A List of Chromebooks

The list below shows the latest Chromebooks that we have in the database. To be listed here, a Chromebook must be lightweight (generally under 1.3KG / 2.8lb) or focused on mobility in some other way. For example, rugged enough to be a travel PC.

Click through for detailed information on each Chromebook and ChromeOS tablet including processor and memory information, links to reviews, videos and a selection of alternatives. We update our database regularly so check back here for the latest Chromebooks.

Read about Chromebook advantages. Read about Chromebook security, and a 7-step Chromebook security and privacy process.

Recent Chromebooks (from about 2017 onwards) have the ability to run Android apps from the Google Play Store. Although many apps aren’t optimised for the big screen it adds an element of ‘discovery.’ In some cases the apps work extremely well on the bigger screen and high-end processors.

I took a look at some of the most efficient chromebooks in February 2023.

Don’t forget these important points when considering any ChromeOS system:

  • ChromeOS has a Linux subsystem and Linux app support.
  • Chromebooks support Android apps natively
  • A Chromebook can easily be managed remotely
  • You can reset a Chromebook in about 60 seconds

Mobile PCs from the Database:
Google Pixel Slate, 725gm
The first of the Google tablet-focused ChromeOS PCs aiming at entry-level computing to high-level processing, all on the Chrome operating system with Android app capability and Chrome OS optimisations for the tablet. It competes with many mobile PCs and yet doesn't use a classic desktop operating system. We've always liked the simplicity, security and stability of Chrome OS and the breadth of Android apps within it so if you're not focused on video editing, this could be an efficient choice of PC.
We like the fact that there's a 48Wh battery in this, and it weighs just 725 gramms. This is one of the lightest 12.3-inch tablets you can buy with that sort of battery capacity.
Acer Chromebook 14, 1542gm

The cheap ASUS Chromebook C201 is a lightweight, compact and very portable notebook with an 11.6-inch display so with its claimed 13 hour battery life partly due to the Rockchip 3288 SoC energy efficiency - designed for everyday all-day on-the-go computing!

The Acer Chromebook 15 C910 is the largest screen Chromebook and has some unique and defining features. Apart from it being the first Chromebook with a 15.6-inch IPS full HD display, it is also the first Chromebook with the latest Intel processor based on Broadwell. Also notable are the 4GB RAM, dual band AC wifi. It will be interesting to see how the market picks up on this Chromebook. It may be too heavy these days for portability but there are a lot of 15.6 inch laptops out there being used as desktop replacements.

Light at just over 1kg. Unusually for a laptop a quad core Rockchip processor (Cortex A17) is employed. This will currently be the lowest priced Chromebook.
Google Chromebook Pixel (2015), 1500gm
The new Google Chromebook Pixel 2015 comes in the same size and weight as the older one we know. With now a standard of 8GB of RAM and an Intel Core i5 Broadwell U Processor running at 2.2GHz this machine has some serious power to offer. If this isn't enough for you there is a Core i7 version running at 2.4GHz supported by 16GB of RAM and 64GB of Storage. The regular i5 version comes with 32GB Storage and both versions include 1TB of Google Drive storage free for 3 Years. In terms of ports the Pixel has 2 USB 3.1 Type C ports (these are the reversible ports) which offer HDMI and DisplayPort capabilities via adapters as well as serving as charging ports. Additionally there are 2 USB 3.0 ports, a headphone/mic combo jack and an SD card reader. The 12.85" IPS display with a 3:2 aspect ratio has a 2560x1700 pixels resolution.
Acer C740, 1300gm

Acer Chromebook 15, 2200gm
Acer are offering the Chromebook 15 with a 5th-generation Core i3 or Celeron 3205U processor based on the same architecture. The standard model comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and the 1366 x 768 pixel display. 4GB RAM and 32GB storage will be an option. The weight of the Acer Chromebook 15 is 2.2KG making it the heaviest Chromebook on the market but until another 15-inch option comes along (we?re expecting more than one competitor to appear over the next months, if not the next few days) there?s no real comparison. In terms of performance over the 4th-generation processors we?re not expecting a huge leap. The move to a 14nm process saves energy and allows Turbo Boost (where available) to operate for longer and there could be an improvement in the GPU, but don?t expect massive changes. Video playback battery life might get a boost through the new on-board audio decoder that?s in the Core i3 at least.
Acer C720-3871, 1360gm
The Acer C720-3871 Chromebook is based on Intels Haswell platform and offers battery life of up to 8.5hrs.

ASUS Chromebook C300, 1406gm
This 13.3-inch Chromebook has some competition but thanks to a large battery should have great battery life. Like the ASUS C200 this is a well-built Chromebook with solid specifications. Performance isn't class-leading and the screen resolution might put some off.
ASUS Chromebook C200, 1133gm
An incredibly good value Chromebook with style and battery life on its side. It's silent too. The Baytrail-M procesing platform has it's limits so if you're into serious web-application usage you might want to look at the Acer C720 running on the Haswell-architechture platform but for casual use it's quick and easy-going.
