Recommended Chromebooks, by Consumer Reports

Chromebooks are inexpensive and quick laptops “designed for users willing to work on and store most of their files online,” says Consumer Reports. “On the downside, there’s not a lot of storage space on a Chromebook. You need access to the internet to get the best work out of one of these machines. And these aren’t workhorse computers, though they are fine enough for creating and sharing documents.”

Here is the Consumer Reports’ selection of recommended Chromebooks. The maximum overall score is 100, and “Best Buy” models offer more value.

Dell Chromebook 13

Overall score: 80

Dell Chromebook 11

Overall score: 72

Asus Chromebook C201PA-DS01

“Best Buy”
