I don't see another lower specced Chromebook performing as well. That should be the measure of if this is overkill. You can go on any other Chromebook thread and find performance trade off listed as part of the deal. Nothing wrong with it if you can deal with those but this certainly has a place. The price is alright too. You are also future proofing instead of contributing to eWaste.

I get your point. The question is "Can Chrome OS and Play Store apps run any faster/better if you had better hardware"? If your answer was to that question, sure, by all means downgrade to that. This would be an overkill.
My experience with the i3 version was on the 4GB version. My recollection of the 4gig version was that it was not as snappy when loading websites with multiple images (like blogs or even SD). I never found the i3-8GB version on sale.

This is a sort of sleeper premium Chromebook. Nothing about this Chromebook screams "premium" and yet this thing has the horsepower to smoke any prior premium Chromebooks on the market. This model is also likely to support Steam in the future given the specifications. The touchscreen also means Android app support will be very natural.

Not a lot of potential ChromeOS users would need such a powerful Chromebook. And at $400 there are plenty of solid Windows laptops (with basically similar specs) which would have a great service life and user experience.

However, if you have been looking for the latest thing in premium Chromebooks something like this quad-core Intel i-series CPU model would likely represent a solid entry barring the arrival of the next AMD-equipped models sometime in the "future".

Good luck!
Jon

Windows on ChromeOS is still outside the domain of typical users. While any ChromeOS user with an x86-based Chromebook can easily install and operate a Linux sandbox, and of course running Android apps is trivially easy, Official support for Windows is still restricted (for now) to operation using Parallels desktop, but that solution isn't really targeted to individual users.

There are some Chromebooks which advanced users have worked to make bootable into other operating systems. My first generation Galaxy Chromebook would be a solid Windows device if I cared to jump through the myriad of hoops which would enable me to boot into a Windows with incomplete driver support (potentially losing me features like audio support and/or keyboard backlight functionality).

I look forward to a future where a Windows sandbox is as trivial to operate as the Linux sandbox. In the meantime, the closest configuration that would allow a single system to live in both ChromeOS and Windows worlds is likely via ChromeOS Flex (though that puts a lot more restrictions on the ChromeOS environment for now).

Good luck!
Jon

I use a Spin 713 as my daily - consuming media and working on cloud / online based applications (Office 365, etc.) with lots of tabs open. At this price point with the performance (i5 with 8GB memory) and connections (HDMI, 2 USB C, etc), this HP is a solid deal.

I've been surprised how versatile a Chromebook is . I also have an Intel Whitebook (LAPQC71A) for gaming. A Dell Lattitude for work - which sits at work due to its weight and lack of battery life.... Chromebook replaced it.

Just know what you need, how you interact with technology, and your price point.

This is supported with updates until 2029 so it's not just specs you need now you should be thinking about but 7 years from now too,

I've reached the conclusion that I'm actually willing to pay $400 for a Chromebook. My concern regarding this model is the battery life. Does anyone have it and can comment on the actual battery duration? Also can these batteries be replaced when they get old and useless?

You don't have to wait that long. 2-3 years would do. Only if dual boot to Windows was easy.

Excellent for ChromeOS at this price point and specs. I have two Lenovo Duet and can say the processor and 4GB RAM is definitely limiting and sluggish at times.
