Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook

79% Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook review: OLED is now super affordable | Notebookcheck
Most inexpensive Chromebooks come with average or subpar displays in order to keep costs low. The IdeaPad Duet 5 manages to include an AMOLED panel for superior colors and black levels while maintaining a competitive price.
80% Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook review: A compelling option in a me-too market
Source: Android Authority English
Lenovo put together a solid offering in the IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook. This flexible device can act like a tablet or a laptop depending on your needs or preferences. It allows you to easily switch between modes thanks to the removable keyboard and folio design. Moreover, it’s thinner and lighter than many convertible or clamshell Chromebooks. Beyond the form factor, the hardware itself is well-conceived and manufactured. The brilliant OLED panel is a standout feature, as is the healthy 11-hour battery life. It delivers excellent wireless performance, though the Qualcomm (rather than Intel) processor does mean it’s not the best option for gaming or power users. Compared to more fully-featured Chromebooks, the Duet 5 lacks some basic features such as a headphone jack, expandable storage, and a full set of ports for accessories and multimedia devices. It’s not as sturdy as a convertible or clamshell would be and the typing experience isn’t top-notch.

Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook Review – A great device that does nearly everything
Source: Ausdroid English
Perhaps for some the cost, AU$799.00 at retail outlets, will be a sticking point for some with the argument you can buy a laptop for less. Yeah, probably but it will likely be low performance, low battery life device that won’t perform as well as this or have the lifespan. This has been an overwhelmingly positive experience with well-designed hardware and the evolution of ChromeOS. If a portable device capable of operating in a productivity or entertainment environment sounds good to you, you can check one out at your local JB Hi-Fi store or online.

Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook Review: Best Chrome OS Tablet Ever!
Source: XDA Developers English
Absolutely. If you’re looking for a Chrome OS tablet, there really isn’t another one I’d recommend over the Duet 5. At a price point of $499 at Best Buy, this is the best premium Chrome OS tablet ever made. Of course, if you want to spend way less money and get a smaller, less impressive display, the original Lenovo Duet is still fine too. However, those looking for the best tablet experience with Chrome OS, you’ll want the bigger brother. The Duet 5 beats the HP Chromebook x2 11 in nearly every way, most importantly in performance, battery life, and keyboard comfort on the go. There are other nice options around $500 in the Chromebook space, like the Galaxy Chromebook 2, but those are all traditional clamshell models. If you need portability, versatility, or just want the best media consumption experience, the Duet 5 is impossible to beat. This is definitely one of the best Chromebooks from Lenovo in quite some time. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 is a larger, more premium version of the Chromebook Duet from 2020.

While not the most powerful Chromebook on the market, the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook still packs a punch along with outstanding battery life, a gorgeous display, and a new form factor that improves on last year's model – as long as you're looking for a laptop more than a tablet.

Lenovo IdeaPad Chromebook Duet 5 review: Less than the sum of its parts
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Chromebook Duet 5 is almost exactly what I asked for in a sequel to the original Duet. But, as it turns out, it's not what I wanted. It's still an excellent tablet, especially if you're looking for something that will outlast an intercontinental flight in terms of battery life. It will also play videos like a champion. But the laptop-focused design — and that awkwardly wide screen in particular — means that the Duet 5 loses major convenience points as a tablet. If you're okay with using it like a laptop most of the time and accepting its shortcomings, it's still a fantastic deal for the hardware you get. But, for most users looking for something in this form factor and price range, I'd recommend a conventional Chromebook instead.

While you can see the DNA of the Chromebook Duet in the Duet 5, it’s an astounding transformation, more reminiscent of a Pokemon evolution than a natural generational upgrade. Some of this is the larger size, which admittedly does make it less portable, but at 2.24 pounds, that’s only marginally true and well worth it if you watch videos or do any multitasking. The larger display also allows for a full-size keyboard, which is a night and day difference from the original Chromebook Duet’s Lilliputian keys. The $499 price tag for my review unit is creeping into the upper echelon of Chromebook pricing, which, particularly given the Snapdragon processor, may have some balking, but the hardware justifies that cost. From the vivid OLED display to the over 13 hours of battery life, you won’t find a Windows 11 laptop that comes close for under $500. As long as you are willing to live the Chrome OS life, and aren’t trying to run Linux on it, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 belongs on the shortlist for anyone in the market for a 2-in-1 Chromebook.

90% Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook review: A brilliant tablet for the future of Chrome OS
Source: Android Central English
I've never really understood folks who work full-time from a tablet like the iPad Pro, but the Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook feels just as much like a full-time computer as the Flex 5i, Acer Spin 514, or any traditional 2-in-1 I've used in the last three years. The experience here feels complete and solid. My only complaint here is the keyboard could be a little more solid in-lap, but otherwise, and that's a tiny, tiny complaint given everything this Chromebook does right. Best of all, since this is a Chrome OS tablet, it's going to get software updates until June 2029, meaning this could be the only computer you need for the rest of the decade. Chrome OS's tablet performance is more than ready a year after the Duet's release, and the Duet 5 may very well pave the way for the future of Chrome OS, especially for students and casual users. With a screen you have to see to believe and battery that can go all day and then some, the Lenovo Duet 5 steals from the best of both worlds. For casual computing, homework, and weekend Disney+ binges in bed, this Chrome OS tablet fits the bill perfectly.

Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 Review: My Favorite Chrome Os Tablet Yet
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
While I still can’t make it my only, all-in-one Chrome OS device just yet – it won’t fully support my QHD ultrawide display at the office, which is a limitation of the Snapdragon 7c only supporting FHD external screens – this is the type of Chromebook that one day I can see myself using as both my full-time work and play device once one arrives with a tad bit more power under the hood. For what I’ve been actually using it for, though, processing power has not been an issue at all, and I think most of you watching this will find that to be the case as well. I can’t overstate how surprised I am by how much I love this tablet. Is it perfect? Nope, but it’s a whole lot of fun to use and I have absolutely no reservations when I tell you to pick one up if a larger tablet is something you’d considering. This one is pretty great, and in so many ways I think it could be just the right Chromebook for a lot of people looking for a flexible, attractive, fun device.

Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook review: Best of both worlds
Source: Talk Android English
I actually really, really liked the IdeaPad Duet 5. As a Chromebook, it’s standard fare. You can do a lot on Chrome OS these days, especially since most workflows can be done via a browser anyway. Updates are simple, you can stream music in the background or watch some YouTube, and Google keeps adding and improving features to both Chrome OS and Chrome that makes it better this week than it was last week. It’s not for everyone, obviously, but you’d be surprised how much you can get away with without using Windows these days. As an Android tablet I think it’s already very fun to play with. When you get done writing or whatever else you were working on, just pop the tablet off the keyboard and go watch a movie or play a game for the night in a much more portable package that’ll hold all your favorite apps and sync up with your Google account and phone. It seamlessly integrates into Google’s ecosystem in more ways than one, and that really delivers on what I think was Google’s long-term vision for Chrome OS all along.

80% Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook review: OLED for dirt cheap
Source: Digital Trends English
Chromebooks don’t often beat Windows to market when it comes to implementing new technologies, but Lenovo’s IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook did just that. It’s the first detachable tablet with an OLED display, hitting the market just before the Asus Vivobook 13 Slate that marks the first Windows 11 detachable tablet sporting OLED technology. The IdeaPad Duet 5 is built around Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c Gen 2, an ARM chip, giving it another first. It’s a larger tablet, but it’s nevertheless an alternative to other low-cost devices like the Apple iPad and Microsoft Surface Go 3. I reviewed the midrange configuration of the IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook, running $500 and including the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 and a 13.3-inch 1080p OLED display. I found the tablet to punch well above its price, representing one of the best 2-in-1 tablets at this price.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook is a great value in our $499 Best Buy configuration. Sure, you'll get snappier performance from Microsoft's Core i3-powered Surface Go 3 (under Windows) or Apple's iPad Air (with iPadOS), but those are smaller tablets that will set you back $730 or $898, respectively, with their optional keyboards. And they can't match the Duet 5's dazzling OLED screen. Neither can the HP Chromebook x2, though that detachable comes with the stylus pen that Lenovo charges an extra $32.99 for. Chrome OS dictates lighter or more casual use than the array of apps available for iPadOS or Windows, but the Duet 5 will satisfy plenty of consumers and students. It deserves a place as one of our Chromebook Editors' Choice honorees.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


82.38%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
