This Interactive Chromebook Comparison Tool Helps You Find The Best Model For You

If you're in the market for a Chromebook (and why shouldn't you be?) the sheer number of models and types can be a little daunting. The folks at Starry Hope have put together a tool that will help you quickly compare and get details on the specs that matter to you. After all, Chromebooks are great for portable, web-focused workers, but they're also useful for students who may want an affordable, powerful laptop for class. The comparison tool itself (over at the link below) is simple enough -- you can filter for manufacturer or brand if you prefer; move a slider to only see Chromebooks with more than 2, 4 or 8+ GB of RAM or 16/32GB of onboard storage; click to only see models with full HD displays and select between Intel and ARM Chromebooks.

If you want a touchscreen Chromebook, you can toggle that condition on or off as well, choose only USB-C models or even drill down to something as specific as models with backlit keyboards. All in all, it's a pretty robust tool, and takes into account virtually every spec that will matter when you're shopping for one. Once you find a few models you like, click them one at a time to build out the comparison chart at the bottom of the page, and then you can look over an apples-to-apples chart that runs down the features of each one, including the price.

Chromebook Comparison and 2016 Buyer's Guide [Starry Hope]

Thanks Jim for sending in the tip!


    Is this article even really relevant to Australia chromebooks are near impossible to buy? Or has this changed since I looked a couple months ago?

      Not irrelevant, you just have to purchase from amazon or b&h video and a few others. other words, near impossible to buy, at least locally. Some online stores stock them but the range is usually very limited (so good luck trying to find a specific model) and retail has completely ditched them. Importing one has it's own set of problems such as no local warranty and the need to find an Australian power adapter separately.

        Maybe with the introduction of Android app compatibility they may start gaining more traction here but I doubt it.
