Best Overall

Lenovo Chromebook C340 (11.6")

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

The best Chromebook just got better.

With double the USB ports and 8GB models on the horizon, Lenovo's aluminum-lidded laptop is more than a pretty face.

Lenovo Chromebook C340 (11.6") Features

  • 11.6-inch 10-point IPS touchscreen
  • Aluminum lid, plastic body
  • Intel Celeron N4000
  • 4-8GB RAM, 32-64GB storage
  • Up to 10-hour battery life
  • Pretty pink or silver color options

While last year's C330 skimped on ports, the

(also known as the C340-11) features a USB-A and USB-C port on each side of the machine, larger volume and power buttons, and swaps the full-size SD slot for a more compact and widely-used microSD. This new model is also slated for almost seven years of Chrome OS updates.

This Chromebook has proven very, very popular over the short months it's been available: Amazon can rarely keep 64GB models in stock — especially the alluring Sand Pink version — and most other retailers sell out just as quickly with the 32GB models. If you can find a C340-11, especially a 64GB model, don't wait too long: blink and they'll be gone.

The C340-11 has been out for almost six months now, and it's worked like a champ so far, lasting over nine hours on a single charge and holding up with over a dozen tabs open. The bezels around the screen are large, but they come in handy when you flip it over into tablet mode, and the keyboard is easy to type on for hours at a time.

ASUS Chromebook Flip C434

A portable powerhouse you can use anywhere

The 14-inch touchscreen excels at multitasking, and the backlit keyboard is easy to type on late into the night.

ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 Features

  • 14-inch 1080p touchscreen
  • Backlit keyboard
  • Large trackpad
  • Super-thin bezels
  • Up to 10-hour battery life
  • Thin aluminum build

is essentially a 14-inch Chromebook in a 13-inch shell, offering you a bigger screen while still being portable. Between its thin, solid construction, excellent battery life, and options for higher RAM and storage, the C434 is a Chromebook that can do it all. One of the few Chromebooks to offer a backlit keyboard, it's perfect for long nights and dim offices.

Even though 4GB has been more than enough for my 20-tab sessions, the option for 8GB of RAM is welcome. I wish 128GB models were more widely available, but 64GB is more than enough to get by. Throw in a sleek aluminum body, and you get a 14-inch laptop that's only slightly longer than my 11.6-inch C330 daily driver and shines brightly thanks to its "Spangle Silver" finish.

Wondrous performance for a great price

Lenovo already knows how to make a great small Chromebook, and with just a few small upgrades, it can be good for work and play.

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 Features

  • 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen
  • Barely bigger than the C340-11
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB storage
  • USI Stylus compatibility
  • Comfy, backlit keyboard
  • Loud upward-facing speakers

If your next laptop is here to work hard (and play harder), check our the

, the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5. This laptop shares much of its design and feel with our top pick, the Lenovo C340-11, and indeed it's barely an inch bigger despite having a screen that's 1.7 inches bigger.

The bezels around the Flex 5's 1080p screen are quite slim — just enough for you to grip when flipping between laptop, stand, and tablet modes. That means you'll get a compact laptop with a big-enough screen for quite comfortable split-screening. You'll also get a backlit keyboard that's every bit as comfortable as the keyboard on the C340-11, and sitting on either side of the keyboard are speakers that will get nice and loud (though a bit tinny when you start blaring).

Lenovo mentions a version of the Flex 5 with a Celeron processor in its spec sheet, but the only model I've seen for sale uses the 10th Gen i3, which is great because that's the model I highly recommend getting. While Celeron processors are great for smaller Chromebooks that are just for lightweight computing, for business I recommend splurging on the i3. Not that you can really call it splurging when the Flex 5 is priced so competitively — it's less expensive than a lot of 11-inch Chromebooks!

Best for New Features

Google Pixelbook Go

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

Google's stylish new high-end Chromebook

While not a 2-in-1, the Pixelbook Go is a powerful, premium clamshell Chromebook with a magnificent magnesium shell.

Google Pixelbook Go Features

  • Bright 13.3-inch touchscreen
  • Premium magnesium body
  • Up to 12 hour battery life
  • 8-16GB RAM, 64-256GB storage
  • Up to Intel i7 processor
  • First for new features

While the 3:2 form factor of the original Pixelbook certainly had its fans, I'm pleased as punch that the Go uses a far more sensible 16:9 aspect ratio, which is better for split-screening and better for in-flight movies.

can't fold back into tablet mode like the Pixelbook — and most other Chromebooks on the market — but that also means it didn't need huge grippable bezels around the screen, allowing it to squeeze down into a slimmer footprint.

