Looking for a Chromebook this Holiday?
Looking to give the gift of connectivity this holiday season? Our Director of Technology Regina Cherill has two great Chromebook options for you to consider gifting:
- This Samsung is a great entry-level laptop. It’s nearly identical to what we’re using at school: super sturdy, decent graphics and it is maintenance free. All the updates happen automatically and since it’s a Chromebook, it doesn’t have a hard drive to fill up. The battery lasts 11 hours and charges up very quickly. Total Price: $174
- If you want a touchscreen with your Chromebook I recommend this Acer model. The screen folds up completely in either direction and kids can draw right on the screen with a stylus or their finger (just like an iPad). It’s a tad more expensive, but might be worth it if you have a younger child at home who hasn’t learned to use the trackpad of a mouse yet. Total Price: $259
