This is a very good looking laptop for this price. It has a lightweight design and is incredibly simple to set up. You can get started using this laptop incredibly quickly, and the fact that it looks a lot more expensive than it is goes a long way to countering some of the cons. It works hard, and the loading time is incredible. The keyboard is fantastic too, although that is somewhat negated by the fact that the sound from the speakers is not great. You will have to look after this machine as it is prone to scratches, especially on the back. Where this really shines as a budget laptop is in the battery life. It will last a long time when straight out of the box, and that battery will not decay much either. That means that you can expect around 10-hours of battery life between charges, making this ideal for those prioritizing portability.
For everyday basic use it's hard to beat the HP Chromebook 14. If you're looking for a laptop that lets you do the basics, like browsing the web, emailing, or even some basic photo editing, then this will work perfectly fine. The resolution is good enough to get by, although the casing of the laptop itself can feel a little lightweight if you're used to a more solid laptop feel. This is a very easy laptop to use, and the learning curve is very short indeed. It's light and slim, meaning that portability is very high. If you're looking for something that can do more challenging tasks then you might want to look elsewhere, but for the basics this is a good all-round machine that works hard and works well. It has a user-friendly and responsive trackpad, but if you were hoping to use Office then you need to know that most Chromebooks will not do so. This is a good little machine that will do all of the things that most people need.
As one of the nicest looking Chromebooks in this price range, the ASUS Chromebook C300 is a good option for those that are used to Chromebooks and are looking for a second laptop. It has a remarkably fun to use keyboard that has just the right amount of click and spring to make it fun to work with, and the battery life is absolutely phenomenal. As one of the cheaper Chromebooks on the market, expect slightly less processing power an RAM compared to more expensive versions, however, this doesn't stop this choice being a great machine for performing the basics on. Ideal for more casual users, or those that are looking for a second laptop to do grunt work on, you won't go wrong with this choice. If you try to do too much with this laptop you're going to notice slow-downs and the occasional crash, but that shouldn't put you off if you're looking for a reliable laptop that can do the essentials.
These laptops have an eye-catching package with a bright and refreshing look about them. They could even play the role of an accessory to compliment a specific sense of style.
