Top Rated Chromebooks

Majority of the Chromebooks available in the market are small in size and quite inexpensive. But an older model from Samsung or the latest one from HP remain the best options. There are very few people who would be willing to go for the highly expensive Pixel, even though it is a brilliant flagship device for the ecosystem. Also with HP fixing the AC adapter problems in its Chromebook, we have another good choice.

Below is a list of some of the best Chromebooks that you could buy today:

Google Chromebook Pixel

1. Google Chromebook Pixel

The Chromebook Pixel by Google is essentially an idea. It is the tech giant’s vision of premium laptop for future world citizens. Its price starts from $1299 and it is a strongly built device that runs solely on the Chrome browser.

The exterior body of this laptop is made of aluminum and it weighs around 3.35 pounds. The stand-out feature of the Chromebook Pixel is its big high-resolution display screen. The screen is bright, covered with glass panel and has a resolution of 2660 X 1700 pixels. The screen quality is so good that the pixels are simply not visible. This means the pictures have brilliant details and the text is very fine.

HP Chromebook 14

2. HP Chromebook 14

The Chromebook 14 is quite affordable with a price of $300. It boasts of a 14-inch display and cannot absolutely be mistaken for the HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook, which was launched in the beginning of this year.

The Chromebook 14 is available in three great color options including peach coral, ocean turquoise and snow white. The exterior surface and the display edge are mostly covered by the color. The plastic feels soft and nice, even though it could easily show greasy fingerprints. The system weighs slightly more than 4 pounds with the AC adapter weighing an additional 0.7 pounds.

Samsung Chromebook Series 3

3. Samsung Chromebook Series 3

Even though the Samsung Series 3 appears to be a laptop, it is not. It has a mobile processor and very limited internal storage capacity. It basically runs on the Chrome browser only (not Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac OS X). You could think of it as more of a superior smartphone or tablet than a Chromebook.

So if you’re looking to multitask and not just surf the internet or produce cloud-based data, you should definitely not consider this one.

You could contact your computer rental service to get a hands-on experience of all these devices.
