I always like to peruse newegg reviews. I've looked at chromebooks. For what it does, I'd rather get a decent tablet with a keyboard - honestly I think that'll be more useful than a chromebook.

Chromebook is like a lightweight companion - you shouldn't expect it to do /much/ imo. I looked at chromebooks, netbooks, and tablets. In my opinion the tablet market has grown enough (I thought they were stupid at first) that most tablets function better than small-scale portable computers (chrome/netbooks). That's just my opinion, as someone who's browsed the lightweight market for something easy to transport purely for class notes, school, and general portability.

If you're looking at this for gaming... I think you're looking in the wrong place.


also assuming you wanted a cheap gaming laptop because you gave no real idea of what you actually want this for. `-`

I was thinking about buying one for classes since they seem to have a really long battery life.


What i'm looking for is easy portability and a long lasting battery.

Then yeah. If you had said that in the first place @_@

Personally I think I prefer an Asus transformer with the chargeable keyboard dock, but that comes down to preference. If you read the reviews I linked, the general consensus is that they do what they're made to do well - though they can't run office. An android tablet can run a free office app that's saves/opens .docs and you can get a USB port wit a transformer at least... Honestly I'd rather shell out the extra money for a tablet by that's my opinion. Shop around a little bit.