Another marked improvement for the Go is a more functional design that's still luxurious. While the Pixelbook was all sharp corners and flat rectangles, the Go has rounded edges and a wavy ridged bottom that increases grip and stability. The Pixelbook Go also has two colors — pink and black — quiet Hush Keys, and a lightweight magnesium body similar to that used by the Microsoft Surface line.

If you live for having the latest features, the Pixelbook Go is for you because, as Google's branded Chromebook, this shiny baby gets all the new toys before anyone else does, especially once you hope onto the Beta or Dev channels. You'll also want to invest in some USB-C hubs, as the Pixelbook Go only has three ports: a USB-C port on either side of the laptop and a headphone jack.

Best for Students

ASUS Chromebook Flip C214

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

Rugged, reliable, and ready to pull an all-nighter.

This version of the C214 improves on the 2017 model in about every way: slimmer, more powerful, and better optimized.

ASUS Chromebook Flip C214 Features

  • Durable 11.6-inch touchscreen
  • Mil-STD-810G rugged 2-in-1
  • Up to 12 hour battery life
  • 4 GB RAM, 32 GB storage
  • Spill-resistant keyboard
  • Built-in stylus model available

The 11.6-inch

folds completely flat into tablet mode with a high-strength zinc alloy hinge that shouldn't wear out no matter how hard your kid — or you — are on it. With a channeled, spill-resistant keyboard, if in-flight turbulence sends your Coke or coffee over your Chromebook, you're not out extra cash for a new one.

This updated model will also move the secondary camera from the top of the keyboard to the lower right corner, putting it top right when the Chromebook is in tablet mode but also making it more prone to grease buildup since it will sit near the user's palm. If I could make a suggestion: grab the version with the stylus. It's great for sketching away in art apps — or scrolling through fanfiction in bed, which is what I use it for most often.

Best Tablet

Lenovo Chromebook Duet

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

Part laptop, part tablet, all Chrome OS awesome.

The Duet finally gives us the kind of Google tablet we've wanted for a decade.

Lenovo Chromebook Duet Features

  • 10.1-inch 1080p touchscreen
  • Comes with kickstand and keyboard
  • Battery lasts over 12 hours
  • 4GB RAM, 64-128GB storage
  • Proper Chrome OS tablet
  • Eight years of Chrome OS updates

Lenovo first debuted the Duet at CES and it gave us hope that we might see a Chromebook tablet finally done right. The Duet has a battery that goes on and on and on, especially if you're just doing some reading and casual games like me, and the screen is nice and bright for videos and comics. The detachable keyboard can feel cramped if you're using it for hours and hours on end, but as a companion device or a couch computer, the Duet is perfect.

Since the day pre-orders opened, the Duet has been very, very hard to find in stock, so if this seems like the Chromebook for you, you'll want to check back early and often to see if the stock has just been refreshed. It's worth the wait for a Chromebook tablet that's affordable, reliable, and fully-accessorized out of the box, having learned from the Google Pixel Slate's mistakes.

Best of Project Athena

Acer Chromebook Spin 713

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

Phenomenal Chromebook power, reasonable price point.

If you're someone who loves a 3:2 screen and a powerful processor to power it, this Project Athena Chromebook is for you.

Acer Chromebook Spin 713 Features

  • Vibrant 13.5-inch 2K touchscreen
  • Beefy 10th Gen i3-i7 processor
  • Responsive backlit keyboard
  • 8-16GB RAM, 128-256GB storage
  • Very powerful 2-in-1
  • USB-A and HDMI ports

Like the Acer Spin 13 before it, Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is one of the most powerful Chromebooks out there that doesn't just go completely overboard in terms of price. Project Athena is a program stated by Intel working with manufacturers to produce laptops that will be fast, powerful, and reliable. So, as a Project Athena Chromebook, there's an expectation of speed and power that the Spin 713 absolutely delivers on.

Even with dozens of tabs open and a couple Android apps, this Chromebook keeps chugging along, though the fan may kick on from time to time — yes, an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 requires a fan to keep it cool once you really get it going. The bottom of the laptop doesn't heat up too much, so you can still use it in your lap pretty easily, but you will hear the fan every now and then.

