Why I Want a High-End Chrome OS Experience
There are lots of cheap Chromebooks that provide a great value and are good for many tasks.
This may be the reason many just can’t wrap their head around why one may want a high-end, premium Chrome OS device like a Google Pixelbook. They think it must be for running some kind of fancy Linux or Android apps, or for processing huge amounts of media and data. See for example these Reddit threads where some users wonder in disbelief:
- People with high end Chromebooks What do you use them for and do you need all that performance?
- “Overpowered” Chrome OS devices
I have such a high-end Chrome OS device, an i7 ASUS Chromebox 3 with 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD. But I got it for doing the exact same stuff a cheap Chromebook can do, just with better performance.
