The specs at Staples website mentions the keyboard is bilingual.

However, the specs at Lenovo website did not mention this. See below:
https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/IdeaPad ... ZA6F0028CA

Wondering whether the keyboard is indeed bilingual.

Edit: On the Lenovo website, keyboard is specified as "Non-backlit, English (CA)". Does this means the keyboard is bilingual?

Generally for Lenovo - when the product code ends in CA (e.g. ZA6F0028CA), it means the keyboard is bilingual

ZA6F0031US is the non-bilingual counterpart
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

No, this is chromebook. Windows is technically possible with QEMU but not useful. Your best bet is a used windows pc or raspberry pi 4 with windows arm build.

It has been a year old however no one else has trumped the Duet yet. Asus is releasing a similar Chromebook this year but strangely it's a little inferior for a newer product.

Performance is solid for a sub $300 device,, way better value than any Android tablet.

This has USB-C and no headphone jack. Either that or they left it off just my tablet.

No sd card, isn't it a problem with only 64gb ?

Wow new low price. I got this for about $300 a couple months ago.

Great little chromebook. Bilingual keyboard doesn't bother me at all to be honest, I don't know why it's such a dealbreaker.
