The Chromebook Duet is a 2-in-1 laptop/tablet hybrid by Lenovo that many people have been clamoring to the local Best Buy and seeking its availability on Amazon to purchase recently. With it’s included detachable keyboard, protective back cover and quality build for a reasonable asking price (starting at $279/64GB) – I begin to understand why, as my curiosity in the Duet as a tablet grew. Now that I have had the device for a few days, these are my impressions.
The Chromebook Duet has a 10.1 inch FHD IPS touchscreen with 400 nits of brightness, and USI pen compatibility. It packs an 7000 mAh battery that offers up to 10 hours of battery life, has 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. The two-tone Ice Blue + Iron Grey design is made of aluminum alloy, and I must say – I like the look and feel of the Ice Blue and how it offsets the ‘serious’ metallic Grey.
In-Depth Review : In Progress
This is my first time interacting with Google’s operating system – ChromeOS, which powers the Chromebook Duet. We’ve all heard the whispers of rumors around the internet about the web-centric OS being little more than the Chrome browser, but I beg to differ. Having only used Apple products, my Macbook Air and iPhone Xr – I felt right at home transitioning from macOS to ChromeOS – and the experience is quite similar to the one on my iPhone, particularly with gesture navigation. Will it be able to converge my desktop/tablet workflow? Time will tell.
I will be using the Chromebook Duet as my primary computing device for the next few weeks. Be one of the first readers to be notified when my in-depth review goes live, subscribe to Labfreq below!
