Chromebooks have quickly grown from a curiosity to a force to be reckoned with.
Offering a simple and stripped-down experience, Google’s Chrome OS is extremely easy to use (if you can use a browser, you’re good), and it comes inside several affordable laptops that start as low as $199. According to research firm NPD, Chromebooks now account for 35 percent of commercial channel notebook sales. Plus, 3 out of the top 10 laptops on Amazon are Chromebooks. However, Microsoft isn’t taking this threat lightly.
These days, you’ll find a number of Windows-powered laptops that cost less than $300, and many under $400 offer touch displays. At the same time, Windows 8 continues to evolve, and now offers a more desktop-friendly interface, along with smarter search. Plus, there are simply some things that Windows laptops can do that Chrome OS can’t.
