Premium Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 with keyboard drops to insanely low prices in two models

Written by admin

Due to the sheer number of excellent Memorial Day 2022 deals available at Best Buy this (extended) weekend and how Apple’s iPads and Samsung’s Android-powered Galaxy Tabs tend to monopolize most lists selling the best tablets to buy anytime, it shouldn’t surprise you that we almost missed a new bargain in this popular category.

Advertised specifically as a “premium Chromebook,” the 13.3-inch version of the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 sold by Best Buy for $120 less than usual is markedly different from the modest 10.1-inch model that normally sells for $120. 299 costs and marked all the way down to $189 a few weeks back.

Not only are you looking at a bigger screen here, but also much superior OLED screen technology, a significantly higher 8GB RAM count, no less than four speakers that promise a “crystal clear” audio experience for hours and hours of entertainment, a hefty battery to last much longer than you probably expect, and perhaps most importantly, a significantly faster Qualcomm Snapdragon SC7180 processor.

Admittedly, that’s definitely no match for the state-of-the-art Apple M1 chip that will appear in the duo iPad Pro (2021) or this year Fifth-generation iPad Air, but at $379, the 128GB Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 somehow undercuts even Apple’s latest 10.2-inch “standard” iPad in a 256GB storage configuration.

In case that doesn’t sound convincing enough, we should point out that for $379 you get the 13.3-inch “premium” Chrome OS tablet itself. and a full-sized keyboard that lets you easily turn that giant slate into a decidedly productive and fairly powerful laptop.

And if you want to emulate the local digital hamster room of the aforementioned ninth-generation iPad, Lenovo can currently hook you up with a $350.99 version of the Chromebook Duet 5 with 4 gigs instead of 8 gigs of memory paired with 256 GB. eMMC storage.

This is listed as a “clearance” rather than a Memorial Day deal, so it may or may not last longer than the $120 Best Buy discount, saving you $110 right away and an extra $39 if you stick to it. thinks to use the “CLEARANCE2022” eCoupon code on check out.
