This model has N4020 Celeron, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB emmc drive, runs Windows 11 Home. Fast enough for general use on internet: email, Edge browser, web searches, reading news including papers, videos including YouTube. Office works fine, too. Enough storage for programs and files, but not huge picture or sound libraries, but can add microSD for more storage. Screen is clear with good text definition, adequate brightness and response. Two USB-C ports for peripherals and charging, exterior volume control button and sound output round out features on tablet. Comes with detachable keyboard. Overall a nice inexpensive portable device for reading the news, online chores, and light homework. Battery life 8+ hrs. Recommend buying a cover or case to protect edges and corners; seems durable but it’s made of plastic. I also updated the bios at the Lenovo site.

The restrictions that Windows 11 puts on this product, is too restrictive to be useful. Removing the “S” mode removes the restrictions but when a Windows 11 update gets loaded, you can’t get logged in.

Great little laptop for light tasks. Would recommend if you can get it on sale.

Did not work right out of the box – Not at all impressed with the keyboard – I returned this and bought a Surface Go3.

Performs as expected. A bit slow booting. Used mainly for browsing, reading, streaming. Tweaking had to be done to optimize streaming as the refresh rate was set at 50%. Operates best with a more expensive laptop dongle. Nice complement of ports on the device. Duet makes it easy to handle.

Microsoft’s Surface Go 3 is only $20 more, but doesn’t come with a keyboard; a third party magnetically attaching (but Bluetooth connecting) keyboard/screen cover will cost you another $35 or so.
Both have rear kickstands which is HUGE for laptop use. Both have excellent IPS screens for Netflix. You have to keep an eye on the Go with only 64gb of storage and this Duet 3i has 128gb (for example, I manually clean up larger update files) while you can be a little sloppy with the Duet 3i). The processor in the Go 3 is almost as fast as the prior generation m3. The processor in the Duet 3i is on par with the processor in the earlier Go 1 and Go 2 base models. 4gb of RAM is enough on all of those and these. I noticed no improvements on my 4gb vs 8gb low end laptops. A similarly equipped Chomebook is zippier but has other limitations.
I recommend this now discontinued Duet 3i for pure bang for the book. The slightly wider keyboard helps. The buy-in cost is less of a sticker shock than the Go 3 with official keyboard. Either will serve in classroom for notes and research, plus very good Netflix. Most budget laptops have lousy video.
Note: I’ve tried iPads with keyboards, but iPad keyboards with built in trackpads are still rare and the lack of a trackpad is too limiting.
Finally, Windows 11 assures next gen security hardware.

Nice little tablet–small, light weight, great docking… but either the one I got was defective or the internal wi-fi adapter is just terrible in this tablet. I did a speed test on a network I typically get 70-100mbps with and this tablet only clocked in at 7mbps. I can’t run any of the software I was planning to on this machine.
