[Specs and Info] Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook (11″) – Should it just run Android?

Chromebooks come in all shapes and sizes, as well as different hardware and form factors. Today we have the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook, an 11-inch tablet/laptop hybrid with a removable keyboard. While it runs ChromeOS, some people could ponder the question of why it doesn’t come with Android, as the form factor is suitable. Truth is, ChromeOS has started to become a lot more capable. Google is opening up the possibility of running Linux apps, while the Play store gives you a lot of options as well. The Chromebook runs an ARM SoC and a 15:9 display, along with having a Pen attachment, so it’s a fairly complex machine.

Today we’re giving you a quick overview of the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook (11″).

Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook (11″): Full Specs


The tablet itself is made of metal, with glass being used for the display cover. As for the keyboard attachment and back cover, it uses both aluminum and plastic. The tablet comes with a two-tone finish on the back and two color options, Misty blue or Storm grey. In terms of dimensions, the device itself has a thickness of only 7.9 mm, while weighing 516.5 grams. With the attachment, the weight increases to 945.8 grams.


The display on the front has a resolution of 2000 x 1200, which comes down to a 15:9 aspect ratio. According to the spec sheet, it can go as high as 400 nits in terms of brightness, while having a 1400:1 contrast ratio and close to 100% sRGB coverage.

Specifications and features

Powering the Chromebook is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform, which is an SoC with the Kryo 468 CPU, which has 8 cores running at 2.55 GHz. It also houses the Adreno 618 GPU, with 128 Shader Units. It’s needless to say that this isn’t going to be the best-performing Chromebook, but for daily use and some Creative expression, you’ll definitely be happy with it. The I/O isn’t anything special, using only two USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, which support charging as well as having a DisplayPort output. Lenovo does bring you some accessories, including a USB C to audio jack dongle, so you can connect to some headphones. There are cameras on the front, as well as the back. The main shooter has an 8MP resolution, while the front selfie cam is 5MP only.
