Chromebooks boast great security features and a simple, intuitive UI, which makes them perfect laptops for kids or anyone lacking tech aptitude. They're often lower-powered than their Windows and MacOS counterparts, making them more suited for straightforward tasks like web browsing and word processing than demanding workloads such as gaming or content creation.

If you just need a lightweight laptop for answering emails and joining video calls, a Chromebook could be the right choice for you. Even on Prime Day, it's easy to spend too much money on a laptop when you just need something for basic work.

Remember that specs are important; if you plan on keeping dozens of Chrome tabs open at once, you'll want a better processor and more RAM. Local storage isn't a huge issue for Chromebooks thanks to their cloud-focused design, but if you plan on installing lots of apps, be sure to pick one with a proper SSD rather than eMMC storage.
