We know that as the years progress, technology becomes more and more affordable.
The first laptop to be released to the public sold for $1,795 in 1981, or approximately $5,200 in today’s dollars.
Now the price of laptops has become more affordable, but did you ever believe that you would be able to buy an ASUS 10.1″ 16GB Chromebook Flip for under $60?
So what exactly is the difference between a Chromebook and a laptop? The main difference is the operating system, meaning it does not operate on Windows but a web-based Chrome OS.
Additionally, Chromebook extensively uses the cloud, storing all applications and programs, and is primarily designed for online use. Chromebooks do not have disk drives.
The advantages of Chromebooks are numerous; they load faster than laptops and have much better battery life.
One of the true plusses they offer is that they are more secure, offering better protection against becoming the victim of a hacker.
And then there is the price. In general, even new Chromebooks are less expensive than their laptop counterparts, and if you are willing to purchase a refurbished model, the cost can drop even further.
Case in point, this ASUS Chromebook Flip. Yes, it’s refurbished, meaning there may be some light scuffing on the bevel or case or light scratches or dents on the body, but in all other aspects, it’s as good as new.
