As most of you read the site you know I am not a huge fan of Chromebooks but in this case, I think this device could be a cheap low-cost solution for a large family who wants to get their child a computer to work on their school work. To start out with the Chromebook is cheaper than a cell phone and has pretty good hardware specs.

While I have preached 8 gigs of ram for running Windows 10 but on a Chromebook like this 4 gigs of ram will work fine. There is a lower end model with 2 gigs of ram which would work but I think 2 gig ram is a little low for the cost savings of 2 dollars. I would like to point out as well the Chromebook is not a no-name brand this is still Samsung hardware which has a very good reputation in the Chromebook marketplace.
