      If you don't think it is a hot deal, are you able to elaborate on what you would consider a better deal?
      The shopper inside me is curious.

      I know people using it as a full time laptop.
      Runs all the android apps aswell.
      Not sure about any gaming potential but useful for most of the other work

    • I doubt the presence of a real SSD in this product.
      The 64Gb offered by Staples isn't SSD. No SSD on Lenovo web site neither for both models...

      My main computer is a desktop computer with two monitors and my second computer is a Chromebook. I'm typing on this right now. It's the perfect companion for anything web related. My Chromebook's weight is 1.5 pound, try to beat this with a normal laptop, even the "compact" ones. It's like having a tablet with a real keyboard, with a bigger screen than most tablets. I think the battery on mine can go for 10+ hours. Chrome OS has very little overhead on top of Chrome, so it will use less power than a Windows laptop. If you need this for Windows specific apps, then it's not a good choice for sure.

      A "hot deal is a sale price reduced from regular retail. This is simply a great priced new product.

      The better question is what are their limitations?

    • I did some research as per discussion on another board

      Some people seem to have misconception of Chromebook, including me. It actually changed a lot for the past few years. If you are patient enough you can even write light code with it under Linux

      Its major con to me is limited functionality in their MS office suite

    • I was eyeing on this to replace my mipad 4+, but a review I read somewhere mentioned Duet chromebook need to be restarted every 1 or 2 days to ensure its smooth experience, the review also mentioned it will get lagging when openeing several apps.

      P60T is basically performed in 660 level, not a very powerful processor

      I had awful experience with Lenovo's Lepad back then.

      It's not a hot deal because it's basically MSRP. It's been that price on best buys site for months. I've had a pre-order in for quite some time already.

      Yes it's a good chromebook. It's a great value. But it's not a deal.

      They're best for a daily driver if 95% of your use is web browsing, emailing. As it can run Android apps, you could do photo editing, some games. Chrome apps are pretty bleh, you'll just end up using all things Google and if you're happy with that, that's all you need really.

      Big selling point for me personally, instant on, full day battery, snappy performance and OS does its own thing with updates etc. My current chromebook is 4 years old and rock solid, I thought it would last only 2 years maybe 3. Best $199 purchase ever.

      $399 for the Duet is regular price I believe. I have my eye on it as my next but the Lenovo FLex 5 looks good too for more. May end up with Duet but I'm in no rush, every year i keep an eye in case my chromebook dies but no sign of dying at all...wallet safe.
