    I genuinely enjoy helping people get the most bang for their buck with tech.

    DBD!! That worked great, there was something else I tried but it never worked reliably, crazy how many years it took to get such a basic function.
    Pixel(not C) is CB flagship. Beneath that, IMO, are the Dells, and then Toshiba, but the new Acer looks good. I think Asus has the only touchscreen one, which will come in handy now that CBs will be able to use Android apps. Anyway, here's the list of CB's that will work with Android, sadly my old Samsung didn't make the cut.

    I think anything more that $350-$400 and you're wasting money. They were designed to be functional while cheap. I have the Toshiba Chromebook 2 (I think that's what @goldtopper got as well) and love it. You can find that refurbished under 200. If I was buying now I hear the new Dell is outstanding. The new Acer too.

    Yep, listen to DrivenByDemons. My Toshiba is amazing. 15 second bootups, no virus protection needed...lightening fast internet.

    Yeah, check the Dell outlet store, that's where I picked up my refurbed CB13 for 225, couldn't tell it wasn't new.
