Asus C300ma-edu Chromebook 13-Inch 32GB SSD 4GB RAM

I have a 15 inch laptop that I used to bring whenever I go to college, however, I recently purchased this ASUS Asus C300ma-edu Chromebook to be an alternative. I decided on a Chromebook because I am using Google’s productivity apps like Google docs, drives, sheets, etc, it’s just the perfect OS to run these apps daily.

Bought it here since it’s less.

Every day, since I purchased it a few weeks ago, I always have this Chromebook in my class, and haven’t found big complains about it. I will try going through for the bad and the good.

Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S 11.6-Inch Laptop (Diamond Black) No Chromebook

I purchased this Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S laptop last week and this 11.6-inch machine has been running very well ever since. The small one drawback for me is the storage size, which is a 32GB and after installed other programs, like another browser, and my preferred anti-virus, it will be about 11GB left, but it’s still OK because I can still use the SD card slot to add extra storage.

This 11-inch laptop will not beat better specs-ed laptops, purchased the most reasonable price on Amazon, but it is definitely a better laptop than any laptops that have an atom processor.

The N2840 processor is an updated version of Atom, this is why it’s more fast and powerful.

Is Toshiba Satellite C55-B5298 16-inch Laptop Just Usable?

The very con of this Toshiba Satellite C55-B5298 to me is the keyboard, which is a little bit more to the left because of its configuration, it has numpad, but you will need time to get used to. It’s still manageable, but it’s a little bit difficult to type at first.

Aside from that, been messing around with this laptop for a week, and there is not too much to complain about it. Not the fastest, or the prettiest laptop, but it’s decently fast for my daily computing stuff like internet, MS Office, and streaming YouTube videos.

Toshiba CB35-B3340 13.3-Inch Chromebook 2 Isn’t The Fastest

This Toshiba CB35-B3340 is an upgrade of the previous Toshiba Chromebook early 2014 model.

I know some people complains about not being able to run Windows programs on this Chromebook, therefore I strongly recommend you to understand what you are going to get before even consider buying a Chromebook.

If this will be the first time using a Chromebook, you can download Chrome browser on your computer, be it Windows or Mac, to see what you can do with a Chromebook – it’s like doing computing jobs with only your Chrome browser and its store.

You are certainly going to need some times to get used to your first Chromebook. The difference between a Chromebook and a tablet or laptop is the storage. Tablets stores your files mostly in the device, while Chromebook can store them in the cloud.

With a purchase, you will get 100 GB free for 2 years period of time, which is big enough if you want to save your files in the cloud. Also, ability to access internet is a must if you want to use Chromebooks comfortably, though working offline will still work, like working with Google’s docs, etc.
