Comparison: Lenovo Duet Chromebook VS Apple iPad 7

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

The lenovo dirt chromebook promises a fantastic value it offers a desktop glass browser a keyboard android and linux app support as well as a stylus option we get all of that for under 300 but how well does it compete in real life against the ipad 7 which has been the best value so far i'm anja from mynexcepter.com and that's what we will discuss in this ipad 7 with the stuart chromebook comparison before we started don't forget to subscribe to this channel i'm reviewing

Pretty much every tablet that gets released all from chrome os to android to ipad os and windows tablets of course let's start with their design and build quality regarding this the lenovo dot chromebook and apple ipad 7 are quite similar not perfect both have some downsides but overall they do feel like well-made tablets the ipad 7 is made of aluminum and its premium feeling it just does not look as high-end because it has the old design with huge black bezels

And the home button on the bottom on a positive note it does have the touch id fingerprint scanner which works great the lenovo does not have a fingerprint scanner and no facial recognition on the dot chromebook the biggest part of the body is metal two but part of the tablet is covered by a blue plastic it certainly looks unique the transition from the body to the screen is not as smooth as on the ipad but it's not too much of a deal with 483 grams the apple tablet is a bit

Heavier than the 450 grams of the lenovo it's also a tiny bit thicker with 7.5 millimeters compared to 7.3 millimeters both have connectors for optional keyboards but the ipad is the only one with the headphone jack while the lenovo has a usb c port the ipad has the old lightning connector a micro sd card slot is missing on both let's check out the keyboards a huge advantage of the duet chromebook is that the keyboard is included

At no extra charge that means that with a price tag of 279 dollars it's much cheaper for the ipad alone you will have to pay 329 dollars the official smart keyboard costs another 159 i'm only going to compare their official keyboards because in both cases you could connect almost every other keyboard anyways overall the apple smart keyboard feels a bit better made it's mostly plastic of course but a higher end one folded up the keyboard protects the screen but

The back is unprotected this keyboard folio has a stand feature built in but you can use it at just one angle i typed a lot with the apple keyboard and it's usable but certainly not great the keys don't have a lot of travel there's no background light and no touchpad either i always described it as a good compromise of comfort and portability it's a fine tablet keyboard but if you ride all day i would use a proper desktop class keyboard the lenovo keyboard feels

Cheaper and it's a different design there's a back cover with an integrated kickstand included which you attach to the tablet magnetically while it's made of a much cheaper feeling plastic it works well and has one huge advantage unlike with the ipad you can stand up the direct chromebook in lots of different angles that's awesome the keyboard part attaches magnetically and is made of plastic too folded up it protects the screen so that both sides of the tablet are

Protected now even though the keyboard is made of a cheaper feeling material the keyboard itself is better here the keys do have a proper travel which is more comfortable we don't get a background light either but there's a decent touchpad built in so overall i think the lenovo offers a better keyboard i mean especially if you consider the price it's a much better keyboard value but keep in mind that

Both keyboards are smaller than your standard desktop keyboard if you're working at home at your desk i would always connect a bigger one using bluetooth i like that the two speakers of the lenovo are located at the top and are separate from each other that means you can hear a real stereo separation which is not the case with the ipad apple placed both speakers on one of the shorter sides so the sound is coming from just one side when watching movies

Even though that's a downside the ipad speakers do sound much better overall the sound is clearer fuller has a better bass and is just more pleasing to listen to the dual chromebook features a 10.1 inch ips screen with an aspect ratio of 16 by 10 and a resolution of by 1200 pixels the epid7 has a 10.2 inch ips screen with 2160 by 1620 pixels both screens are quite similar but if you look closely the ipad 7 is a bit

Sharper it's also a bit brighter with 500 nits compared to 400 nits viewing angles are good on both so the ipad screen is a bit better regarding most aspects at least a bit with one big exception it does not have a laminated screen that means there's a small visible air gap below the touchscreen the screen of the lenovo is fully laminated which looks nicer now the non-laminated screen is not too much of an issue unless you want to use the apple

Pencil when using that stylus you don't always have the feeling of directly writing on that screen because there's an air gap in between besides that the apple pencil works fantastic it's pressure sensitive and is well made and you can write and draw with it very precisely as long as you ignore that air gap you can charge it using the lightning port of the tablet you can use the usi stylus with the lenovo door chromebook the only one i was able to buy is the hp

Usi stylus it works okay you charge it using a usbc cable and it's pressure sensitive just like the apple pencil here you are touching the screen directly which is a plus point but with that being said if you write fast it's not as precise as the apple pencil is handwritten text does not always look as clear and the drawing often lags behind the screen a bit both are not huge issues but something you should definitely know about

