Is this the ideal notebook you should buy?

Yes, it looks like a good deal but the question arises, should you buy it? We’ve said it before that they’re smart and affordable, but Chromebooks aren’t for everyone. The Flip C214 is aimed at students, but there are also limitations because a student who wants to work with power-demanding software won’t be comfortable using a Chromebook like the Flip C214.

Executives also need laptops for work, and a Chromebook can meet their needs. But again, if you’re in an area where a lot of heavy PC-involved loads are involved, you might want to skip the Chromebook Flip C214. Everyday tasks like taking notes on Google Docs, browsing in Chrome, etc. are all well managed, but as soon as you turn to software from Adobe or Microsoft, you won’t like what you see. This is because a number of apps that run on your Windows machine cannot run on a Chromebook.

These are just a few limitations that we have mentioned. You should know that Chromebooks have a very specific use case scenario where you just need to click with your needs. If not, you may have drained all your money buying a laptop that would only act as a paperweight. Have more questions about Chromebooks?
