I’ve implied this on multiple occasions but now, I’m ready to just say it. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 is, hands-down, the best ChromeOS tablet money can buy. For now, anyway. While the 13.3″ detachable may not be everyone’s cup of tea, the OLED-toting tablet offers a ton of value even at its retail price of $499. Don’t believe me? See what Robby has to say in the full review below.
Needless to say, we’re huge fans of the Duet 5 and we love it even more when you can pick one up on the cheap. Right now, Best Buy is discounting the more-desirable 8GB/128GB model of the Duet 5 and you can save $120 when you buy one. That brings the price down to a delectable $379 which is the same price as the smaller, less-powerful Duet 3 that we just reviewed. Here’s a quick look at what you get for under $400.
