There is no better indication of whether a product is going to be successful than to see how quickly it moves off the shelves. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet, which was originally released in the USA sold out overnight.
People living in the UK have been eagerly waiting for the Chromebook Ideapad 2-in-1 to be available to buy. Well, the good news is that it has finally gone on sale on the Lenovo website. It’s also available at Curry’s PC World with double the storage.
However, no sooner is it available in the UK it has sold out. Both on the Lenovo website and at Curry’s PC World. So if you were lucky enough to get your hands on one; I hope you’re enjoying your purchase. If you were not quick enough, then it looks like you’ll have to wait a little longer.
If you’re living in the USA you can currently get your hands on the Lenovo 2-in-1 Chromebook at Best Buy. This deal also includes double the amount of storage, so it’s good to see additional models with better specs are already reaching the retailers.
THIS IS POSITIVE NEWS FOR CHROME OS
Although it’s frustrating when you’ve been waiting to get your hands on something. Only to find it has sold out as soon as it becomes available. It’s actually very good news. It’s a very good indication that people are showing a huge amount of interest in the latest Chrome OS tablet.
I’m feeling very positive about Chrome OS tablets. They offer a different type of versatility to a Chromebook. They both do the same job but are different enough to attract attention from different buyers.
I’ve recently reviewed the Pixel Slate Chrome OS tablet, which I’m happy to say once you’ve updated the Chrome OS to the latest version. That all of the bugs that caused a problem for Chrome OS tablets have been fixed.
Even though it’s become pretty hard to get your hands on a Pixel Slate. They are still selling well both in the UK and USA. Now the same thing is happening with the Lenovo Ideapad 2-in-1. This surely shows the Chrome OS tablet is about to take off.
WHAT WILL THE FUTURE BRING
I’m 100% behind the idea this is now the time for Chrome OS tablets. We’ve seen the huge success of the Chromebook over the last couple of years. How great will it be if we see the same for tablets as well?
There is a much better understanding of what Chrome OS offers now. I’ve read many reviews from customers on retail websites. It’s really nice to see that we have seen a shift from “you can’t use MS office” to “I love this laptop”.
It really shows that people have gone out and started to read up on Chrome OS and what it can offer. Although you can now buy higher spec Chromebooks. A great selling point for the Chromebook is that it still provides excellent value for money.
I’m hoping what we see in the next year or two is a number of manufacturers deciding to take a slice of the Chrome OS tablet market. This is what we’ll need to see happen for Chrome OS tablets to become a success.
We’re a long way off Chrome OS tablets being as popular as the Chromebook. However, they sure do have the potential to grab the attention of a different type of crowd. People who want a tablet over a laptop, but also want the convenience of attaching a keyboard and getting an instant laptop experience.
