One of the rare Chromebooks that manages to combine premium specs and an affordable price. It can easily handle all your web browsing needs, including streaming 1080p60 Youtube videos or having 20+ tabs open. It has a great Full HD screen, USB-C charging support and a solid build quality. All that while coming in under $500. See More
Has a firm, 360-degree bendable lid with sturdy, not too wobbly hinges and the 2.5-pound lightweight base makes this Chromebook very portable. You can also turn the screen and use the laptop in three different "standing" modes (laptop, stand, tent, tablet) where the last three modes completely hide the keyboard. See More
The speakers are located on the bottom corners of the laptop and aren’t optimized properly. When used in Laptop mode and placed on a solid surface like a table, the sound mumbles and becomes quiet. It does get better when the Chromebook is positioned in Tent mode, but apart from that sound can be difficult to hear outside the room where the Chromebook is located. See More
The stylus and the glossy display are ideal for Android apps. The screen makes the games, and other apps look beautiful while the pen allows using apps with a different approach. Google Play Store itself runs without slowdowns; therefore app browsing is quite enjoyable. See More
The display is top notch and has a surprisingly excellent resolution (2400x1600), making the image quality very sharp. Brightness levels on the glossy screen are ideal too. With 400 nits of brightness, it’s even brighter than some powerful full-fledged laptops. See More
The Samsung Chromebook Pro is equipped with an Intel Core m3 processor, 32GB of eMMC storage, and 4GB of RAM. That’s plenty of powers for common tasks such as web browsing, editing documents, and multitasking. Most people will probably find the performance that this Chromebook offers adequate. See More
The trackpad is very accurate and responsive. Even though it evokes a tapping sound every time you press it, it's because of the material the whole laptop is built in and not the trackpad's fault which overall is pretty good compared to other Chromebooks in this price range. See More
The Dell Chromebook 13 is probably the best Chromebook as far as price to performance ratio goes. With 4GBs of RAM and an Intel Celeron CPU it should offer more than enough power for most people's day-to-day operation on a laptop. Other Chromebooks at this price usually have smaller memory or a weaker CPU which translates in lower performance. See More
Most Thinkpads have excellent keyboards and this Chromebook is no exception. The keys are slightly curved inwards to aid typing and there's a nice springiness to them. This makes it easy to type for long uninterrupted periods, making this Chromebook an excellent choice for people who need to type a lot. See More
