re: Using a Chromebook For Web Development: Part 2 VIEW POST


Thank you for this Angela. I recently had a hard drive die on my main desktop and realized all I really need to do what I need is a terminal, an editor, and some tooling. A GUI OS helps this, but is not 100% required. So I was considering a Chromebook. Please let us know how it performs day-to-day.

As for the architecture, you are correct n seeing arm not as popular as amd64 or x86_64. For $150 bucks though, not a bad email/video/light editing piece of hardware.


So far, it’s performing brilliantly. The 10 hours of battery life is a plus. Also, it’s so portable. It fits in my purse. I can run android apps so that helps with anything else I need,