Acer differed the Chromebook Spin 713 from the first two Project Athena Chromebooks in two ways. Firstly, you actually have more than the USB-C ports; there's a USB-A port and an HDMI port on the 713, which means that you aren't scrambling for a USB-C hub immediately. Secondly, while there are some more pricey configurations if you want an i7, the standard i5/8GB/128GB model is a completely reasonable price.

Best Big-Screen Chromebook

Lenovo Chromebook C340 (15.6")

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

Great functionality in a price-performing package.

This super-sized successor to our favorite C330 brings a solid offering to the large-screen segment of the Chromebook market.

Lenovo Chromebook C340 (15.6") Features

  • 15.6-inch 1080p touchscreen
  • Intel Gold or i3 processor
  • Full keyboard with numpad
  • 4GB RAM, 32-64GB storage
  • Good port configuration
  • Huge 2-in-1 for media

If you remember from the top of our list, the Lenovo C330 is a dependable, affordable workhorse that I love, and Lenovo brought the same affordable workhorse experience to a larger form factor with the 15.6-inch Lenovo C340, also known as the C340-15.

This may not have a 4K screen like the Lenovo C630, but it's significantly less expensive and has a more durable, pleasant-in-the-hand design. The C340-15 may only have up to 64GB of storage — please, please, do yourself a favor and get the i3/64GB model — but it also has a microSD card slot so you can load up on movies for that cross-country flight. Its 56kWh battery can last 10 hours, long enough to watch the three Lord of the Rings films (theatrical, not Extended Edition) before needing to find a USB-C charger.

Another beautiful addition to the C340-15 is the addition of a number pad to the keyboard, which is a wonderful addition for those of us who prefer to lock a Chromebook via PIN or need to input a lot of numbers and grade scores. It's a small improvement, but it has a huge impact.

Best 4K Chromebook

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

A stunning screen, pressure-sensitive pen, and Project Athena

Whether you want the latest specs for your work or the best screen around for watching movies, this gives you both.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Features

  • 13.3-inch 4K touchscreen
  • Backlit keyboard with fingerprint sensor
  • Project Athena certified
  • Super-thin bezels
  • 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
  • Distinct, vibrant style

Chromebooks with 4K screens are still a relatively small and elite group, and if you want a 4K Chromebook that's actually light enough to carry around all day without having to blow an entire month's rent, Samsung's latest and greatest Chromebook is the one for you. The Galaxy Chromebook features a 4K screen, a 10th gen i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. This is the brass ring, folks.

As a Project Athena Chromebook, it is powerful and secure, offering a fingerprint sensor in the top right corner of the keyboard and Chrome OS's sandboxed system for apps. The Galaxy also comes with a built-in, pressure-sensitive pen — similar to the ones we find on the Note series — and it's a 2-in-1 so that you can turn it into a drawing tablet or prop it up in bed for a movie marathon.

The only downside to the Galaxy Chromebook — apart from that price tag — is that its thin profile means that the bottom of the Chromebook can get a little warm during intensive sessions. Battery also is also a bit lower than we'd expect, but Google and Samsung are working on some optimizations to help bring it back up to the 8 hours we expect from a Chromebook.

Best Budget Workhorse

Acer Chromebook 715

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

A good workhorse that won't stand out

Build quality is solid on the powerful but understated Acer Chromebook 715, which makes it great for office work but a bit big for travel.

Acer Chromebook 715 Features

  • 15.6-inch 1080p IPS touchscreen
  • Up to 12 hours of battery life
  • Full keyboard with number pad
  • 4GB RAM, 32-128GB storage
  • Solid build quality
  • 8th Gen Intel i3

While the Acer Chromebook 715 is "just okay" in a few areas — the screen is adequate but not stellar, speakers are tinny at times — it adds up to a reliable option if you want a big screen but not a big price. There aren't many 15-inch Chromebooks in this price range these days — even fewer with touchscreens — so that helps the overall unimposing 715 stand out in the crowded Chromebook lineup that Acer keeps cranking out.

As they say, "beauty lies within", and the power underneath the unassuming aluminum chassis is what should draw you to the Acer 715. The Intel i3 is a powerful processor perfect for professionals and power users. I wish it was paired with 8GB of RAM, but 4GB has been enough in my limited time with my review model so far. Like the Lenovo C340-15, the 715 comes with a Numpad on its keyboard, another benefit for number-crunchers and teachers with dozens of grades to enter.

