Chromebooks can be seen as a recognition of the amount of time we spend online. These lightweight and relatively cheap laptops have been developed to be known by those of us who are already using the Chrome browser on our Windows or macOS computers.
While the first Chromebooks were fairly limited in how they could be used outside of browsing, email and YouTube videos, that has slowly changed. With the advent of increasingly sophisticated online applications and the increasing popularity of online applications, Chromebooks have become a practical alternative to daily computing, changing work and even playing some (limited) games. Although Chromebooks are largely meant to be used online, they offer a reasonable amount of storage space and apps that can be used even if you are not currently connected.
In addition, you can now use many of your favorite Android apps on your Chromebook. There are still decent models available for less than $ 300, but you can now get faster, higher quality laptops (such as the Pixelbook line from Google) with better quality components, more storage and more memory.
