The Lenovo Chromebook Duet has caught the attention of bargain hunters who have been looking for a 2-in-1 device that is both relatively easy on the wallet and also offers premium features.
If there is one aspect of a device that is absolutely critical to the user experience, it is the display. Thankfully, Lenovo has not cut any corners with its choice of a 10.1-inch IPS 16:10 aspect ratio 10-point multitouch display that features a better than Full HD 1920x1200 pixel resolution for 224 PPI pixel density. This compares favourably with Apple’s 10.2-inch iPad which offers a 264 PPI density. The Chromebook Duet also sports 400 nits of brightness level. For getting things done, or playing some games, surfing the web or watching a movie, it is hard to fault the Chromebook Duet display at this price.
Another pleasant surprise about the Lenovo Chromebook Duet is that it sports excellent build quality and choice of materials. It is made from an aluminum chassis and is a two-tone combination of “Iron Gray” aluminum on the rear panel joined with “Ice Blue” plastic. The choice of plastic here, rather than going all aluminum, is a clever way of keeping costs down while retaining its looks and ensuring unimpeded wireless connectivity. Naturally the display is glass coated, although Lenovo doesn’t specify the type - it is scratch resistant. The device is also just 7.35 mm thick and weighs 450 grams.
