Lenovo’s excellent Chromebook Duet has dropped below $200 for the first time

With graduation just around the corner, Best Buy’s current deal on the Lenovo Chromebook Duet — our favorite budget-friendly Chromebook — couldn’t have arrived at a better time. If you’re looking for a useful present that’s available for under $200, Best Buy is selling Lenovo’s Chromebook Duet with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for just $189, more than $100 off the Chromebook’s typical retail price of $299.99.

That’s the best price we’ve seen on the Chromebook Duet, a 2-in-1 that impressed us with its long battery life and affordable price point. During our testing, we were able to use it for nearly 11 and a half hours on a single charge while we made Zoom calls and ran through a variety of tabs and apps, including Gmail, Slack, and Facebook. We also liked how light and portable the convertible is as well as the fact that it includes a detachable keyboard and kickstand cover.

Of course, the Duet has its drawbacks. It’s a cramped laptop given the 10.1-inch display (its included keyboard is small, too), and the MediaTek Helio P60T processor means it’s not great for more system-intensive tasks, either. It also lacks a 3.5mm audio jack and offers just one USB-C port. Still, if you need a Chromebook for browsing and performing everyday tasks, this is a good Chrome OS machine to consider.
