This is the cheapest Detachable laptop on the market right now, this is suitable for those who need a cheap, laptop tablet device with the capabilities and features that are serious enough for work and study activities or school from home. This laptop might be a very suitable product for its main specifications. The processor used is the Intel Pentium Silver N5030. Its code name is Gemini Lake 14 nm 4, Core 4 Thread with TDP of only 6 watts. 1.1 GHz Base Clock with Max. Burst Clock at 3.1. Ghz with 4 MB Cache for RAM 8 GB DDR4 2400 MHz Single Channel. This is On board. There is no additional SODIMM slots here for storage, 256, GB, Flash Storage, So it’s not a hard disk anyway for integrated graphics. It uses Intel UHD, Graphics, 605, with 18 Execution Units. The body form factor is Detachable Laptop or a laptop that can be removed from the keyboard. So when removed from the keyboard, The screen unit can be operated like a tablet. Of course, it uses touch screen. The main unit is equipped with a Kickstand as a cantilever. This Kickstand design looks similar to Microsoft Surface. This kickstand can be opened very wide so that the position of the laptop can almost collapse.
If you want to collapse, it of course just close the Kickstand and lay it down like a tablet. Of course, This kickstand is made of metal and is very sturdy when becoming a tablet. This Lenovo IdeaPad Duet, 3i is well suited for watching surfing the web and making presentations to the interlocutor or to clients and with Pen support. Of course, it is also nice to use for pictures in a tablet position like this. When connected to the keyboard, This Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i is ready to use for serious work for typing and so on. For the body material, it is polycarbonate which makes it light design wise, even though it is included in the IdeaPad category. Design and appearance of this Detachable laptop looks luxurious and feels like a premium. Product doesn’t seem like entry level laptop, although the price is affordable for color, it’s, Graphite, Gray or dark grey. The dimensions for this display unit or tablet 24.9 cm long 16.5 cm wide 0.99 cm thick, so it’s really thin for the keyboard unit itself. The thickness is only 0.6 cm for its weight. This is very interesting. This tablet unit is lightweight under 600 grams, 593 grams to be exact, while the keyboard is only 273 grams and the charger is 199 grams. This is a 45 W charger with a USB Type C connector, so you can charge your smartphone too. Its total weight without a charger is 866 grams, including the keyboard and with the charger.
The total is all at more or less 1 kg for the screen. It is a touch screen and supports the use of the Stylus. Unfortunately, the Stylus is not included in the purchase package. Luckily, this laptop can use the Stylus which already supports the Microsoft Pen Protocol, so you can search for any stylus as long as it supports it. Can be used, The screen size is 10.3quot. With a resolution of 1920 x 1200p. Its aspect ratio is 1610. This ratio makes the work area on the screen wider than conventional 169. This is an IPS panel, 100 sRGB, 330 nits. It has a glossy screen surface, which is natural for a touch screen. Screen frame is a bit thick, but, as usual tablets do need a screen frame a bit thick at the edges to hold it with hands for the camera. It is interesting too, because this Detachable laptop is equipped with 2 cameras instead of 1 2 cameras. The front camera is a 720p 30 FPS camera positioned on the top frame facing the user, while the rear camera is a 5MP camera for photos and can be 1080p 30 FPS for video, it is equipped with an autofocus feature. Interestingly, this rear camera can be directly used for scanning documents or whiteboards by using the default camera app from Windows 10. This will be useful for those who need photographs make reports those can be entered directly into the laptop for audio. There are 2 speakers positioned on the right and left side of the screen at the very top Dolby Audio software is available to set the audio profile for the sound quality.
Indeed, because of the narrow space we can’t expect a loud sound and the price too. So the sound quality is ok, just right for the connectors and buttons we can see on the left. There is 1x 3.5 mm Audio Jack. There is a 1x MicroSD slot with a tray that can be used to increase storage capacity as well. Then there are 2 Type C, USB 3.2 Gen.2. This already supports Display Out with the Display Port protocol and already supports Power Delivery too. Meanwhile, on the right side, We can see that there is a Power button and a volume button here to adjust the volume. Of course, for wireless connectivity it uses the Intel Wireless AC, 9560 Wi Fi module. This is Wi, Fi, AC or Wi. Fi 5 Supports Multi User, MIMO, Gigabit, Wi Fi and Bluetooth v5.1 for the keyboard. It comes with a Bluetooth Keyboard Folio. This is a bit strange.. Bluetooth Folio Keyboard. Why Bluetooth? This keyboard can’t only be used when attached to the screen unit, but can also be used when, apart and without cables, using the Bluetooth connectivity. So you can type while sitting on the sofa comfortably while the unit or tablet screen can be placed on the table in front of you on the side of the keyboard. There is a switch to turn off on and perform pairing keyboard. Battery capacity can be checked in Windows when it is connected with Bluetooth connectivity, keyboard buttons still use the typical Lenovo IdeaPad design, but has undergone a slight layout change.
