We’re still picking up the pieces after CES 2020 and discovering products we’ve missed in Las Vegas. Chromebooks were a big item and Lenovo couldn’t stay away. Thus, they unveiled the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet, which is a detachable 2 in 1 machine.
Chrome OS devices like these have the big advantage of being able to run Android apps and that’s just one example. Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook is supposed to be as light as a tablet and it comes with a 10.1 inch screen with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and 400 nits of brightness. It also has a MediaTek Helio P60T processor inside, a quad core affair clocked at 2 GHz. There’s also 4 GB of RAM (LPDDR4X) and 128 GB of eMMC solid state storage.
There are front and rear cameras here, dual speakers, dual array microphones and the usual connectivity options, including an USB-C port, Bluetooth and WiFi. The detachable keyboard with trackpad almost makes this a laptop. It comes with an 18 mm key pitch and 1.3 mm of key travel. There’s also a kickstand in the mix. The slate part weighs 430 grams and we also get a 7180 mAh battery crammed in the dual tone aluminum design. The device also has support for USI (Universal Stylus Initiative) pens.
The product is priced at $279.99 and it’s going to ship in April.
