Asus is one of the swankiest Chromebooks we’ve ever seen

Between the thin profile and silver shell, it looks suspiciously like the MacBook. Is it a coincidence, I wonder? The posh design is cool and all, but let’s discuss the guts.
The Chromebook Flip earned a score of 367.79 in Basemark, which is a web-based application that evaluates performance. That’s serious power. We weren’t too surprised by that result, though. Our review unit had an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor and 4GB RAM, a step-up from the usual Chromebook fare. We also discovered that the machine can handle up to fifteen open tabs at once. Multitaskers, get in line.

The superb 1080p display deserves its own call-out, too. It provides really crisp images. When I watched gameplay footage for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the rolling hills of Hyrule were so vividly green. The colors are rich and lovely, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The only downside is the cost. Most Chromebooks fall in the range of $199-$250, with $300 being the sweet spot. If you’re able to shell out the money, I’d spring for it. Chromebooks are evolving faster than ever, especially this new wave of 2-in-1’s.
Acer Chromebook 11 N7 C731T-C42N
If you’re a bonafide klutz (like me), this durable Acer might be the laptop for you. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve doused my keyboard in tea or water over the years, and if I’d had this one, it wouldn’t have been an issue. This Acer delivers a military-grade chassis and unique “gutter” system, so it’s pretty tough. Between the durable shell and water resistance, it’s basically klutz-proof.
Acer’s gutter system drains spilled fluids out of the bottom of the Chromebook, so naturally I had to try it out. I’m not sure what I expected, but this Acer continued to function after I purposefully dumped water into the keyboard.
But what surprised us most was the fantastic battery life. When we put this Acer through our browsing test—which continuously cycles through popular websites like Twitch and Facebook—it lasted a total of eight hours. That’s more than a full school day.
Samsung Chromebook Plus
Like the Asus Chromebook Flip, this 2-in-1 has an eye-catching design. Unlike most Chromebooks, which are pretty nondescript, this one has a bit of flair to it. Made of magnesium alloy, it looks and feels like a premium machine, and the monochrome Google Chrome logo really pops against the silver lid. The body is also sleek and lightweight, but has a little give.
The 1600p display is top-notch, too. When I watched the Ready Player One trailer, the deep purples of the fantastical worlds inside OASIS, a video game, were sharp and vivid. There’s a glossy finish, though, so you’re going to be dealing with some reflection in brighter environments. The reflection is especially noticeable when the Samsung is in tablet mode.
