Lenovo IdeaPad Chromebook Duet 5 review: Less than the sum of its parts


Lenovo's bigger, better Chrome OS tablet isn't actually that great as a tablet, but the IdeaPad Chromebook Duet 5's OLED display is drop-dead gorgeous.

Gorgeous screen ; Amazing battery life ; Good price

Gorgeous screen ; Amazing battery life ; Good price

In terms of hardware the Duet 5 is an almost perfect upgrade to the original budget design. But its big, wide screen make it awkward as a tablet, and it’s only so-so as a laptop alternative.

Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook review


The Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook's OLED display and 13+ hours of battery life make it a near-perfect Chromebook

Excellent battery life ; Detachable 2-in-1 design ; Bright, vivid OLED display ; Keyboard and cover included

Stylus not included ; Weak performance for the price

The Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook can’t compete on power, but it makes up for it with a gorgeous OLED display, over 13 hours of battery life and a versatile 2-in-1 form factor.

[Review] The Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook holds a bright future for Chrome OS


A 13.3-inch tablet seems ridiculously huge, but Lenovo nailed the essentials with the Duet 5 and produced one of the most unique and fun Chromebooks of 2021. Here's why it's almost perfect — and why it should be your next family Chromebook.

Touchscreen is twice as bright as 2-in-1s ; Detachable keyboard and kickstand ; Snapdragon 7c 2nd Gen sips battery like cognac ; 8GB RAM models available at launch

Good for casual computing, not heavy workloads ; Keyboard hinge isn't great

: 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...

Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook review: A confident convertible | IT PRO


A gorgeous display, superb battery life and Surface Pro-style form factor all lift the Duet 5 above its rivals

Fantastic screen ; Impressive battery life ; Good value

Disappointing keyboard ; Somewhat unwieldy as a tablet ; Rivals are more powerful
