In our Lenovo Chromebook Duet review, we liked its ultraportable design, color-rich display, and overall performance. We were also impressed by its long lasting battery which endured 13 hours on our Laptop Mag battery test. We gave the Lenovo Chromebook Duet an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. 

In one test, we opened 24 Google Chrome tabs, an additional tab playing a 1080p YouTube video, and opened up Google Docs. Paragraph after paragraph, there was no system slowdown or lag.  In our lab, the Chromebook Duet scored 5,526 on the Geekbench 4 overall performance benchmark. It scored higher than the average Chromebook, which has an overall-performance score of 5,293.

At a weight of 2 pounds and 9.6 x 6.7 x 0.7 inches, the Chromebook Duet is more portable than its competitors. It's lighter and smaller than the Samsung Chromebook 3 (2.5 pounds, 11 x 8 x 0.7 inches) and HP Chromebook x360 12b (2.9 pounds, 10.7 x 8.5 x 0.7 inches). As for connectivity, the Chromebook Duet has a single USB Type-C port for power charging, data transfer, DisplayPort and USB on-the-go. 

If you're in the market for a portable, versatile PC, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet is an exceptional value — especially at this price!
