Lenovo Chromebook Duet

128 GB Lenovo Chromebook Duet is in stock and on sale for $259: $40 off

Good news if you’re interested in my pick for 2020 Chromebook of the year, which is actually a Chrome OS tablet. The excellent Lenovo Chromebook Duet is on sale for $259 again at Best Buy which is a $40 discount on the 128 GB model.

After reviewing the Lenovo Chromebook Duet back in June, I said it would make a fantastic secondary device, although it is possible to make your primary Chromebook as well.

It’s great for laptop browsing, running Android apps, and watching online or locally stored media.

Part of the reason for that is because the Octa-core MediaTek processor offers great bang for buck performance, even with 4 GB of memory, which I consider the bare minimum these days. It doesn’t hurt that the 10.1-inch display is a high-quality 1920 x 1080 panel with an above-average 400 nits of brightness. And the fact that you get both the Duet cover/stand and detachable keyboard is a plus.

If I were planning to make this Chrome OS tablet a daily, all-day device, I’d personally pipe the output to a external monitor though. Staring at a 10.1-inch display for 8 or more hours would cause my four eyes to bug out. External display support is easily achieved with a proper USB-C cable for video out. Just bear in mind that the Duet only supports 1080p at 24fps on a monitor.

This model on sale is the higher configuration of the Lenovo Duet Chromebook, meaning it has one and only one boost over the base model: Double the local storage. The base model comes with 64 GB of storage while this configuration offers 128 GB.

Essentially, with the sale you’re getting the higher storage capacity model for the $20 less than the MSRP of the base price.

Here’s a rundown of the full specs, which are the exact same as the model I reviewed:

  1. …and now it’s down to $249! Thanks for the heads-up Kevin…I picked one up after reading your post and am really impressed with the device. Chrome OS is much more useable on a tablet than it used to be.

    1. Awesome! Glad it’s working out for you. The tablet experience isn’t perfect on Chrome OS but it’s come a long way in the past year. And the Duet is an impressive piece of hardware, even at full price. The sale is a bonus!

  2. I picked one up as well, had a $50 reward waiting at BB so that made this devise super affordable to keep by my recliner for casual browsing email, reading the days headlines, etc. J
