In Lenovo Chromebook Duet review, we gave it a 4 out of 5-star rating for its ultraportable design, colorful display and performance. We’re also fond of its long lasting battery which endured 13 hours on our Laptop Mag battery test.
In one test, we opened 24 Google Chrome tabs, an additional tab playing a 1080p YouTube video, and opened up Google Docs. Paragraph after paragraph, there was no system slowdown or lag. In our lab, the Chromebook Duet scored 5,526 on the Geekbench 4 overall performance benchmark. It scored higher than the average Chromebook, which has an overall-performance score of 5,293.
