Thinking of buying a new Chromebook but not sure which one to choose?

Use our comprehensive specs comparison table and buying guide to quickly see the differences between each model, and find the best Chromebook for your needs.

When Chromebooks first appeared in the summer of 2011, it looked like Google had created a computing system without being entirely sure who it was aimed at. However since then, while not yet having quite taken over the world, Chromebooks have steadily increased in popularity, and matured from something which was experimental into a mainstream device.

IPS / Touchscreen: Where IPS or touch is mentioned in the model name, it’s just to help distinguish between different models with the same name – please use the IPS and Touchscreen buttons above to highlight all entries with these features. It’s likely, although not entirely certain that the display on the Samsung Chromebook Plus v2 is IPS.
Stylus: Samsung Chromebook Plus v2, CTL NL7TW-360, HP Chromebook x2, Lenovo 500E, Acer Chromebook Tab 10, Acer Chromebook Spin 13 models and Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 come bundled with a stylus. * For Acer Spin 11 and Dell 5190 2-in-1 models, stylus support is optional.
Notes: Octane scores marked with a red star are estimates based on performance of identical CPU models.
