Chromebooks have come a long way in the past couple of years, both in terms of hardware and software. In 2015, you have a lot of different options in terms of price point, size, build quality and configurations. In terms of software, Chrome OS and the Chrome Web Store have filled in a lot of the holes that used to exist in the experience of working entirely in a browser.
In case you didn’t know, these aren’t laptops that you should be looking at if you do any kind of production or editing. However, if your computing is mostly email, word processing, and web browsing, you should really consider looking into a Chromebook for your next computer.
A word of caveat: some of the Chromebooks on this list, especially those that were released in 2014, can be found online for cheaper than the price listed.
