Another of what passes for analysis on why a Chromebook should be your next laptop.
Over the years I’ve gone through a number of high-end laptops. Right now I’m typing this on a MacBook Pro with sixteen gigabytes of RAM, one terabyte of storage, an Intel Core i7 processor, and a high-pixel-density display. It’s a great system, but I’m also very aware of the fact that it’s a lot of power for what I do mostly, which is research and write.
An iPad can do the same thing. Or, maybe an Amazon Fire tablet. Different strokes for different folks.
If you’re the sort of person who uses their laptop to run something like Photoshop or Lightroom or something similar on a regular basis, then you can probably stop reading right now.
Unfortunately, I did not.
However, if you’re the sort of person who uses their laptop for browsing the web, working with word processor documents or spreadsheets, consuming content and the like, then choosing to make the switch to a Chromebook is not only gong to save you money, but it’s also going to make your life easier.
But what if I want to do both? What if I need Office? Should I buy a Chromebook, too? And, isn’t the term ‘laptop’ kinda sorta mostly 1999-ish?
