Lenovo Ideapad Duet: brilliant performance for the Google Fans

Prefer a Chromebook instead of a laptop? Most people know the term Chromebook to start from nothing. The idea is the Google operating system Chrome OS with Google services, the Google account and the Google connected to connect Cloud.

However, Chromebooks are too small prices available, because the operating system deals frugal with resources and all of the data already in the Cloud land.

Updates are performed automatically, and the Creation of security copies is omitted, because everything in the Google-hovering clouds. You have to trust Google, you have total control over every single Chromebook.

For several years, Apps will run even Android on the chromebook, but they are far from all conceivable application scenarios to cover, and a lot of joy on the scaling of the Apps on a large Monitor.

All of this sounds like a disadvantage, but has the advantage that the entire Google Ecosystem, with the application available immediately, and the computer after logging out easily to someone else.

Chromebooks are not the future, but an interesting niche. Currently, some dozen devices cavort in it. Unfortunately, the reference devices of Google, pixel book called are not available in Germany. But now there is a Chromebook that we can recommend without restriction, and which provides also with its excellent price-performance ratio of all the other products in the shadows: The Ideapad Duet Chromebook from Lenovo costs together with keyboard for just 329 euros, and thus taking the Tablet to Android head-on.
