Thinking about buying a new laptop but not sure of what the best one to fit your needs? A lot of people want to know if they should buy a Chromebook as they are really cheap. For some reason when we are looking to purchase a new notebook one of the first things we look at are the prices.
If you are looking to get a new laptop but just don’t have a big budget there are indeed a lot of laptops out there that will fit the bill when it comes to price. However what you should figure out is whether or not buying a Chromebook will fit your needs.
Reasons You Should Buy One
If you are like many people you don’t really need a powerful laptop. You basically just needs something that allows you to connect to the internet and do other little tasks. If you are someone who loves watching videos, surfing the internet, need general tasks done like writing papers, emails, and using powerpoint and excel then getting one of these may be for you.
Remember like a many of the other notebooks out there whether for gaming or design – these laptops are best suited for a group of select people. These laptops are really design to work and function off of apps.
Another reason to buy a Chromebook would definitely be pricing. You can get many of the notebooks for less than $300 and they come with about 16GB of storage onboard. Basically if you want something cheap and are okay with having a laptop that has to be used in the clouds this will do.
Don’t Get the Chromebook If
If you are a heavy gamer or someone who just doesn’t need there laptop with limited services and power. For those who just have to have Microsoft Office you will be fine but there tends to be a lot of formatting issues with other third-party documents so a little extra work and effort maybe required.
There is not really much of an offline mode for the Chromebooks so if working without the internet is needed you don’t have many options. Professionals that do 3D modeling, graphic design and such would not be happy with this as a main laptop choice.
So What Should You Do
Again if you are thinking of buying a Chromebook you really should figure out what you will be using it for. We find that people like college students and those using it as a second laptop like it best. You should not buy one if you really need a powerful laptop then I would suggest spending the money and getting something a little better.
So do you think you should buy a Chromebook for your next laptop? If so there are several to choose from and the price point is right. Just make sure it fits your needs and that you compare them all. Let us know how it works for you should you decide to buy one.
