What's Important in a Chrombook

Since Chromebooks greatly rely on online programs, wifi speed is one of the most important components of a Chromebook.  802.11ac wifi is 3 times faster and has a greater  than any other form of wifi. It's also better in areas where a lot of people are using the wifi such as schools and libraries.

Battery life is very important as Chromebooks are so mobile that they are not always plugged in. The charge time is from the manufacturer. You rarely get that much battery life it is a good figure to use to compare Chromebooks.

It has a turbo boost option for it's processing speed so it can go from a more power saving 2.16 GHz to the more powerful 2.58 GHz when you need some extra processing power.

A quick note on wifi speeds for some of the products above:

ASUS Chromebook C213SA: This Chromebook is listed as having 802.11 ac in every location on Amazon and the company's own website except it does mention the slower 802.11 a/b/g/n in one sentence. It is extremely likely to have 802.11 ac wifi but we felt we should make a note of it here.

2017 HP 14’’ Premium Chromebook HD SVA: There are two locations that we found on Amazon's website where it mentions "802.11 a." Since no one has built a computer with just "802.11 a" for a long time, we are pretty sure that it's just a typo.  It is extremely likely to have 802.11 ac wifi but we we do our best to pass on as much information as we can.
