there doesn't seem to be an EASY way to add photos to F'book other than via Google drive ( which is VERY complicated ) , is this correct ?

These laptops are less expensive because they have smaller displays. LCD and LED panels are the single most expensive component of any laptop.

If you have a phone or a tablet, you probably do not need this. Also, you can use this as a tablet but not as a regular laptop.

I would buy a Chromebook as I really don't do much offline, but the one thing I do is watch DVDs, and without that capability, I can't buy one. Such a shame. I hope they make them with disc drives soon.

This is basically a thin client for the google data center. Your data is fully owned and resold by google. Windows in the process of winding down windows 10 and going this way too. Why would you want to do that? Linux and unix are distroying windows spying systems. Just set up your own cloud at home through nextcoud and keep your data confidential. Remember you might be able to use your old laptop as a chromebook.

Chromebooks make sense for most people, hear me out now. You can access social media, outlook, office, gmail, android apps now, and watch movies and listen to music with a Chromebook. I have 4GB RAM, 2 USB-C ports, SD Card, HDMI, 720p camera, Intel Celeron quad-core in my Acer 14" Aluminum and it's more than enough power for those said tasks. If you need to edit music/gaming/movies/photos then a Macbook Air/Pro or PC would suit you better. Other than that, a Chromebook is a very great alternative to the latter.

Just wondering. Wanting a small laptop type computer for printing small phrases for my scrapbooking. I hate my writing so I would rather type it out, print it and cut it down to paste on my scrapbooks. I saw my sons chrome book, he added some photos and made a small video, no big effects just like a slide show, I would like to do that too with my photos. This chromebook thing looks really simple to use for that.