So to sum up both tablets are not perfect regarding their pens but in both cases they are nice additional features one advantage of the ipad remains that you can use the apple pencil with lots of more apps than you will find in the google play store if you want to make super fine and precise drawings you should invest a bit more money in a tablet with better pen support though let's check out the internal hardware and performance the lenovo dual chromebook features a mediatek helio

P60t octa core processor with 4 gigabytes of ram and a 64 gigabyte or 128 gigabyte internal storage there's no lte version at the moment inside the apple ip7 on the other hand runs an apple a10 fusion processor with three gigabytes of ram you can choose between 32 gigabyte and 128 gigabyte of internal storage and lte is an option too benchmarks show that the ip7 is much faster than pretty much all regards that's to be expected

Because the ipad 7 is faster than every mid-range android tablet as well my gaming test confirms this while you can play games like pubg mobile and call of duty on the droid chromebook they run with high settings only on the ipad 7 you can set the graphics to very high in both cases and they do look a bit better apple's tablet is a fantastic device to play for tonight with too which is not possible on the chromebook with other tasks the ipad performs a bit better too you can switch between apps faster and

Even render videos in an okay speed but if you just want to do some office work and watch some youtube you won't notice any major differences between the two now the operating systems are very different of course the dual chromebook is running chrome os which is promised to get updates until june of 2028 it means that it will be updated much longer than any android tablet will be and it might get longer updates than the ip7 as well

Because the a10 fusion platform is a couple of years old already with chrome os you get a desktop class browser which performs very well and is great for web apps like google docs and gmail at the same time you can use android apps from the google play store which usually perform great too i installed a couple of games as well as adobe lightroom and all of that runs fine in addition to those android apps you can also install traditional linux desktop apps like libreoffice for instance

Now for that you've got to use the terminal and to want to install and use those you probably have to get a kind of geeky but it can be awesome for students who want to become a developer for instance an advantage of chrome os is that you can use it pretty much like a desktop pc once you attach a keyboard and mouse at least you can open apps in free floating windows for instance that's what chrome os was developed for originally all those tablet features have been added later the ipad 7 is running ipad

Os which has been developed with tablets in mind from the beginning in fact as a pure tablet operating system ipad os is much better thought through you can navigate the operating system with gestures very fast it's easy very stable and there's a huge selection of apps that are optimized for tablets exactly this is a big advantage of ipad os the selection of apps that are optimized for touch screens and tablets in particular is much larger than the google play

Store can offer you can choose between lots of notes apps drawing apps thousands of great games music apps and even very professional ones like adobe photoshop and affinity photo you can use fantastic video editors as well as apps like microsoft word and excel now safari is a fantastic browser too which has been quite heavily updated in the last couple of months by now you can use it with web apps like google docs and they do run as good as they do in

Chrome os so you do get a desktop class browser now too but you can't use the same extensions of course ipad os is lacking behind a bit if you want to use your tablet as a traditional computer it has been improved a lot with recent updates multitasking works fantastic now we get a decent files app and you can connect the mouse or touchpad and even attach external storage like ssds but if you want to get super geeky you do get more options with chrome os

I mean you can install linux apps the ipad can't beat that if you care about battery life you will get a longer runtime with the ipad 7. when watching hd youtube videos at maximum brightness the apple tablet lasts 5 hours while the dual chromebook goes dark after 4.5 hours keep in mind that the ipad has a brighter screen so its battery life is even better than this test shows well that's the end of my comparison of the apple ipad 7 with the lenovo dual chromebook

I think both tablets offer a fantastic value which one is better for you depends on how much money you want to spend and especially on what you want to do with a tablet i think the ipad 7 is the better entertainment tablet it's much faster for playing games as better speakers for watching movies and it has a much bigger selection of apps in general that are optimized for tablets if you're looking for a cheap tablet with pen support i think the ipad is a

Bit better choice too it's not perfect but at least you're getting lots of great apps for the stylus and if you want to get some office work done you can do that with apps like microsoft word but you will have to pay much more for the keyboard the lenovo dual chromebook is a better choice if you're looking for an affordable tablet with keyboard i think the value is fantastic if you want to do some office work maybe for school or just while traveling

And sure at the same time you can play some games and watch movies all of that is possible just not as good as with the ipad for some the linux support is a fantastic feature too all right that's the end of my comparison between the lenovo dual chromebook and the apple ipad 7. if you have any questions write them down below in the comments i'm nj from minextable.com thanks for watching and see you next time
