My son is starting Year 13 and the school want them to provide the own device , the preference being a Chromebook since they are heavily tied into Google Education services. We could buy him a Windows device but I feel the cost of a laptop may e more than we want to pay specifically for hi schoolwork since he doesn’t require much storage as all there work is cloud based. They also need a device with keyboard that will not require charging through the day. many Chromebooks appear to have battery life at approx. 10 hours so would fit the bill for a school day.
He has specifically stated he doesn’t want an Google branded machine as the school have a batch and he felt they were not up to spec for their purposes. Does anyone use Chromebooks that could advise as to any latest devices that they could recommend?
I would probably get 4gb RAM models to be sure it has enough memory to cover any apps he may be using and to be a bit future proofed. Any other spec information I should be looking for e.g. processor?
Thanks in advance
