It is powered by a 42Whr battery with a claimed battery life of up to 15 hours. There is support for Rapid Charge to help you refuel it quickly. It comes with a pre-bundled keyboard and kickstand with an optional stylus. There are four speakers, two USB Type-C 3.0 ports, and a Pogo pin.
The base model of the Chromebook Duet 5 with 4GB/64GB configuration is priced at $429 in the United States. It will be sold in Abyss Blue and Storm Grey color options. It will go on sale sometime starting October 2021.
