I’m giving up on Chromebooks and switching to a Surface instead

In the words of our very own Andrew Myrick, Chromebooks are simple, versatile laptops that can be excellent tools for students and professionals alike. These handy laptop/tablet 2-in-1s are designed to meet most of your needs on the go, like a lite portable workstation. But they’re not ideal for everyone, something that I’ve been coming to terms with over my time with one.

Since I travel a lot, it only made sense to get one of these sleek things myself. My everyday machine is an HP Victus 16, which is a chunky gal. It is an absolute nightmare to have to take it out of my hand carry every time I’m crossing airport security, which sometimes happens multiple times on a single journey if I have connecting flights.

I wasn’t expecting smooth sailing because we’ve all heard that ChromeOS has its quirks. However, some people swear by Chromebooks and how capable these budget devices really are. After using a Chromebook on and off for more than a year now, I am forced to admit that it’s not all rainbows and sunshine. It fails to meet my needs, and I’ve come to the point where I’m just going to get a Microsoft Surface instead.

ChromeOS has so much potential. It could morph into the perfect love child of Android and Windows someday. But for now, I personally feel like that day is very far off. Students might make do with a Chromebook, but working professionals are going to struggle immensely when working off of one for more than a day or two.
