Best Chromebooks of 2014
List of Chromebook Models
A Chromebook can be an excellent low-cost Windows laptop alternative. What’s the best Chromebook to buy in 2014? Here’s our top picks of the best Chromebooks on the market.
Whether it’s because of their very affordable prices or an aversion to Windows 8.1′s complexity, more and more shoppers are buying Chromebooks. There are some valid reasons to choose a Chromebook over a Windows machine, including a very intuitive interface (it’s largely browser based), a lack of upgrade headaches and less worrying about malware. And while Chromebooks have limited offline capability, there’s a growing number of apps that work without a Wi-Fi connection.
With practically every PC maker now selling a Chromebook, choosing the right model for you largely comes down to design, screen size and battery life. The little things also count for a lot, like keyboard comfort and speaker quality. We’ve tested a wide range of Chromebooks to arrive at this list of top picks.
