Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 is the 13.3-inch OLED sequel to last year's hit 10.1-inch Duet 2-in-1 detachable
Lenovo has been having good success over the past couple of years with its Android and Chrome OS-based tablets. It has found a winning combination and features, performance and price that has appealed to consumers. Building on the success of last year’s popular and critically well-received Chromebook Duet, the company has followed up with its latest iteration dubbed the Chromebook Duet 5.
If there was a common wish from customers of its 10.1-inch Chromebook Duet, it was that it might also offer a larger variant. Lenovo has delivered on this with the Chromebook Duet 5 which now centers on a 13.3-inch display. Although typically a laptop-sized display, Lenovo has kept the 2-in-1 detachable tablet form factor that made the original so popular. With Chrome OS offering both Android app support and a full desktop version of the Chrome browser, it has become a very practical option for many users.
Lenovo has turned up the features by including a 1080p OLED panel with 100 percent coverage of the DCI-p3 color space and adding a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 octa-core processor. RAM comes in either 4 GB or 8 GB options with storage configurations including 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB although each is limited to the eMMC type. Battery life is rated up to 15 hours while it also comes with the keyboard and kick-stand as part of the bundle.
The Lenovo Chromebook Duet (or IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook as it will be sold in the US) will go on sale in October starting from US$429.
