Earlier this year, at CES 2020, Lenovo debuted the IdeaPad Duet, which is basically a Chromebook and a detachable machine. It took some time, but we finally have a launch date: May 11th. The price should be a pretty decent $299 and we have more details below.
This Chrome OS-based machine has a similar form factor and functionality as the Pixel Slate, but it’s less pricey. By the way, the price tag above includes a keyboard. The product is now live on Best Buy’s website in USA. It relies and a not so often used MediaTek Helio P60T octa core CPU, together with 4 GB of RAM. Lenovo is also offering 128 GB of storage and a 10.1 inch IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution.
The battery sounds good, at 7180 mAh and the bundled detachable keyboard comes with a full trackpad. Expect a debut in Taiwan, Japan, China and more after the US wave. We also get dual speakers, dual array mics and an USB-C port, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth. The keyboard has keys with 18 mm key pitch and 1.3 mm of travel. It rests on a kickstand and the tablet parts weighs a decent 430 grams. Styli are also supported, those that are part of the USI (Universal Stylus Initiative).
The specs list is completed by a main 8 megapixel camera and a front 2 MP shooter. You can buy the product from here.
