In our Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook review, we loved it so much that we gave it a solid 4 out of 5-star rating and our Editor's Choice Award. It wowed us with its vivid OLED display, long battery life, and practical 2-in-1 design. 

During real-world tests, it juggled 24 Google Chrome tabs, two YouTube 1080p videos, and Google Docs simultaneously with no issue. Back in our lab, it endured 13 hours and 31 minutes and continuous surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness in our Laptop Mag Battery Test. 

At just 2.2 pounds and 0.27-inches thin, this lightweight 2-in-1 Chromebook slides easily into a backpack or shoulder bag. If you're looking for a modestly-priced Surface Pro-like Windows alternative, the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook fits the bill.
