Personally, I’m looking for a new laptop, and was considering picking up a Chromebook. However, this thread can serve as a discussion thread about Chrome OS and the hardware that is available for it.
A few questions to consider before moving on:
Should I get a Chromebook with an ARM processor, or an Intel one?
Do I really need a Chromebook in the first place?
Do you use Chromebooks, and if so, what recommendations do you have?
OK, now that you have those questions in mind, here is the low down on my situation:
I recently had a laptop die on me, and I don’t really wanna spend the money on hardware that I won’t ever fully utilize. Hence, the idea of Chromebook has slowly grown on me.
The only thing I’ll use this thing for is probably just browsing the web, Runescape (Mobile version on the Google Play Store), and the occasional productivity stuff (basic word processing, etc)
Something with over 128GB of fast storage would be preferable, but I don’t really think I’ll need much more than that. And battery life over 6 hours would be great, and should be realistic given the power efficiency of these devices. Also, I don’t wanna spend over $400 on a Chromebook. Much more than that, you’re looking at a half decent Windows laptop.
