The original Lenovo Chromebook Duet earned a spot on our list of best Chromebooks. While we've yet to test the Duet 5, on paper this Chromebook appears to be a worthy successor. It features a detachable keyboard and fabric back cover with built-in kickstand, 13.3-inch 1080p OLED touch display, Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB eMMC. 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 has some respectable specs. It includes a 14-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD, Core i7-1185G7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. Since this is a business laptop, it comes with Windows 11 Pro built-in. With specs like that, the laptop will likely not slow down, even when you're multitasking. 

The large 14-inch WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) touch display should give you plenty of room to keep multiple windows open. According to Lenovo, the screen covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut and can reach up to 400 nits of brightness. 

In our Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 review, we said it's a solid mid-range laptop that's perfectly suited for the average working person. Its performance is all around great, with an excellent battery life (over 14 hours on a single charge) and ventilation. It also has remarkably good speakers, especially when you consider its size.

If you don't need that much power, the ChromeBook Duet is a great budget pick. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 features the same detachable keyboard and fabric back cover with built-in kickstand found in its predecessor. However, the comparisons end there as the new laptop packs a 13.3-inch 1080p OLED touch display, Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB eMMC.
