Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols, at ZDNet makes a good argument with “Five reasons Chromebooks are better than Windows laptops“.
I can honestly attest to being a Windows user all my time being associated with computers, until last year when I purchased my first Chromebook. Yes, Windows can be a powerhouse; but, there are so many negatives with Windows vs. the positives of a Chromebook that I came to the conclusion for home-based users, a Chromebook is all you really need.
I encourage you to read Steven’s article to see the five reasons he listed. In his final closing summary to his article, he said this (for which I totally agree):
“If you want a laptop that does all the bread-and-butter internet and office work, get a Chromebook. If you have a friend or relative who needs a safer machine, give them a Chromebook. If you need a flexible system that can juggle Android, Linux, the web, and a bit of Windows, get a Chromebook. You’ll be glad you did.”
