While showcasing a large number of Windows notebooks, Lenovo also brought two new Chromebooks at this year’s CES show, one for a traditional laptop and the other for a two-in-one detachable. The two models, the FLEX 5 Chromebook and the IdeaPad Duet Chromebook, run Google’s Chrome OS system and have an ultra-portable form factor.
The FLEX 5 Chromebook features a traditional notebook shape, but offers a more flexible hinge design that folds back as a tablet. Weighing less than 3 pounds, the device features a 13-inch Full HD IPS panel with a very narrow bezel in all three directions. In addition, the keyboard of this model is waterproof and has a backlight.
The FLEX 5 Chromebook is made of aluminum and supports stylus input. The model can be configured with Intel’s 10th generation Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory and 128GB Of SSD. Lenovo is equipped with a 2W stereo speaker in the model and is the first Intel Project Athena-certified Chromebook.
As for the IdeaPad Duet Chromebook, it has a detachable design, including a tablet with a stand and an ultra-thin keyboard. The Duet Chromebook’s tablet is partially equipped with a 10.1-inch Full HD 400 nit display, built-in stand, dual speakers and microphone, USB-C, up to 128GB of storage and 4GB of memory with a 718mAh battery. The interior is supported by mediatek Helio P60T octa-core processors and ARM G72 MP3 graphics. The model will be available in May 2020, starting at $279.99.
