Product Overview

Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 GEN6 is a 13.3-inch 2-in-1 Chromebook laptop powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 7c Gen2 chipset. It is the first detachable Chromebook in the world to feature an OLED display, which covers 100% of DCI-P3 color space.
While the IdeaPad Duet 5 is slotted beneath the Yoga Duet 7 series, being down in power and lesser in features, the OLED display plus a quad speaker setup make the Duet 5 perhaps a more focused multimedia machine. This point is reinforced by Lenovo's choice to go with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a thin and light chassis.
I/O-wise, the IdeaPad Duet 5 is somewhat limited, though perhaps unsurprisingly so. It comes with just two USB-C ports, whose thinner profiles are what Lenovo is able to fit to the Duet 5's chassis.
A strong point of this 2-in-1 Chromebook is the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 mobile platform, which opens the door to multitasking with a large range of mobile apps and games. Thanks to Chrome OS, it also has good integration with Google's own services.

The IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 chip. It's efficient enough to enable a full day of use on a single charge. The 13.3-inch OLED display is larger than the biggest iPad Pro and uses better tech than the iPad Air. The 8MP rear camera is awful.

Pros
  • Gorgeous, vivid OLED display

  • Excellent performance
Cons
  • Poor keyboard
  • No USB Type-C port

The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook is a great value in our $499 Best Buy configuration. The keyboard has a flat, "tappy" typing feel, not as comfortable as a true laptop keyboard. The Galaxy Chromebook 2 performed miserably in Geekbench but otherwise the two performance benchmarks told the same story.

Pros
  • Sleek design

Reviewers from pcworld have found the following***:
The Duet 5 has a brilliant OLED panel that makes every pixel pop with amazing contrast and color. The new Snapdragon SC7180 is a big improvement over the MediaTek chip on the original. The keyboard and trackpad are notably better on this model. The larger 13-inch screen and tiny bezels make it difficult to hold comfortably.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
Last year's Duet Chromebook was a fantastic value for the price. The Duet 5 Chromebook is more expensive, starting at $429 ($499 as tested), and AU$799 in Australia. The OLED display alone more than justifies the increase in price. Even when bumping up to the 8GB RAM configuration for $499, you still get a 1080p OLED display for under $500.

Pros
  • Gorgeous OLED display
  • Great battery life
  • Great performance
Cons

  • Keyboard isn’t backlit
