Just yesterday we signaled that the Lenovo Chromebook Duet would be available for Black Friday at JB Hi-Fi for only $ 374. makes it amazing value. When we checked it out we thought it was a great product, but the Australian tax ruined not only its value but also our ability to recommend it.
The question remains, would I buy one? Probably. The only thing holding me back is the price. The price is disappointing but more of what we are used to here in Australia. In the US, this combo costs less than $ 300, but the Australian tax is high on the Lenovo Chromebook Duet, bringing the price up to AU $ 599.
Now, Officeworks, who must have been waiting for JB Hi-Fi to jump first, put it up for sale on their website for nearly $ 50 cheaper! At $ 329 and a limit of 3 per customer, it must be worth thinking about. Even though it only has a Mediatek chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, it’s still a great machine.
The detachable keyboard is small, but not too small to be unusable. The big advantage, however, is that Android apps can be installed. Take that keyboard off and you have a Chrome / Android tablet that can be used for anything you want. I think I’m in the process of convincing myself to buy a tablet.
The Lenovo Chomebook Duet is only available in store. I suspect you should get started quickly as most of the Officeworks stores near me are sold out. If you need a portable computer that can double as an Android / Chrome tablet, I wholeheartedly recommend that this is the device for you!
I’m frustrated, I ordered a second hand on eBay, then they sent me vague messages that I might have been ripped off at $ 400. I guess I’ll get my money back if I’ve been ripped off. As I did on my Pixel 3XL, after some time customs fees, 1 set of postage, purchase of a Widows Phone 10 as a stopover; I could have bought a Chromebook Duet from the local Office Works for less, new, with 128GB of storage guaranteed. Looks like a good chip, 4 large and 4 small, ARM 72, 64-bit cores, my Acer Chromebook Tab… Read more »
This could be a price match with the Amazon listing available earlier in the day.
I was waiting for the JB HiFi deal but jumped on the Amazon deal before it sold out.
At this point you (Ozbargain) are not sure if this is the real price – if it is already the discounted price or if it is another discount on the already discounted price …. at $ 279 it’s a must buy if it’s true!
Yes, I think you are right there ($ 373 is the already discounted price for the MSRP). . My mistake. $ 329 is still great.
