The 10.1-inch detachable two-in-one combines premium tablet design with a snappy removable keyboard and fabric-clad kickstand cover.
For a $280 Chromebook, the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook looks and feels like higher-end premium two-in-ones.
In blue and gray, the 1-pound tablet looks good by itself.
Use the Duet with or without its keyboard.
The keyboard firmly snaps to the Duet with magnets and a pogo pin connector.
The fabric cover attaches magnetically and has a sturdy built-in kickstand.
With the keyboard and rear cover attached, the Duet is only 18.2mm (0.71 inch) thick.
The Duet has only a single USB-C port. It does support display output up to 1080p, so you can connect a monitor and other peripherals for a desktop experience.
While most of the keyboard is spacious enough for fast typists, the right side requires a high level of accuracy. Lenovo cut keys like the apostrophe in half -- I frequently missed it and hit Enter instead.
At just a pound with the rear cover off, the Duet is comfortable to use handheld.
The clickpad works well but you'll have to keep your palms from dragging.
The keyboard, despite the shrunken keys on the right side, is generally comfortable. It's not backlit, though.
You get both the keyboard and kickstand cover in the box.
Aside from gaming, you've got plenty of media app support for things like Netflix and Disney Plus bingeing.
The Lenovo Duet is available now in the US starting at $280 for one with 64GB of storage and $300 with 128GB of storage.
