Re: Lenovo Chromebook Duet, or Duet Chromebook in North America

2020-02-10, 11:57 AM

Hi, this Chromebook/tablet ticks so may boxes for me but the one thing that bothers me is the that it only has Bluetooth 4.2.  I have checked some of the early reviews and the spec sheet that is available and they all refer to it having Bluetooth 4.2, which for a device being touted as a media consumption device is a bit of a let down.

 

With the push towards wireless headphones and the lack of a headphone jack and only one USB C port (so you can't charge and use wired headphones at the same time) not having Bluetooth 5 is a curious decision.  Also there is the fact that audio sync on video and much better with Bluetooth 5.

 

I would happily pay more if the device had Bluetooth 5, in fact I would probably pre-order at the earliest opportunity.

 

Is my understanding of this specification correct and if so are there any plans to change it before release?

 

Thanks.

Can it stream Netflix in high definition? Most Lenovo devices only allow SD.

All Chromebooks support SD only. Full HD is available on the Pixel Slate in the web browser but not in the app. Other Chromebooks might be the same.

Lenovo Chromebook Duet, or Duet Chromebook in North America

The combination of the Duet, the USI Stylus, and Bluetooth Headphones is an amazing blend that all work well together. So glad that we found the Lenovo Duet Chromebook and I would highly recommend it for those looking for both a great value and high quality Chromebook for their kids!
