5 out of 5 eggs best choice for most seniors, "non-techies", students, or young children 12/18/2016

This review is from: Acer C740-C32M-CA Bilingual Chromebook Intel Celeron 3205U (1.50 GHz) 4 GB DDR3L Memory 16 GB eMMC 11.6" ComfyView Chrome OS 64-Bit

Pros: inexpensive, simple to learn, simple to use, no viruses

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: An excellent computer for beginners, seniors, or children – next-to-impossible to "screw it up".

Inexpensive; east to learn; easy to use; few problems; good support for printers with Google Cloud Printing; automatic data backups with Google Drive Cloud Storage; good compatibility with files from Word + Excel + PowerPoint + PDF's + JPEG pictures + MP3 audio + MP4 video; immune to viruses (at least at present time).

Be sure Chromebook has 4 GB of RAM, SD memory card slot, & HDMI port.

Get an Intel Celeron 3205U CPU (Octane Benchmark of 15000). If you have lots of money, you could get an Intel i3 or m3 CPU (Octane Benchmark of 23000), or even an Intel i5 or m5 CPU (Octane Benchmark of 28500).

As with any laptop, consider getting an external 23" LED-backlit display to connect to HDMI port, for a much larger & useful display when at home. Can configure external display to mirror what is on Chromebook display, or to be a separate additional desktop space.

You have 15 GB of cloud storage with a Google account, plus an additional 100 GB of cloud storage free for 2 years with a Chromebook. After that, if want extra 100 GB, it will cost $2.79 per month (or 1000 GB for $13.99 per month).
You also get about 9 GB of local storage for when not connected to Internet. If that isn't enough, can add up to 512 GB local storage on an SD card, or multiple TB on an external hard drive or Solid State Drive.

Turns on in about 11 seconds, & off in 1 second.

Battery life has to be seen to be believed -- it lasts all day long (about 9 or 10 hours)!

If you are thinking of getting this as a gift for someone who will ask your assistance in using it, then because it is so much simpler than Windows or Apple O.S., you will spend a lot less time helping them!

All in all, a Chromebook is an excellent "first computer", or a good choice for an additional computer.

This review is from: ASUS C201PA-DS02 Chromebook Rockchip RK3288C (1.80 GHz) 4 GB LPDDR3 Memory 16 GB eMMC SSD 11.6" Chrome OS

Pros: Inexpensive; east to learn; easy to use; few problems; good support for printers through Google Cloud printing; automatic backups through Google Drive cloud storage; good compatibility with files from Word + Excel + PowerPoint + PDF's + JPEG pictures + MP3 audio + MP4 video; so far is immune to viruses; Asus makes solid reliable products.
Newegg delivered this product in record time!!

Cons: None really, but see below:
The Rockchip CPU is not bad (Octane Benchmark for web browser performance of 7000), but if you can spend another $50. or so, try to get a Chromebook with an Intel Celeron 3205U CPU (Octane Benchmark of 15000).
If you have more money than you know what to do with, you could get an Intel i3 or m3 CPU (Octane Benchmark of 23000), or even an Intel i5 or m5 CPU (Octane Benchmark of 28500).

Other Thoughts: As with any laptop, consider getting an external 23" LED-backlit display to connect to the HDMI port on this Chromebook, for a much larger & useful display when you are at home. You can configure the external display to mirror what is on the Chromebook display, or to be a separate additional desktop space.
You will have 15 GB of cloud storage with your Google account, plus an additional 100 GB of cloud storage free for 2 years because you bought a Chromebook. After that, if you want the extra 100 GB, it will cost you $2.79 per month (or you can have 1000 GB for $13.99 per month).
