  • The Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) blends the best elements from other designs into a single Chrome-based laptop with a slick, convertible form factor, fast performance, all-day battery life, and an affordable price.


  • The $249 Asus Chromebook Flip offers a flexible design, a vibrant touch screen and long battery life, making it a very good laptop-tablet combo.


  • The Chromebook Flip is notable for being one of the lightest Chrome OS laptops on the market. Its versatile and convertible design, solid build quality and affordable price also help set it apart from the pack. The smaller-than-average keyboard will be a turnoff for some, but ultimately, the positives outweigh the negatives.


  • The Lenovo 21e-20 is a solid budget ultraportable laptop, but its middling performance and battery life in our tests mean that it's best suited to those with very modest computing needs.


  • The $269 Lenovo S21e is a fairly capable budget notebook you can take anywhere, but its short battery life and wonky touchpad hold it back.


  • The affordable Dell Chromebook 11 Touch has a touch screen and a beefy, rugged design making it a good choice for classrooms.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 with Core i3 processor delivers speedy performance and lasts all day on a charge.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is more rugged and less expensive than before, but it sacrifices some performance that made the old Dell Chromebook 11 great.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 is an affordable 11-inch Chrome OS laptop that offers excellent battery life, good overall performance, and a durable construction.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 with Core i3 processor delivers speedy performance and lasts all day on a charge.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is more rugged and less expensive than before, but it sacrifices some performance that made the old Dell Chromebook 11 great.


  • The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is a tough midrange convertible-hybrid laptop built to withstand the rigors of the school day.


  • The education-aimed Yoga 11e Chromebook bends into several useful hybrid shapes, but it's also too thick and rugged for commuters who want lightweight hardware for their lightweight operating system.


  • The Yoga 11e feels like a love letter to touch typists, but it falls too far short in other areas.
