In our Chromebook 15 review, we liked its metal chassis, 1080p display, and solid keyboard. Although the display could be brighter, it earned an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars from us.
The Chromebook 15 weighs 3.7 pounds and measures 14.9 x 10.1 x 0.8-inches to fit in just about any 15-inch laptop bag. However, it's notably bigger than the Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA (2.6 pounds, 11.9 x 8.3 x 0.6 inches) and the Samsung Chromebook Pro (2.4 pounds, 11.06 x 8.7 x 0.6 inches)
With two USB Type-C ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack, and a microSD card slot, the Chromebook 15's port selection offers all the essentials.
The quad-core Intel Pentium N4200-powered Chromebook 15 we tested had enough power to manage simple tasks, like word processing, web browsing or streaming video. With a Celeron N3350 dual-core CPU and 4GB of RAM set up, this Chromebook should also do the trick.
As for reliability, the Chromebook lasted 9 hours and 7 minutes our Laptop Mag battery test to get you through a full day of school or work.
