No need to spend a fortune to enjoy OLED on a laptop. Boulanger is setting up a big promotion on the Lenovo Duet 5. This hybrid Chromebook thus falls below 500 euros.
Very widespread in smartphones, OLED arrived later on laptops. Of course, it was on high-end PCs that it made its debut, making it inaccessible to those on a tight budget. However, it is possible to benefit from this screen technology without blowing your savings.
Thus, the Lenovo Duet 5, an OLED Chromebook, currently benefits from an immediate discount of 150 euros at Boulanger, which drops its price to 429 euros instead of 579 euros.
The mobility of a tablet, the versatility of a laptop
It will be necessary to wait a few years before the OLED is democratized on affordable machines. Which makes the Lenovo Duet 5 one of the few computers to offer an OLED panel for less than 500 euros.
This Chromebook is presented above all as a 13-inch touchscreen tablet to which it suffices to add a keyboard to transform it into a laptop.
Far from cheap Android tablets, the Lenovo Duet 5 benefits from an elegant design, with an aluminum and plastic shell, with flat edges and rounded corners. Its thickness of 7 mm and its mass of 650 g make it also pleasant to hold and easy to transport.
Of course, it’s its screen that makes it stand out. Fully tactile, it offers a very nice image thanks to its good calibration. The blacks are deep, the brightness well managed, all with a very good definition of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. In other words, watching streaming content is a real pleasure. As for the tactile, it allows to gain in speed and ergonomics since the navigation is done with the tip of the finger.
Under the hood hides a Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 chip. This processor has a double advantage. This is a powerful mobile chip that does not need a fan. This Chromebook therefore makes absolutely no noise.
The other advantage of this chip lies in its autonomy management, which ensures you long hours of use without melting the battery. It also offers an average endurance of 12 hours.
The rest of the spec sheet is made up of 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Daily use is fluid, both for office tasks and web browsing.
Chrome OS: the easiest operating system to use
It’s not just that it’s hybrid that makes the Lenovo Duet 5 perfect for students, professionals, or on the go. Its strength comes from Chrome OS, the operating system designed by Google. An OS that can boast of being the easiest to use on the market.
Already, it is very light. Chrome OS works perfectly well on a configuration with little RAM and/or a mobile processor. It only takes a few seconds to boot up or wake up.
Another specificity of Chrome OS, it is entirely articulated around the Cloud. This strategy makes it maintain its performance over time, thanks to automatic updates in the background. Not to mention the presence of an integrated antivirus that natively offers excellent security.
A choice that relieves the physical memory of the Lenovo Duet 5 since Google Workspace (Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides) is managed from the Cloud. The 64 GB of storage is therefore dedicated to third-party applications as well as to your various documents (the latter can be saved on Google Drive).
If the Cloud is the main element of Chrome OS, that does not prevent the Lenovo Duet 5 from working offline. On the contrary, you can work without interruption, even in the event of a network outage since all your modifications are saved on the computer before being synchronized online once the connection returns.
Finally, the ecosystem is not closed, because it is possible to download thousands of Android apps from the Google Play Store, including games like Diablo Immortal or Slay the Spire. Better, if the Google Workspace suite is not your cup of tea, you can install office services, such as Office 365.
Up to 200 euros reduction at Boulanger
In addition to the excellence of Chrome OS, and its hybrid dimension thanks to its detachable keyboard, the Lenovo Duet 5 has a significant advantage: offering an OLED screen for less than 500 euros.
Indeed, Boulanger is launching an immediate discount on the Lenovo Duet 5 range. With the 4 + 64 GB version, the Lenovo Duet 5 is sold for 429 euros against 579 euros, i.e. a discount of 150 euros.
The more muscular version with 8 + 128 GB enjoys a 200 euro discount and drops to 499 euros instead of 699 euros.
