From elementary school classrooms to offices, Google’s laptop OS is bringing the heat to Windows and Apple​


All the best Chromebooks are affordable due to their lightweight Chrome OS, which relies heavily on online and cloud-based functions, meaning you don't need especially high-end hardware in order for them to run. Unlike Windows or Mac laptops, Chromebooks can use less powerful and cost-effective components, making them a budget-friendly choice for users seeking basic computing needs. These attributes have made them perfect for educational and business purposes over the years since release. So much that Apple is reportedly looking to make a similar product. This is one of the many reasons why 2024 looks set to be Chromebooks' best year yet and here’s why.

The Year of Chromebook Plus​

Chromebooks are known for being low-powered machines that utilize the web for various apps and tools. Of course, this has made the operating system underpowered for more intensive creative and gaming tasks. This is where Chromebook Plus hopes to change modern expectations of where Google’s laptop operating system can go. Google revealed its new Chromebook Plus series this year featuring upgraded specifications including Intel Core or AMD Ryzen CPUs, 1080p display, 8GB RAM, and 128GB storage.

The lineup also includes various Google software features like Google Photos Magic Eraser, offline file sync, AI-powered video conferencing enhancements, and more. Chromebook users will receive free perks like a three-month Photoshop on the Web subscription, and existing Chromebook owners meeting the hardware requirements will get a free update to the Chromebook Plus software.

Android Central Verdict​

Acer didn't rock the boat too much when it comes to the Chromebook Spin 714 (2023). It has plenty of power thanks to Intel's 13th Gen processor, and you can already enjoy all of the new Chromebook Plus features. For the money, this is the best Chromebook that you can buy. But, Acer also decided to get rid of the stowable USI stylus, and there's still no fingerprint scanner. We're hoping that one of these days, Acer creates a Chromebook that is devoid of any compromises.

Pros​

  • Convertible design with excellent build quality
  • Arguably offers the best "Chromebook Plus" experience
  • Plenty of horsepower
  • All-day battery life, and then some
  • 1440p webcam
