Model: There is something I like about chromebooks. They are simple for web usage. I used to have a Google Pixel Book, which was kind of practical but at the same time not fully utilized. What do I mean by that?
Before purchasing a chromebook, you need to think about your day to day usage of your current device if it is not already a chromebook. What are you doing? Why do you need it? If you are just doing web operations and you are able to handle everything you need on the cloud, do you really need an expensive laptop? Coming back to my Pixel Book, I was not able to use it everyday, because I wanted to play games as well and therefore I had a gaming laptop, which made the Pixel Book almost useless. Then I sold it. After a few years, thinking about my day to day usage, I came to the conclusion that instead of using an expensive Macbook for day to day usage, I can easily switch to a Chromebook and I would not miss my Mac that much.
The Chromebook Flip C434 is something I can suggest to people looking for both versatility and mobility. Since it is 14 inch, it is quite adequate in the office, convert to tablet mode do some quick drawings or for on the go discussions with people. Maybe the unlucky part is that it does not have a video out and you need adapters for that, that kinda kills the practicality.
Other possible usage is for home. Since it is chrome based, it is fairly easy to cast to screens with a chromecast of course. What else can be done? If you are a developer or a gamer, there is literally not much that can be done on this laptop for you. But if you see yourself just surfing, typing all day long and watching videos, you can easily benefit from the Chromebook Flip C434TA. It is a well made, well thought device for just about 600 Euros at the moment. There are of course some small downsides to it, but I doubt they are deal breakers.
Overall, this is something I can literally buy as a Christmas gift to my mum, since I won’t have to deal with any viruses or any software stuff. Everything will be just online and easy to handle. Of course an initial training is necessary, because they have to learn, which cloud apps they need to use and how things work. At the end of the day, with 600 Euro, you can buy entry level regular laptops as well. As I mentioned at the beginning, whether you need a chromebook or not entirely depends on your needs.
