Chrome OS is my favorite platform for “grab and go” work, especially writing. Over the past few years I’ve had the chance to play with several Chromebooks from the uber-cheap to the top-of-the-line, but last year I found a happy medium, the Acer Chromebook 15.
With a reasonable price point, capable specs, and a fantastic display, it was my perfect machine for using around the house and on the go for work, despite being a little large. Eventually, I gave it up to upgrade to the Dell Chromebook 13 for the sake of a bit more power, but the Chromebook 15 remained one of my favorite options, and one I recommended when the prices started dropping even further.
