In our Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 review, we praise the laptop's bright, vivid OLED display and 2-in-1 design. It also wowed us with its long battery life — lasting 13 hours and 31 minutes on our Laptop Mag Battery Test. We gave the IdeaPad Duet 5 an overall rating of 4 out of 5-stars and our coveted Editor's Choice award. In one test, the IdeaPad Duet 5 effortlessly managed 24 Google Chrome tabs, two YouTube 1080p videos, and Google Docs simultaneously. You can expect seamless multitasking whether you're creating documents or streaming content. 

Connectivity-wise, the Duet 5 supplies you with two USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 ports. Although there's no built-in 3.5mm jack, it supports wireless headphones via Bluetooth. With a weight of 2.2 pounds and dimensions of 12 x 7.32 x 0.27 inches, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 is on par with the competition. It’s lighter and thinner than the Asus Chromebook Detachable CM3 (2 pounds, 2.7 x 8.9 x 0.68 inches) and HP Chromebook x2 11 (2.6 pounds, 9.9 x 4.6 x 0.3 inches).
