The Chromebook has been around for nine years now and many people are starting to see just how beneficial they really are. They’re lightweight, cheap and perfect for people who don’t need a lot of computing power for their everyday tasks. College students and school kids have really taken to using them, with 60% of schools in the USA choosing to buy them for their students.
These nifty little computers aren’t just for kids though. Plenty of adults who need a home computer for light use when they aren’t at work are also turning to the Chromebook. If you aren’t in need of high-end graphics or plenty of RAM, why wouldn’t you go for the cheaper option of one of these devices?
Chromebooks have also evolved over the years to become a lot more sophisticated. They now cater for a wider range of users who have different needs. They’re no longer just a cheaper option for basic use. Some of these devices are impressive computers in their own right.
So, which are the top for 2020? Let’s take a look:
Google Pixelbook Go
It stands to reason that Google would be able to make one of the top versions of a laptop that runs on their own operating system. This is the latest version and it is a good one. The battery life is one of the top selling points, as is the ‘hush’ keyboard. The device is also full of premium features that users have come to expect from the Pixelbook range, but this version is a much more affordable price.
Lenovo IdeaPad Duet
The two-in-one design from Lenovo gives you plenty of flexibility and great portability. The device can be used just like a regular laptop or it can be flipped right round to be used like a tablet. The battery life is also highly impressive – giving a user almost 22 hours in one charge. On the downside, the keyboard is not that great to use and the trackpad is a little tricky. However, it is the best option in its budget price range.
Acer Chromebook 314
This one is probably a winner in the value for money category. The device packs quite the punch in terms of tech and comes in at a very reasonable price. The graphics card and the screen are excellent, giving one of the best viewing experiences on a Chromebook to date. It also backs that up with a very long battery life so you can stream movies for hours, when you aren’t working on it that is.
Asus Chromebook Flip C343
When it comes to Chromebooks, Asus has been one of the top manufacturers from day one. What’s great about this one is it offers a 14 inch screen and yet is almost the same size as most 13 inch devices. This is a big trend on laptops now and Asus has nailed the design. This device also offers the two-in-one design, allowing it to flip into tablet mode.
