should Linus review a chromebook?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i think Linus should review a chromebook. a cheap one. 


i have a chromebook with a celeron N3060, which feels way faster than my Windows 10 tablet with a Z8350, because a chromebook doesn have Windows crap consuming cpu. 


i´d like the review to be from the perspective of someone who already has a main computer, because realistically a cheap chromebook like that would be hard to use as a main machine.

I mean it would be interesting, but I think that it would be quite a negative video from the view of someone like Linus.


On a side note I thought that cromebooks had kinda died in the past year or so, but that is probably because of the education I am taking where a chromebook wouldn't be up to the task no matter what.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)


Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)