Recap — There's a Chromebook out there for everyone

Chromebooks might get pegged as only being for students and salarymen. Still, there truly is a Chromebook for everybody these days, whether you're just browsing email and social media or getting down and dirty with Linux apps and coding IDEs. With
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!
on the horizon, gaming on a Chromebook will be here soon, too. While there are a lot of great Chromebook manufacturers out there, Lenovo and ASUS's models seem to go harder and last longer than the competition, though Samsung, Dell, and HP can make some pretty premium Chromebooks when they put their minds to it.

How to pick the best Chromebook

Choosing your Chromebook is slightly different than picking a Windows or Mac laptop due to the standardized, cloud-centric nature of Chrome OS. Because Google controls the software look and update schedule for every Chromebook model, a Chromebook built by Lenovo should act the same as a Chromebook from Dell or Samsung. So what does that mean?

It means you can focus a little less on those core specs and focus more on what you want to do with the machine you choose. This process may seem slightly out of order, but trust me on this one:

1. Get one with a touchscreen — a 2-in-1 if you can

Touchscreens may be a luxury for other laptop systems, but on Chromebooks, I consider it a requirement. Chrome OS's touch optimization is getting better every month, and since most of the Android apps Chromebooks can install via Google Play are optimized for touch, treat yourself to a touchscreen model!

Touchscreen models usually aren't that much more expensive for Chromebooks in 2019 — many Chromebook models don't even bother with non-touchscreen versions these days — but if you see a Chromebook that says it's non-touch, walk away and don't look back. It's a beautiful thing to be able to tap on the screen when scrolling through Amazon, and after playing Solitaire on a touchscreen, you'll never go back to using a mouse.

That touchscreen comes in even handier on 2-in-1s, the best form factor I've seen for Chromebooks yet. Being able to prop up your Chromebook in Tent mode for a movie, or fold it flat into Tablet mode for some in-bed browsing while down with the flu is amazing, but having a 360-degree hinge is excellent for everyday productivity, too. You can bend your Chromebook back to more angles when working in awkwardly-lit offices with weird light glare or propped in your lap at a ballgame because you didn't forget those quarterly expense reports that were due tomorrow and refuse to skip the game for that.

2. Decide on the other features you want

Chrome OS is almost entirely the same on every device from a software perspective, which means that standout hardware features become paramount, and figuring out which of those features you want or need in a machine can help narrow the field and steer you to your perfect Chromebook.

As mentioned before, you want a touchscreen Chromebook — a 2-in-1 if you can swing it — but if you tend to do a lot of movie-watching, you may want a high-quality screen, or loud, front-facing speakers.

If you're looking to be more productive with a multitude of open tabs and multi-window screens, you might want a 3:2 display that's more suited to split-screening and a more powerful processor/memory configuration. Productivity-minded users should also pay special mind to the port configurations on their prospective Chromebooks, as USB-C starts to replace most other ports on more premium Chromebooks like the Pixelbook while more grounded models keep USB-A ports around alongside new USB-C charging ports.

Families with younger kids — or travelers that are prone to slips, spills, and accidents — might want to look to the growing number of Chromebooks with military-grade MIL-STD 810G durability or spill-resistant keyboards.

3. Pick your size

Chromebooks come in a variety of sizes, but they tend to gravitate to four sizes in general:

  • 11.6-inch models are portable and affordable. At their smaller size, their screens can look good, even if they're less than 1080p native resolution — though screen resolution is handled a bit differently on Chrome OS; we'll get to that a little later. Depending on the bezels on the screen, 11.6-inch Chromebooks can either have full-sized keys or slightly shrunken keys, though most manufacturers use full-size keys on 11.6-inch models.
  • 12.3-12.5-inch models are becoming more and more popular, especially with detachables and 2-in-1s like the HP Chromebook X2, Microsoft's Surface Pro line, and the Google Pixel Slate. These models often have a 3:2 aspect ratio, which makes them more useful for split-screening windows, multitasking, and sketch/photography apps.
  • 14-inch models sit at the high margin for the portable category. Still, with thin bezels and proper engineering, these can be almost as portable and manageable as 13-inch laptops with 7-9 hour battery lives. If you need to display your text at a larger font — and yes, Chrome OS has a separate font scale independent of the display zoom — a 14-inch model is your best bet for a productive Chromebook that won't strain your eyes, especially as most 14-inch models start at 1080p.
  • 15.6-inch models are made for desks and dining room tables. I lovingly refer to these as LINOs — Laptop in name only — because while you can shove them into larger laptop backpacks for a vacation, these Chromebooks aren't made for laps and tray tables, they are made for a standard office environment where they usually live in peace. These larger laptops are great for productivity because you can see more at one time, but they tend to have shorter battery lives and higher weights, which dissuade them from being dragged around daily.

