I don't usually like ARM powered Chromebooks or Chromebooks / dual tablets. However, the latest Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 has made me rethink.

This hybrid laptop is a Chromebook and a 2-in-1 tablet. The 13.3-inch lightweight tablet / display is fully accessible.

His screen is one of my favorite things about this combo. Samsung is an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display, which delivers stunning colors, darkness and contrast. I don't like watching videos on screens. That's why I paid big money for LG OLED77C1 4K TV. I mean, why would I watch something on a small display when I have a 77 - inch TV? But, for the first time, I have a portable screen I will be happy to see the next episode of Star Trek Discovery on.

Technically, it has a basic resolution of 1920x1080. This is supported by Qualcomm Adreno GPU. You can also adjust to cut down on blue light if you are worried about staying up nights watching a TV show on display when you should be sleeping.

All powered by an 8-core, 2.55 GHz Qualcomm ARM Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor. Inside this you'll find two Kryo 495 Gold fast cores based on ARM Cortex-A76 architecture and six Kryo power-efficient small cores 495 Silver built on ARM Cortex-A55 design. This is not fast enough to make this laptop a gaming device, but it is faster than watching 4K videos.

For storage, the Duet 5 uses 128GBs of eMMC Flash Memory. That's more than enough for a Chromebook. It also has 8 GB of RAM.

When it comes to talking to the rest of the world, it comes with Bluetooth and 802.11ax, which is more familiar to me and you as Wi - Fi 6.

The only drawback is that it only comes with a pair of USB-C ports. That's it. The end.

I benchmarked the device using Principled Technologies' second-generation Chromebook-specific CrXRPT benchmark using the latest Chrome OS. Principled Technologies, a descendant of Ziff-Davis Benchmark Operations, is one of the best private measurement and testing companies on the planet.

This test will tell you how fast a Chromebook handles things you do every day. This includes getting to work and more fun activities such as playing video games, watching movies, and editing pictures.

The performance test gives you an overall score. By this criterion, the higher the score, the better. In this case, he got a good 61. For ARM-powered Chromebooks, this is a good number. Its battery life came to a healthy 12+ hours.

Overall, the IdeaPad Duet 5 retails for $ 499. As far as I'm concerned, that's a good price for a great device. Now, if you will excuse me, I have installed Linux on it, which is now fully supported on Chromebooks, and I am going to work to fix that right.
