My laptop is broken. Would a chromebook replace it, or do I need another laptop?
My laptop doesn't work very well. (for example it switches itself off randomly). I have decided I should replace and someone suggested a chromebook should do me. I mostly use my laptop for watching tv and checking facebook/emails so I don't need anything fancy, but I am a bit worried about the limitations of a chromebook.
The Samsung Chromebook won't do too well when it comes to multitasking. From what I could tell most of them work on a dual core CPU which means not a lot of multitasking. Stick to a quad core CPU. I like the price tag on the units but I don't like what is provided, except for the solid state drives, I love that. Not enough for me to want one though. To effectively judge if this will replace your old computer though we kind of need to know what your old computer was.
I would recommend you move (or stay based on what you currently have) over to the HP laptops. You will be safe there.
My current laptop is a Dell Inspiron. What is a "quad core CPU"? I'm not sure I need to do loads of multitasking, but think I will go for a laptop because sounds like chromebook won't be useful without wifi. Thanks for your comment.
Ok, anything is better than a Dell. When it comes to cores just remember that more is better. The more cores means you can multitask better. A CPU is the Central Processing Unit (the brain). I would recommend an HP.
It would just depend on what you do with your computer. If you just use it for web browsing, typing up documents, watching youtube/netflix and such, than a Chromebook will be awesome. Only downside is you are paying quite a bit for not a very beefy computer. Instead you are paying for google to take care of you as much as they can. (BTW, the last guy was wrong. There is multiple models of the Chromebook, Samsung doesn't own the rights.) If money is an issue, you are better off getting a different laptop.
Also if you plan on gaming, video editing, drawing, 3d modeling, etc... you definitely want to get a different laptop. Brand doesn't usually matter, but the companies who usually design better computers for media/gaming would be HP, Dell, Alienware, and Asus. There are more, but the list is excessive. For causal gaming, video editing, moderate quality 3D modeling/animating and/or average level photo editing, anything $500+ will suit you. For heavy gaming, high-quality 3D modeling/rendering, and photoshoping .raw files, etc.. you should look at something $1000+
