It has 2 USB-C ports which can output HDMI with an appropriate cable.

I don't know about this one specifically, but I found that 4GB ram and 32GB of storage to not be enough for installing Android apps or having several tabs open in chrome. So I would consider this a 1 chrome tab at a time chromebook. It can do a little more, but not likely very much.

Storage doesn't affect the number of tabs open, only memory. I have a dozen tabs open at any given time, including heavy SPA applications, without any issue using 4GB of memory.

Storage affects the Android apps you can install though, which is what I was referring to. Maybe your websites are more lightweight than mine, but I used Google own services (sheets and docs) and they were sluggish when more than one were running.

This is comparable to an Amazon Fire tablet... with a keyboard.
Crap.

Did you actually use this particular model or one with the same processor? Which Fire tablet are you comparing it with as they mike quite a few. Do you have a suggestion for a different one that is better at the same price?

I bought the $70 Chromebook with a 15" screen, so far it serves its intended purpose effortlessly. This model gets > 12hrs when typing docs offline, which translates to uninterrupted productivity for days. For schoolwork cheap chromebooks are the ultimate machines.

Obviously ChromeOS isn't suitable for content creation, but in my case I have a windows PC for intense tasks and art.

Nothing at all wrong with this model for your first Chromer. Like someone else said, 11,000 Octane score will be pretty snappy. 4gb is fine for a Chromebook and this one seems to have a nice 1080 screen. I, myself, prefer more compact Chromebooks.

That Celeron N3350 is a hateful slob though, and with 1080p, is even worse. Soooooo slow. In this generation, better off with the MediaTek powered Lenovo models, or newer ones with the at least somewhat useable Celeron N4200 or Pentium Silver N5000 if you want to stay low end. The N3xxx Celerons are terrible, though. The Celeron 2955U from the Acer C720 from 2013 puts it to shame even.

Even at $200 this says avoid. $50 is closer to the actual value, and that's only because of the mouse and sleeve. The Chromebook itself isn't worth $20, but to each their own, I guess.

Note when running android apps in chrome os. There is a bug that slows chromeos down. See the following thread for reference.

I have a similar laptop with the same specs and it runs well without android apps.

I don't mind criticizing but you should offer alternatives. N4200 has a Octane of 11500 which is right in line with this. Chromebooks with an N5000 are closer to $500.
