One parent shared that the laptop "checks all the boxes" for both streaming and online school, making it a durable choice for kids. However, those who do enjoy online gaming will note that it may not be the best choice due to slower speeds.

If you've never used a Chromebook before, it's also worth noting that shoppers in other models have admitted that there can be a learning curve to get used to the Chrome operating system. Others who have switched from PCs or Macs say that can be "difficult to understand" the switch.
