Lenovo announced several computers at Mobile World Congress 2022, including the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook. This is a smaller version of the IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook that was released late last year. The latest model has a smaller LCD screen (the older model had an OLED screen), two stereo speakers instead of four, and less battery life despite the same battery and platform.
Lenovo says the IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook is the successor to the original IdeaPad Duet Chromebook. It features a two-tone finish that is found on almost all Lenovo tablets. It measures just 7.9mm thick and is available in two colors, Storm Gray and Misty Blue.
Like its predecessor, the new tablet comes with a flip case and detachable keyboard. In some markets, it also comes bundled with a stylus, while in others, customers have to purchase it separately.
The Chromebook received an 11-inch 2K resolution LCD panel with a 5:3 aspect ratio, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 single-chip system, combined with 4/8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64/128/256 eMMC flash memory.
It runs on Chrome OS. The detachable module offers multiple connectivity options such as dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, dual USB 3.0 Gen 1 (Type-C), and a spring-loaded connector for an official keyboard accessory. The Chromebook also received two stereo speakers, an 8-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, up to 12 hours of battery life and 45W fast charging.
The price is 349 euros, sales will start in May.
