberry Pi would fit in the case?

No, I don't think it would fit well... it's very small.
