Good Chromebooks at Various Budgets by LemonComputers version 1.0

Today, I'll be recommending several good Chromebooks at different budgets, ranging from low budget Chromebooks to premium flagship Chromebooks. This time around, our main retailer will be the official Google Store.

$200 Chromebook: Acer Chromebook 15

Intel Celeron 3205U, 2 or 4 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB SSD; PCPartPicker: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/PfH48d/acer-laptop-nxmunaa005; Google Store: https://store.google.com/product/acer_chromebook_15

$300 Chromebook: Acer Chromebook 14

Intel Celeron N3160, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB SSD; PCPartPicker: None; Google Store: https://store.google.com/product/acer_chromebook_14

$400 Chromebook: Dell Chromebook 13

Intel Celeron 3205U, 4 GB of RAM, 16 GB SSD; PCPartPicker: None; Google Store: https://store.google.com/product/dell_chromebook_13 (Unfortunately, it appears that the Dell Chromebook 13 is no longer available at the Google Store as of September 4, 2016.)

$500 Chromebook: Dell Chromebook 13

Pretty funny, I'm reading and writing this on a Chormebook 15. I've had it for over a year now, and holy crap, it is amazing! The speakers are the best out of any laptop I've every heard by far, lasts the whole school day with more than half left in the battery. Keyboard is great, just everything about it is amazing.

Something to note though, probably due to the fact that it has been through some pretty cringy situations (actually, probably every day), it has slowed down a bit, watching more than one youtube video at once, or browsing and watching is pretty hard now. It still works though, I don't know how many laptops could fall off a counter on to a tile floor multiple times and come out smiling.

What Chromebooks are known for. (Says a Google fan here.)

I assume that's either because it has a Celeron or because it only has either 2 or 4 GB of RAM.

Many Google products have high quality aluminum that is MUCH more durable than the potato HP laptop I'm currently typing on.

Yeah, that looks like a nice budget Chromebook option. Didn't see it though when first creating this topic because it isn't sold at the Google Store.
