School season is coming up, and it is time to get your knowledge-hungry child a tool that helps to access an unlimited database of information of any kind and form – a laptop. A laptop can help with almost any task and difficulty your kid will have to face at school, and some problems will even be impossible to solve without it.
But what is the best laptop for a school boy or girl? Chromebook laptops would definitely be a right choice. They run on a Linux-based OS, so they are less suitable for games; it is really easy to access the internet from them, but advanced Chrome tools will help you to install a parental control. Overall, every student has to have a Chromebook for school. Here are the best Chromebooks of 2017 for you to choose from.
1. Samsung Chromebook Plus
Samsung was one of the first companies to try the Chrome OS on their laptops back in 2011. Apparently, they’ve thought that the experiment has succeeded, because since then they’re continuing to create computers specifically with this software on. The latest Samsung Chromebook is not as powerful as other company’s laptops, but it is definitely made to last for years and it solves most of the problems a school kid would need from it to solve.
2. HP Chromebook 14
Apparently, HP has strived to make the best-looking laptop for the modern generation, and they’ve definitely achieved this task. While still being the HP Chromebook, the designing choice is amazing, which means that the team at HP has achieved the perfect balance between looks and performance. While there are some complaints about the battery life, it is a great choice for a kid or a teenager.
3. Acer Chromebook 15
Another contestant from another forefather of the Chromebook, this laptop is much more powerful than any other Chrome OS-running computer we’ve seen. With 15-inch FullHD display, Acer Chromebook is powered by Intel Core i5 CPU, 2-4 Gb of RAM, SSD and a great battery life, this laptop could definitely overpower some PCs. However, this power comes at a price – Acer Chromebook reviews mention that it is pretty heavy, so you shouldn’t buy it if your child is too young to carry it.
4. Dell Chromebook 11
Dell is known to make great laptops – from their more recent transformers to amazing Alienware gaming laptops. This time they’ve made something that strikes a perfect balance between performance, size, and design. Dell Chromebook also has reinforced hinges that will help it to last longer and have the ability to turn up to 180 degrees. It will also be a perfect present if your kid likes loud music – the speakers are just great!
5. Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Chromebook
This Chinese manufacturer is great in making affordable gadgets, and this laptop is probably the best Chromebook for its price. Among all the features of a proper Chromebook, this Thinkpad has a great keyboard, it is amazingly pleasant to use it for typing. You can also get it with a touchscreen, which will make your kid’s work even easier. If you want to give your child a helpful and enjoyable present, buy this or any other Chromebook on Jiji.
