Best Chromebooks

They are simple, safe, and last a long time on a load. The best Chromebooks are great not only for students but for anyone who wants a laptop that is easy to use and less prone to malware than Windows laptops. Chromebooks are also under development. Many of them now have slimmer designs and touch screens, some have a more traditional clamshell look, and some have a 2-in-1 design. Other Chromebooks offer a surprising amount of stamina, so we’ve come up with our Chromebook list.

And with the support for Android apps, Chromebooks are becoming more and more versatile. If you’ve been expecting for a new premium Chromebook (Google decided not to update its Pixelbook this year), we’ve got good news from CES. The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is super thin from $999, has a 4K OLED display along with a 10th Gen Intel’s Core i5 processor, and stands out from the crowd in bright Red design.

Best Chromebooks in 2021

We review several Chromebook every year, and the books that make up our list offer the latest combination of value, performance, and computing convenience. Some are so good that they also make our best notebook list.

Asus Chromebook Flip C434

The best Chromebook overall

best chromebooks

  • CPU: Intel’s Core m3-8100Y
  • RAM: 4GB Of RAM
  • Storage: 64GB eMMC storage
  • Display: 14-inch, Full-HD 1080p touch-screen
  • Dimensions: 12.6 x 8 x 0.6 inches

The best Chromebook overall, the Flip C434, is an excellent successor to the Flip C302CA, our previous top pick. Not only do the super small edges allow Asus to fit its large 14-inch screen in a smaller chassis than you’d want, that display is both bright and colorful. What’s more, the aluminum design provides a more first-class feel than most Chromebooks. Oh, and I almost forgot: it lasts for around 10 hours on a single charge.
