Lenovo first announced the IdeaPad Duet and IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebooks at CES 2020 in January. Since then, there has been no word about the products. A couple of days back Best Buy listed the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook for pre-order. The listing is for the 128GB version and it comes in at $299. Now, this price is pretty unrealistic, considering that the Chromebook 64GB version is priced at $279.
Already, some intending buyers have successfully placed orders for the Duet ad it is billed to ship on May 11. But Best Buy has now removed the pre-order button and replace it with “Coming soon”. Perhaps it was an early listing or they have got enough orders already. The product page shows that the IdeaPad Duet will go on sale on May 6 but Lenovo is yet to official confirm the release date.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet is a detachable Chromebook that comes with a keyboard base in the box. The 10.1-inch tablet has an FHD display, a single USB-C port, and runs on top of Google’s Chrome OS with “up to” eight years of updates.
The device is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60T processor along with 4 GB of RAM, 64GB storage and 128 GB of storage on the top-tier model. There’s also a 7,180 mAh battery within, an 8 MP camera on the back, and a 2 MP camera on the front.
