If you’ve been comparing Cyber Monday laptop deals 2014 like I have, you’re no doubt as excited as I am. I’ve been in the market for a new laptop even if I have one that is currently a solid piece of hardware, I’d like one that is lighter in total weight while having decent enough hardware to be used as a multi-media machine. I want to be able to stream videos and music easily, browse the web without lag and have it used as a word processor while doing all of those things. A machine that can multitask is key these days.
Fortunately, it looks like the Chromebook is going to be one of the better choices out there right now. Chromebooks are beginning to change the way that we look at laptop computing. They’re slimmed down machines with Google’s own OS Chromium installed which is lightweight enough to be used as a casual computing device but robust enough to do some heavy duty streaming. I feel like that they are the best choice out of most of the other laptops that I’ve been looking at – at least the best choice in terms of what I’m personally looking for out of a laptop.
There are plenty of other laptops on the market that are great but I don’t need a gaming rig. Gaming on a laptop is difficult to say the least – the monitors are rarely big enough to be impressive enough. If I want to game I’m going to end up building my own machine for it. This is the best time of year to do it, too, as many components are kits are going to be on sale through sites like Tigerdirect or Egghead. Anyone will be able to build themselves a great machine for cheap!
