Pros: Chrome OS is easy to learn & even easier to use, unlike those other OS's (Windows, Apple OS, etc.). No worries about viruses. OS & program app updates occur unobtrusively, with no need for you to get involved. Lots of FREE programs available for it in the Chrome webstore.
The Lenovo Chromebook is one of the best Chromebooks you can buy today, & Newegg has it priced very reasonably (as low as $190.). With 4 GB of RAM & an Intel N2842 CPU, it performs very well. While you might prefer 32 GB of data storage, 16 GB is adequate, especially since you can add up to 512 GB more with an SD card, & unlimited storage through the USB-2 & USB-3 ports (& any USB hubs you might attach to them). As if that wasn't enough, Google adds an additional 100 GB of cloud storage (free for 2 years) to the 15 GB you get with your Google account. Most printers work fine with Google Cloud Print. Skype can be made to work fine on this device (unless you're a techie, get a friend who is one to help you!). I also have a Desktop, a Laptop, a Tablet, & a Smartphone, but this Chromebook is my choice for most things that I do. It's lightweight, very portable, the battery lasts all day long, WiFi works well, keyboard is acceptable (want a bigger one, just plug it in & it works immediately), touchpad is OK (I use a mouse most of the time, but you may be fine without one). Yes, the display is only 1366x768 pixels, but you can connect it via HDMI cable to an external display with 1920x1080 resolution, or even a large screen TV to enjoy Youtube & Netflix.
Would I buy it again if I had it to do over -- YES, in a heartbeat!!
Cons: Wow, I can't really think of anything to say here.
I could always use a faster processor on all my computers, but then this one is fast enough for what you will do on it.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend editing video on it, or creating a website, but other than that, there really isn't much of anything you can't do on it.
OK, you COULD edit video on it, or create a website, but I wouldn't recommend you do so.
Pros: Charge your Smartphone or Tablet & use it at the same time!
Most charging cords are too short to plug your portable device into the charger & wall socket, yet go on using it. With one of these cables, no more problem.

This review is from: ORICO DCX-4U 34W 6.8A 4-Port Portable Travel Wall USB Charger with Foldable Plug for iPhone 6s / 6 / 6 plus, iPad Air 2 / mini 3, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge / Note 5, HTC M9, Nexus and More - Black
Pros: This USB Charger has 4 ports, 2 of which are fast charging (2.4 amps), is compact, & will eliminate the need for most other chargers that you now use.
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of them (pair & a spare), because they are so handy.
One goes with me whenever we travel (3 smartphones + 2 tablets). People were always competing for who could use the charger -- now there is no competition, just happy users & fully-charged portable devices.
