Save $170 on the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i. It has a detachable keyboard and folio kickstand for use in tablet and viewing mode. Powered by Windows 11, it's a more affordable Surface device alternative. The laptop in this deal has a 10.3 inch (1920 x 1080) touch display, 1.1-GHz Intel Pentium Silver N5030 4-core CPU, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of eMMC storage. 

Lenovo's 10.3 inch IdeaPad Duet 3i is the Windows11-powered variant of its beloved Chrome OS-charged 10.1 inch Chromebook Duet. Like its sibling, it boasts a sleek, versatile, portable design.

The detachable 2-in-1 in this deal has a 10.3 inch (1920 x 1080) touch display, 1.1-GHz Intel Pentium Silver N5030 4-core CPU, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of eMMC storage. This is all you need for the basics like creating docs, emailing, web browsing and streaming content. While multitasking should be decent, don't expect it to run power-hogging demanding apps.

We didn't test this Windows version, however, we gave the Lenovo Chromebook Duet a high rating of 4 out of 5-stars. We found its flexible design, good performance and incredibly low price impressive. And unlike many of today's more costly 2-in-1 devices, it ships with its own keyboard attachment. The tablet in the deal affords you the same luxury so you won't need to purchase a separate accessory for typing. 

So if you're Father's Day gift shopping or in the market for an affordable Surface-like device, the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i is a budget-friendly option.
