Admittedly, even the best Android tablets aren't even in the same league as any iPad. So it's good to see ChromeOS becoming adept as a tablet OS. I expect my next tablet to be a Lenovo Chromebook Duet 3. Can't beat the versatility and price combo.
You should have bought the lenovo 10e. It actually got down to $79 IIRC from lenovo on ebay.
Most of the complaints, especially about the "chunkiness" were ridiculously overblown. I got a 10e and an amazon fire 10 plus, which has fairly similar hardware. Both are so similar in size and appearance that if they're off, I have to look for the amazon logo on the back to tell the difference. Ports are even in the same places. Only difference is the Fire tab has a microsd slot while the 10e does not.
However, both will work with a fast usb microflash drive. I have a Samsung Fit drive, and that works fine in the usb-c charging port on either. Pretty darn fast and more removable media than one could ever want.
The screen isn't exactly what I'd call "glossy" either.
This was a case where folks who bought a more expensive tablet tried to find reasons why there was a problem with the $99 one so they didn't feel bad about overpaying. I was shocked when I received mine and saw NONE of the reported "issues" with it.
Where else can you find a good performing extra screen with its own built in processing, with android/web/chrome/linux dev all in one for $100?
The 10e as an Education part also has updates for 6 more years, which is actually longer than I'll want to use it.
