The Duet 7i isn’t trying to push the performance to a whole new level, and Lenovo has never made any such claim. A device like the Duet 7i is for those who give more preference to portability yet want a full-fledged laptop experience. The hybrid form factor has advantages over the traditional laptop design but flaws too. The tablet adds an extra touch, something you don’t get from a regular laptop. The form and design are great and so are the screen, kickstand, and the bundled keyboard and stylus. Can the Duet 7i replace a laptop? I think the answer to this really depends on what you use your laptop for. If you, like me, mostly write, check emails or watch a lot of videos all day, you might want to consider the Duet 7i. But if your demands are high (like coding, or rendering videos), I think you should look at other options.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
