Dave Briggs – Is a Chromebook any good for bike touring? – Choosing a laptop for bike touring

529

In this video I take a look at my Chromebook, and ask is a Chromebook any good for bike touring? We all know that we want to keep weight down when bicycle touring, so if you want to use a laptop for bike touring a Chromebook might be a good choice. Do some of its drawbacks make it a deal breaker though? Watch the video to see my thoughts on the Chromebook laptop.
Update – In the 2nd of February 2018, my Acer Chromebook laptop is still going strong and I am very happy with the build quality. Some of the drawbacks to using I mention in this video still remain, but that said, I rarely if eve use my Windows laptop now. I almost always use my Google Chromebook, and I work on it up to 12 hours a day! During this time, the battery life has remained surprisingly reliable.
