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. 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.