Several buttons are adjusted in size to fit the size of this tiny laptop. One of the button layout changes is F1 F12 function, keys, which are now integrated with the number keys. Adaptation may be needed for those of you who are accustomed to using separate function keys. Unfortunately, this keyboard is not equipped with a backlit. The touchpad is aligned with the Spacebar and the right Alt key, although it’s not perfectly aligned with the Spacebar. The touchpad still doesn’t interfere with typing comfort because the palm does not easily enter the touchpad area. Interestingly, of course, it still uses the Windows. Precision Driver now, let’s see the performance as usual. We use Cinebench R15, not because this laptop is intended for 3D, rendering no, but only to check the consistency of its performance and the extent to which it is consistent. We see the burst score on the Pentium Silver N5030. It seems that it wants to reach 2′ points, which is close to the Core i3 7020U score, which ranges around 240 points, while the sustained performance for Pentium Silver N5030 is in the range of around 170 points. This is already within our expectations. Considering the cooling system does not use a fan, but it sustains there. Interestingly, if you are in a room that is cold enough, the sustained performance can still be maintained above 200 points interesting, but that is, if you point the air conditioner to blow into it. So far, we have had no problems with this kind of performance, because what matters is the form factor.
Meanwhile, while using the battery sustained performance is in the range of 160 points indicating that the performance drops only slightly compared to when the charger is used, surely someone will still ask quothow about gamingquot The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i is not a laptop designed for gaming. Therefore, we don’t really expect the gaming performance, but we will try some games that the result is like this now turn to testing the storage media with CrystalDiskMark. We see that read it at 174 MBs and write at 1′ MBs. It is still faster than a conventional Hard Disk for laptops that are usually after some time of use. It will reach about 100 MBs, and the most important thing is with Flash Memory like this Seek. Time is still much faster rather than a Hard Disk, and this is what will make when you click an application open faster. How about the battery This battery has a capacity of 30 Wh. We test with a brightness level at 50, 25 volume and the keyboard is attached for video playback. We can get 9 hours, 15 minutes, ok, results and surfing the web with Chrome. We can 8 hours. This is a relatively good endurance, considering that the battery capacity is indeed small for charging within 1 hour, we can charge 48 and for the full. It takes us 2 hours, 45 minutes. This charging time is still quite ok, because it’s under 3 hours actually for battery life, It’s claim that it can be extended by activating the Conservation Mode feature in the Lenovo Vantage software.
This will make the battery only charge around 55 60 capacity when the charger remains plugged in for working temperature. We can see when we load Cinebench R15, which actually makes no sense for this laptop. We load 3D rendering benchmarks. However, even with this heavy load, the highest temperature achieved by this Pentium Silver N5030 only reaches 72C, whereas the IdeaPad Duet 3i uses a passive cooling system. Without a fan, cooling system like this makes Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i operates without producing any noise at all and keep in mind. It only happens if you use a software that doesn’t make sense to run on a laptop like this. If you use it for surfing the web, checking email watching movies and so on, the heat will barely be felt here. The surface temperature we check with a thermal imaging device. We run again Cinebench R15. On the back side, the hottest area is on the upper side of the Kickstand, with temperatures up to 43C. Meanwhile, on the front side, the hottest area is under the front camera, with the temperature around ‘ 40C keyboard, of course, very cold according to room temperature. Only because it’s separate from the processor in normal activities, more often than not, it will be felt that temperatures this high will never be reached and for sure what we touch most of it is the keyboard, so it won’t feel hot at all for the price, The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3 is sold at blibli.
com with a price range of IDR 7599000. This, of course includes the Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft, Office, Home amp, Student 2019, worth 1.8 million, which is active forever and there’s. The Lenovo 10quot Laptop Ultra Slim Sleeve, which has been in front of me all this time. There is also a bonus purchase of a Logitech B170 Wireless Mouse, while the supply lasts. Lenovo IdeaPad, Duet 3i is covered with a 2 year warranty period. Things to note that this Detachable form factor makes it indeed less comfortable to type on a lap, although maybe this is mostly used on the table anyway, then for Single Channel RAM, it does make the IGP not too fast, but again, if it’s, just for watching surfing The web, no problem, if it’s for playing games, maybe it’s a bit lacking, but we don’t play games on laptops like this, usually make sure you have a USB C Hub device. If you want to connect multiple devices to this laptop and the good thing is, there are already 2x USB Type C ports, so this makes it easy one can be used to charge another one can be plugged into the Hub to connect to a variety of other Devices from the point of interest, we can see that the design and appearance looks elegant and luxurious, not impressed by a cheap, laptop. Its Detachable form factor keeps its body light weight when used as a tablet, because the keyboard can be removed.
Of course, The keyboard can also be operated separately because it has Bluetooth connectivity. Meanwhile, the processor performance is quite ok for this processor class. Processor temperature is also still within safe limits, even though the cooling system does not use a fan. Meanwhile, the IPS touchscreen is 100 sRGB. With this 1610 aspect, ratio it’s very pleasant to look at and this screen do you remember earlier You can use the Stylus if you want to add a Stylus. The battery is still economical, even though the capacity is also small, which of course makes the body light. The rear camera is also interesting because the ability is quite capable. It already has Wi Fi AC, Bluetooth. V5.1. You get Office that is worth 1.8 million, which is active forever, and the price is quite attractive for a Detachable Laptop.
