  • The display itself worths an additional money to buy the Duet
    Display: 11.6" HD (1366x768) TN 250nits Anti-glare

    • The Slim 3 says: 14" FHD

      • Display: 14" FHD (1920x1080) TN 220nits Anti-glare

        the most important bits here. TN 220nit means this is a screen that will make you want to throw it out in a week

        TN has poor contrast and viewing angles
        220nit is really dim

        this is essentially a "hello optometrist" kind of screen

        whoever drafted specifications for this model needs to be forced to use this laptop for two years exclusively

        • Thanks for the feedback, shabaka. I've looked at so many budget models lately. This sounds like the s340 screen then, which looked terrible in the display room.

  • FHD, hmm, wondering if I was a bit hasty grabbing a Flex 5i for $420-ish the other day.
    If this Slim 3 has FHD display it might have been a better value machine as an intro / trial of Chromebooks.


    • I think you made a good decision.

      What does the slim 3 do better then the flex 5

      From what I can see -

      Screen is much better on the flex 5
      Cpu better
      Better io
      360* tablet mode

    • Flex 5 was right decision. Got mine last week and was impressed by screen quality. Pretty speedy too. Have a HP laptop with older i5 CPU and Flex 5 browsing is way smoother. Have used TN panels and they are terrible so stay away.

  • 220 nit screen is very dim, using cheaper TN lcd means for the best (still dim) image, will need to be viewed from directly in front, from any other angle image will be increasingly poor/dimmer/wrong colour etc.
    1.61kg may be heavy.

  • Good as a replacement laptop? Currently have Acer aspire e15. It's a celeron and feels slowww. Just for internet browsing some work on Microsoft office etc. If not any other recommendations?