In general, the bigger the size of your Chromebook, the more you can potentially fit on the screen, but it will also be less portable and shorter in battery life. The smaller it is, the less heavy and (usually) less expensive it will be. Still, smaller models can also suffer from lower resolution screens, though Chrome OS's display zoom and font adjustments can somewhat offset it.

4. Memory and storage — what do you really need?

RAM — Random Access Memory — is a critical spec for computers of all sizes and shapes, from phones and tablets to desktops and laptops. It's used by your computer's processor(s) to hold your current tabs, apps, and execute the commands, clicks, and operations that make your Chromebook work.

So how much RAM do I need? 4 GB of RAM in a Chromebook is fine today. 8 GB is better, and high-end Chromebooks can come with 16 GB or more, but 4 GB of RAM is more than enough to run Chrome OS with a couple of apps and a dozen Chrome tabs.

If you're a long-time Windows user — or a long-time computer user of any kind — looking at the storage on most Chromebooks will seem confusing at first because it's not going to sound like enough. Chrome OS is based around cloud storage — Google Drive is integrated directly into the Files app — but local storage is still essential for things like Android apps from Google Play, offline documents and downloaded music/movies for those horrible Wi-Fi-less flights.

You can also expand the storage on many Chromebooks with
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!
, but there's no beating proper local storage to start with. 32 GB of storage is workable, but I'd recommend going with a model with at least 64 GB of storage. Finding 128 GB or more is usually reserved for premium Chromebooks with heftier price tags, but 64 GB Chromebooks are pretty widely available and offer more than enough storage for some Drive offline syncing and some emergency entertainment.

5. Always check the expiration date!

Chrome OS is developed, managed and updated by Google for all Chromebooks, but Google doesn't want to be stuck supporting every random budget chipset and driver set forever, so each Chromebook has a shelf life and an expiration date, just like the milk in your fridge! This is the Auto Update Expiration date, and it can be found for every single model on this handy dandy
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!
, which I have bookmarked because I am a freak and you should check often while you're shopping for Chromebooks.

Now, a Chromebook doesn't turn into a pumpkin on its AUE date — assuming your Chromebook lasts three to six years until that date — but it does stop receiving those system updates every Chromebook gets every four to six weeks that contain bug fixes, security patches, and new features. If your Chromebook is still running decently at that time, you're a champ, and with a teeny bit of know-how, you can reformat it to run one of a dozen Linux distros instead.

That said, four to six years is a long time for any laptop and chances are yours will be getting long in the tooth by then, but right now, when shopping, always check the AUE to see how long your Chromebook will get updates. Some Chromebooks have shorter lifetimes than others if they're built on the same platform as a previous Chromebook — AUE is based on the hardware platform, not individual model, which is also why many Chromebooks have the same AUE dates — so it's something you'll always want to check before buying, even if the model itself is brand-new.

What is Chrome OS?

Chromebooks run Chrome OS, the Google-managed version of Chromium OS, a free Linux distribution that is open-source, lightweight, and web-centric. Chrome OS does not allow you to install regular applications and programs the way you would on Windows PCs; instead, Chromebooks rely on web-based applications, Android applications installed and managed via Google Play, and Linux apps, which are slowly rolling out to more and more Chromebook models.

Chrome OS's biggest strength lies in its lightweight stability and reliability. On computers with specs that barely support other operating systems, Chrome OS runs adequately and often excellently, meaning that for lower-end laptops, Chromebooks rule! That said, Chrome can take advantage of the most potent components available — from latest-gen multi-core processors to 4K displays — to create a super-smooth, super-powered premium experience.

Chrome OS is designed in large part for education and enterprise, which means the system is hard-to-break, easy-to-manage — all updates are handled in the background by the system itself — and wonderfully secure, with
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!
, including a huge standing bounty for anyone who finds ways to compromise Chrome OS in its extra-locked-down Guest mode.

In short, Chrome OS is a lightweight, high-security system that's great for users with any level of technical know-how. Chromebooks are easy enough for school children to use and powerful enough for bigshot businesspeople, which means that they're great for everyone that doesn't need system-specific high-intensity programs like video editors, CAD rendering, and PC gaming — and even that's coming to Chromebooks soon with
