Because of the huge number of franchises Memorial Day 2022 deals available at Best Buy this (extended) weekend, and how Apple’s iPads and Android Galaxy Tabs tend to monopolize most listings around The best tablets money can buy, don’t be surprised we missed out on another hot deal in this popular category.
The 13.3-inch version of the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5, which was specifically advertised as a “premium Chromebook” and sold by Best Buy for $120 less than usual, is clearly different from the humble 10.1-inch model that normally costs $299. It dropped to $189 a few weeks ago.
Not only do you see a bigger screen here, but you also see superior OLED screen technology, significantly higher 8GB of RAM, and no less than four speakers that promise a “crystal clear” audio experience for hours of entertainment, and a powerful battery. At work while keeping everything running longer than you might expect, and perhaps most importantly, the Qualcomm Snapdragon SC7180 processor is much faster.
This is certainly no comparison to the recent Apple M1 chip found in the iPad Pro (2021) Duo or this year The fifth generation iPad Air, but at $379, the 128GB Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 somehow dwarfs even Apple’s latest standard 10.2-inch iPad in a 256GB storage configuration.
Just in case you’re not convinced enough, we should point out that for $379 you’ll get a “premium” 13.3-inch Chrome OS device. And the A full-size keyboard that lets you easily turn this giant tablet into a reasonably powerful and productive laptop.
