One of the first reasons to buy Chromebooks is that it is Affordable. It is affordable for students, kid who just started learning programming and etc.
The second reason that it is enough for your daily tasks and entertainment and can successfully replace need for expensive notebooks. New generation chromebooks like Asus, Samsung, Acer and Pixel are also convertible tablets.
Instead of Windows 10 or macOS, Chromebooks run Google’s Chrome OS. These machines are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and documents living in the cloud. Chromebooks have done quite well in the education market, but their appeal has broadened.
How Much Do Chromebooks Cost?
For the most part, there’s a pretty narrow price range for Chromebooks, and it’s on the more affordable end of the spectrum. You can pick up the affordable and light Acer Chromebook R11 — which has an 11.6-inch HD display, an Intel Celeron N3150 CPU and 2GB of RAM — for $169. Rare models ask you go go higher, such as the $549 Samsung Chromebook Pro, a stylus-equipped 12.3-inch notebook with a 2400 x 1600-pixel display, an Intel Core M3 processor and 4GB of RAM.
You’ll probably wind up paying more for a Windows 10 notebook, as the average selling price for a PC is $448, according to NPD. There are more affordable options, as we’ve detailed here, but the PC laptop market has a much higher cap than the Chromebook market.
You can even wind up spending as much as $1,199 on the 12.3-inch Pixelbook, which will soon have an even higher top price when the $1,649 Core i7 model becomes available. The $999 model is likely the best Pixelbook for most, with 128GB of storage, 8GB of RAM and a Core i5 processor, enough for both Chrome and Android.
