We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. A computer is an essential student accessory these days, all the way from elementary grades to high school and beyond. Google Chromebooks are increasingly popular in the classroom and for homework because they are lightweight, inexpensive, and self-healing, and meet most of a student's computing needs. Our selections represent a range of configurations to meet any budget. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

December 18, 2018: Chromebooks are not all created equal, and the rankings here are based on several factors that should be important to students, such as durability, versatility, and battery life. We were super impressed with the Acer Spin 13, which is powerful and tough enough to handle anything a student can dish out.

Fed up with crowding on the east coast, Joe fled for the open spaces. He now lives in the intermountain west where he stays busy with work, children, and grandchildren. When he's not writing or researching, he's probably hiking in the desert or skiing in the mountains.
