About this deal

A few recent models from makers such as Asus and Gigabyte also come with validations by Pantone for color accuracy. However, I would have preferred the Page Up, Down, Home, and End buttons placed below the number pad instead of at the top. True, the display could be brighter and there's no HDMI port (so you'll need a USB-C DisplayPort adapter to plug in an external monitor), but this 5.

The low points are that it doesn’t look as crisp or sharp as the screens on smaller Chromebooks, while the colour reproduction isn’t all that great. While not the 15 hours advertised, this Chromebook lasted a good 12 hours during our battery life benchmark.While I can’t yet speak to the performance gains of Jasper Lake, I can tell you this Chromebook 317 feels plenty snappy and that makes me excited for the future of low-cost, affordable Chromebooks. The Acer’s island-style keyboard is where I see the advantage in having a Chromebook with a space-hungry footprint. The XPS model line is Dell's flagship, showcasing the best the company has to offer in design, features, and innovation. After streaming a 15-minute 1080p video , the underside hit 83 degrees Fahrenheit, which fell nicely below our 95-degree comfort threshold.

Acer is touting the Acer 317 as the world’s first 17-inch Chromebook and while that is a defining characteristic of this machine for sure, there’s more to this device than just it’s giant footprint. You need a lot of computing power: If you're planning to do any video editing or creative work, this is not the laptop for you. That’s because a lot of these laptop alternatives end up in the hands of more casual users who don’t need a whole lot from their PC. The latest 13th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU drive an 18-inch, 240Hz display that gets even better with Nvidia G-Sync for ultra-smooth gaming. Asus Chromebook Flip CX5; a convertible model with an 11th gen Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and a good Full HD screen.

The webcam is a generic laptop component that captures relatively well-lit and colorful images with rather a lot of static or noise. You need excellent game streaming performance: If you already have or were thinking about getting a game streaming service like Nvidia GeForce NOW, this is the perfect machine to utilize it. While there’s some attempt to bevel away the bulk around the edges and give it a more wedge-shaped profile, this is still a large, flat slab of a laptop, complete with chunky bezels surrounding the screen that measure between 9mm and 24mm. All the same, it’s impressive that you get so much Chromebook for so little cash, and the 317 would be a great option for light office duties or home study, partly because the bigger screen and keyboard make it a more comfortable device for everyday use.

Whether you like to run several apps in the background or love to keep every tab you've ever opened open, the extra RAM and better processor will keep things running smoothly. If you need to use rendering software, want to dive into animation, or play the latest games, you're not going to be doing that on this.GE naturally stands for 'Gaming Edition', and this is just that: a solid Intel-powered Chromebook, with some slick new features added in to appeal to the gaming audience. It outlasted the average Chromebook (9:23), the Galaxy Chromebook 2 (8:18) and the Chromebook C423NA (7:58). It’s adequate for your streaming needs, whether you love going down the YouTube rabbit hole or binge-watching your favorite shows on HBO Max. A few 17-inch laptops are general-purpose PCs for people who want an occasionally portable system with a large screen. ASUS Chromebook CX1 offers a 180 ° lay-flat hinge that allows it to be fully opened and laid completely flat on a desk or table.
