The Lenovo Chromebook Duet is one of the only Chromebooks I've ever used that knows what it is. Much like Apple's iPad or Microsoft's Surface, the Duet's identity is in its detachable versatility. The Duet costs just $299 at Best Buy for 128GB of storage and that's with a detachable keyboard.

Reviewers from Theverge have found the following[***]:
Lenovo has cut some corners to shave the Chromebook Duet down to that price point. Despite the corners that have been cut with the keyboard and touchpad, no part of the Duet looks or feels cheap. The Duet has all of one USB-C port, which will be occupied whenever the device is charging.

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Chromebook Duet is one of the few ‘2-in-1 tablets’ I've reviewed that bundles the keyboard accessory in the box. The keyboard is nowhere near the standard of a proper laptop one, and so may not be up for the challenge of a plus 10,000 word essay. The trackpad is top-notch too, and is far more responsive than those found on similarly priced Chromebooks. The Duet has a fabulous 10.1-inch touchscreen, with the Full HD resolution ensuring a sharp picture and the IPS panel featuring punchy colours. With a MediaTek Helio P60T Octa-Core processor and 4GB RAM, it is less powerful than the majority of Chromebooks and laptops.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful 10.1-inch touchscreen
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Poor performance in dark scenes
