Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 12IAU7, i3-1215U
Source: PC Mag
All told, the Windows version of Lenovo's IdeaPad Duet 5i hits all of its marks and holds superior value compared to popular competitors. Microsoft's Surface Pro is the pace-setter in this category, with Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 following its lead. The Lenovo doesn't have quite the premium feel those detachables do, and its 128GB of storage and Core i3 processor might cramp your style (the storage especially). But its build quality is impressive, and its performance is a pleasant surprise for its price and what it includes. These reasonable concessions help keep the cost down, and they are not enough to keep it from earning our Editors' Choice for this tier. If you want a Windows tablet for grab-and-go productivity and entertainment, it fills a nifty niche between cheaper and more deluxe 2-in-1 laptops.
