toshiba-chromebook-2

#1: Toshiba Chromebook 2

Overview: For the price, the Toshiba Chromebook 2 might seem like a steep investment, but wrapped up in that slim, silver package are the specs of a top-of-the-line Chromebook. Featuring a brilliantly vivid 1080p screen, a nifty backlit keyboard and the option of an i3 processor configuration, there’s little to complain about here. Although, we could do with a matte display option – just food for thought.

 

ProsCons
Sharp 1080p IPS display.Disappointing battery life in testing.
Snappy Intel Core i3 processor.Mismatched casing parts.
Thin and light.A bit pricey.

#2: Acer Chromebook 15

Overview: If you’re mulling over the Acer Chromebook 15 for your next notebook, then you’d better have big ideas. Compared to most other Chromebooks, this one has more screen real estate, more processing power and unsurprisingly costs more as a result. Specifically geared toward students and teachers – thanks to its durable frame and gorgeous visuals – the Acer Chromebook 15 is fine for any consumer who doesn’t mind the extra weight slash inches.

ProsCons
15.6-inch display with full HD resolutionSparse port selection.
Full-size keyboard and touchpad.Too heavy
Long battery life in testing.

#3: Dell Chromebook 11

Overview: On the Chromebook 11, you’ll find a 180-degree reinforced hinge, rugged design, sealed keyboard and trackpad and a punchy typing experience accompanying a portable package. In addition to using the Chromebook for school work, bass-happy students will appreciate the loud stereo speakers for music and videos.

asus-chromebook-flip

#4: Asus Chromebook Flip

Overview: The number of laptops running Google’s Chrome OS has grown rapidly over the past year or two, and as manufacturers look for ways to differentiate, we’ve seen all manner of devices under the Chrome umbrella. But with super-slim new designs, souped-up components, touch screens, and multimode hinges, extra features have meant higher prices. The Asus Chromebook Flip, on the other hand, delivers a stunning, lightweight convertible design, excellent performance, and impressive battery life. It synthesizes the best innovations in the category into one system and does so at an affordable price

 

ProsCons
Fully metal constructionDisplay resolution is lower than that of most other chromebooks.
Excessive battery life
Touch screen.

acer-chromebook-r11

#5: Acer Chromebook R11

Overview: The Acer Chromebook R11’s minimalist design may not be the most enticing, but behind that shell is a surprisingly ready laptop that will last all day. Acer’s R11 packs in day-long battery life, punchy performance and a 360-degree hinge with touchscreen into a subdued design. It won’t break the bank, thereby making flaws, like an iffy trackpad and barely-HD touch display, a little easier to swallow.

 

ProsCons
ConvertibleTerrible trackpad
Attractively minimalistHD-only screen
Good battery life

google-chromebook-pixel

#6: Google Chromebook Pixel

Overview: Over the last few years, Google’s Chrome OS has morphed from an interesting thought experiment to a robust category of inexpensive hardware. Since then, Chromebooks have cropped up on college campuses, high school classrooms, and in homes, topping various lists of best-selling systems and bringing a very different PC experience to all sorts of people, from power users to technophobes, with pretty much every major manufacturer producing a Chromebook of its own.

 

ProsCons
Premium design and construction.Very expensive for a Chromebook.
High-resolution touch screen.Limited local storage.
Quick-charging battery lasted 12 hours in our tests.3:2 screen hurts multitasking
Free 1TB of Google Drive storage for three years.

Storage32GB Flash Storage
Screen Size12.85 Inch
Price$1,709.40

lenovo-n20p-chromebook

#7: Lenovo N20p Chromebook

Overview: This is one of the “sexier” Chromebooks around, showcasing Lenovo’s lust for style. However, the best feature is the N20p’s 300-degree hinge, bending the N20p’s display backward all the way into stand mode (or “tent” mode), which lends itself rather well to watching films or showing presentations. Still, there’s some struggle when using it as a tablet, as Chrome isn’t entirely made for touch as an almost exclusively browser-based interface. But, on the bright side, with two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port and an SD card reader, this Chromebook delivers an excellent overall value.

 

ProsCons
Touch capabilityRelatively expensive.
Gorgeous designDrab gray design.
300-degree hinge.Poor viewing angles

 

Specifications
ProcessorIntel Celeron N2830 Dual Core
RAM2 GB DDR3 RAM
Storage16 GB SSD
Screen Size11.6-Inch
Price$259.95

asus-chromebook-c300

#8: Asus Chromebook C300

Overview: After years of refinement, Asus finally came with a bigger, better and bolder Chrome OS devices like the Asus Chromebook C300. This 13-inch Chromebook comes with a slightly faster processor than the rest of its cloud-based flock – all while ditching the fan simultaneously. The TN screen unfortunately is awash, but this Chromebook simply goes on and on with its nigh excessive battery life.

 

ProsCons
Great performance under pressureNarrow viewing angles
Battery life goes on and onCheap-looking plastic on sides.

 

Specifications
ProcessorIntel Celeron N2830
RAM2 GB DDR3 RAM
Storage16 GB SSD
Screen Size13.3 Inch
