    The chromebook itself.is awesome but the element where the charger plugs into breaks easily. To fix it, it cost more than the computer itself! We bought 2 of these and they lasted not even 2 years because of this!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Good laptop for the price of it.
    Reviewed by nobody - March 6, 2022

    I don't understand why other people say it's not great or something. This would be the second Chromebook I have owned and this is a pretty good laptop. Affordable and easy to use. If you don't understand the techie stuff or constant updates from other platforms, this laptop is just perfect for you. I would recommend this laptop or any other Chromebook series to anyone who just wants something simple to use.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Overpriced
    Reviewed by Ck - February 5, 2022

    We bought this Chromebook for $199.99 back in June 2021. Right now they have a touchscreen for around this same price. Way overpriced for what you get. Tired of the price game Best buy plays online. Would not recommend purchasing at Best Buy for this reason.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
