By offering this type of OS, Google targets the market of users looking for office use. By installing extensions, it is, of course, possible to go further, but not much more. As the name suggests, Chrome OS is an operating system based on the very famous Google Chrome browser, offering a suite of functions that revolve around it.

Like other laptops from different manufacturers and operating systems, Chromebooks also benefit from a very good autonomy in general. The reason for this is that the Google OS is extremely light and with very few processes running in the background. As a result, this explains this. At the same time, the best-optimized Chromebooks offer seamless fluidity even at the lowest prices.

1.      Acer Chromebook 15

If you are one of those users who prefer the size, the Acer Chromebook 15 might well meet your expectations. Accompanied by a large 15-inch screen, the Chromebook 15 comes in several models: some use an Intel Celeron processor, another uses an i3 processor, and another uses an i5 processor.

To return to the screen, this one is indeed of 15 inches and relies on a definition WXGA (768 x 1366 pixels) for some of the models, the others propose a Full-HD screen. It also supports compatibility with WiFi b / g / n and Bluetooth 4.0. For a laptop of this size, the weight of 2.2 kg is correct. At the battery level, you can arrive around 8 hours.

2.      Acer Chromebook 14

In the world of laptops and particularly Chromebooks, Acer is a recognized actor because he understood how the market works. After spending a few years to strengthen its models, including the excellent Acer C720P, does not seem ready to abandon this market.Featuring a 100% aluminum design, the Chromebook 14 (2016) upgrades its processor to a 2-core Intel Celeron (64-bit), which offers a frequency of 1.6 GHz in normal and 2.5 GHz In a situation of high performance.As you guessed, we are in front of a Chromebook with a 14-inch LCD screen in Full-HD resolution (1920 by 1080 pixels).

To ensure all this, 4 GB of RAM is there to support it. We also find the USB 3.1 on two ports, an HDMI input, WiFi (a / b / g / n / ac), Bluetooth 4.2 and a battery with a capacity of about 4000 mAh. The latter would be able to offer about 12h of endurance to the Chromebook 14. the price of this Acer Chromebook 14 is rather honest.

3.      HP Chromebook 14

In terms of laptops, HPis one of the undisputed references. Let us abandon the idea of Windows notebooks and the monsters of performance dedicated to games, here we have a 14 “laptop that represents well what one expects from a netbook: lightness and simplicity. Somewhat different depending on the models, for example, you can find an 11-inch, or find one in blue and not in silver color, but overall we find the same potential.

The internal memory is 16 or 32 GB on an SSD. At the level of the connection, we can use 3 USB ports, of which unfortunately only one work in version 3.0. This is a bit unfortunate in 2017 but it must be borne in mind that the device has already a few years. Beyond all this, we find a microSD slot (handy since there is only 16 GB). At the level of the processor, it is an Intel Celeron processor (different depending on the models) but overall the system is rather fast and responsive, thanks to the 4 GB of RAM allocated to it. The latest model, the Chromebook 14 G4, uses the Celeron N2840 which runs at a maximum frequency of 2.58 GHz. The battery, meanwhile, allows holding between 8 and 10 hours, according to your use.

4.      Dell Chromebook 11

In English, the slogan of the Dell Chromebook 11 is “Students today. Scientists tomorrow”. In a way, “The students of today are the scientists of tomorrow”. What is the relationship with the Chromebook, you may be wondering? The question is legitimate since the answer is not particularly clear. Asus wants to tell us that using his computer, students will become scientists. In short, the slogan is more explicit: “the computer without worry”.

Get a correct Chromebook: Intel Celeron N2840 processor, 2 GB memory and a nice screen of 11.6 inches. At the level of the connections, we find here also a location for the microSD card, which can be important for those who store many photos and videos. The other models offer an improvement of some characteristics: increase of the RAM (passing from 2 GB to 4 GB), the passage of a non-tactile LCD touch screen, etc. The definition still remains HD on all models. At the level of the connections, we find 1 USB port 3.0 and a USB 2.0 port. The battery will allow you to easily hold 8 to 9 hours, or even more in less intensive use.

5.      Asus Chromebook Flip

You’ve probably already heard about this Chromebook because it has an original feature: it can fold fully and therefore be used as a tablet. With a weight of 890 kg, one could almost get caught. Is the device as original as its design suggests? We cannot really talk about originality but the device does not disappoint: what it does it does well.

Unlike many devices on this list, we return to a typical Chromebook screen configuration: a 10.1 “diagonal with a WXGA resolution (800 x 1280 pixels). The device uses a quad-core Rockchip processor RK3288C) and a DDR3 RAM of 4 GB, but here again the internal memory is only 16 GB but can be improved with a microSD card No USB 3.0 port, only 2 ports in version 2.0. Battery, you are in a classic configuration: you hold more or less an hour according to your use. The less greedy will manage to hold about ten hours.

In other words, the strength of this device lies in its design and practicality, and on a daily basis, it will accompany you in all your tasks.
