Great question. Whether it is the right fit for your college student depends on many different factors. Chromebook run the Chrome OS versus a traditional laptop that runs Windows or OS X. Chrome OS is, essentially, the Chrome browser in operating system form. It’s designed to use your Google account to centralize as much of your work as possible, and store it all in the cloud. Most of the applications you’ll use are web-based, and almost all of them will store their data online. That’s the beauty of Chrome OS: If something were to happen to your laptop, ideally you’d be back up and running quickly just by logging in to another one. Chromebooks come with serious limitations. Since they’re designed to be “terminals” rather than your main computer, they don’t have powerful graphics cards, they don’t generally offer a ton of storage, and often use low power processors. Some may have high-end screens and keyboards, but they’ll still have drawbacks over a traditional laptop. If your child needs to use Microsoft Office for assignments, it will not be available for download onto the Chromebook because it can only download programs from the Google App Store and not any other 3rd party software. It does have Google Docs to replace Microsoft Word. That means that whatever the school’s recommended specs are, you’ll probably need to scale them back a bit to reflect the fact that Chromebooks do most of their work on the web. It also means you need to be comfortable with everything you do being online and in the cloud. But, if that’s okay with you, they can be great little machines.
