The Complete Chromebook Guide – What They Are And Which Are The Best

hp-chromebook-11

If you have discovered Chromebooks recently, and want to learn more about them, you’ve come to the right place.  We will give you all the information you need on what Chromebooks are and what Chromebooks are the best right now.

The Basics

Starting off, let’s make sure that we all understand what a Chromebook actually is. If you are using a Laptop PC at home or at work, it  should’t be too hard to relate, and if you’re using Google’s Chrome browser on top of that, it will seem even more familiar. Basically, a Chromebook is a laptop device that operates almost entirely based on Google’s online services, so you will need an internet connection to use a Chromebook, as the only offline features it offers are Documents and other similar apps that will quickly  sync to Google’s cloud services once you go online. The device will use cloud storage, of which Google supplies 100 GB when you buy your device. This substitutes the usage of big hard drives and processors required for running programs locally on traditional laptop devices. While not for everybody, the Chromebook certaintly has its own customer range. However, if you’re looking for a machine for playing games or do consuming work such as graphic desing, Chromebook might not be for you. The whole concept behind it is using the internet for storage and apps rather than the local device, which means the power it can generate is reduced significantly, and it comes with only 16 GB of local storage. Also, compatibility might be an issue when using a Chromebook, in a sense that it does not support all apps ( Like iTunes and other Apple stuff), and other devices such as printers will not always support the Chromebook.

The Best Available

If you got to this part, it means that you were probably intrigued by what a Chromebook is, and now you want to know which Chromebook models are the best at the moment. We will take a closer look at a few Chromebooks and see what differentiates them . In no specific order, let us begin:

  1. HP Chromebook 11

Taking a look at HP’s Chromebook 11, we see that they have decided to settle for lower quality building materials, but instead went the extra mile for the screen, which is stunning, for a device of this kind. The performance that this device can push also feels a bit lackluster, especially when you consider the fact that other newer Chromebook releases are just around the corner. You can get this HP device for under $300.

  1. Acer Chromebook R11

Acer’s take on the Chromebook device, the R11, comes with a nifty little feature that allows it to be positioned in a variety of ways thanks to it’s incorporrated flexible hindges. This is pretty much its selling point, and if you’re not looking for extraordinary performance from a device, it might just do the job, but it certainly doesn’t perform as neat as it looks, its performance being hindered by some quite sluggish gaps in processing quality. It is recommend however that you limit the multitasking on this device to just a couple duties at once, unless you want to be utterly disapointed. For $280, you can snatch this device from Amazon.com.

  1. Asus C300M

What this device does best is incorporate a decent running device into a very light casing, and gives it a large screen, which is welcomed by those that enjoy not squinting at their device’s display. There are other Chromebooks that perform better, but this model from Asus takes its pride in being good when it comes to manuverability and ease of access, not that the other Chromebooks are complicated to use, by any extent. This Asus Chromebook is  around $270 on Amazon.com.

  1. Asus Chromebook Flip C100PA

Another Asus product, the Flip C100PA is a little bit of a counterpart to the C300M described above, in the sense that it performs a lot better, and could compete in this department with anyother Chromebook there is, but at the same time it lacks the latter’s appealing design , although the manufacturer managed to make it feel worthwile and of good quality. It has a flippable screen, which is kind of easy to mess up and give the device an overall cheap feel, which is not the case here. The Flip C100PA is laso a neat travel companion, with a battery that lasts a long time. Its smaller screen also permits it to be placed comfortably in your car and enhance your traveling experience. This device is available for about $270 on Amazon.com right now.

  1. Dell Chromebook 11

Even though we didn’t present these Chromebooks in any specific order, we did manage to save the best for last, and that is the Dell Chromebook 11, which has a little bit of everything  the others offerd. Let’s take a closer look at what that menas. First of all, it performs the best out of the presented devices, offering you a speedy processing experience , making sure you won’t sucumb to the frustrations that come with a slow device. Then there’s also the build quality. This device is simplistic in appearance and sturdy, so reliable, not to mention  it doesn’t feel cheap , which could take from the overall product quality a fair amount. It comes with waterproof safety measures and a long lasting battery that will keep you going both at home and on the road. This one is  a bit over $200 but worht it.

That being said, we’ll let you decide which of these options suits your needs the best, and is the best choice for you.
