Before buying one of these, it might be a good idea to check when ChromeOS updates will stop for that particular model, the so-called Auto Update Expiration (AUE) date.
Or you can update them to CloudReady, a “virtual clone of Chrome OS”.
I actually found a 2 year-old Chromebook (Lenovo N23 Yoga) in mint condition that someone tossed out. My main complaint is that it isn’t compatible with a lot of Android apps (Zoom, for example). I know Chrome OS and Android are different, but aren’t they from the same company? Other than that (and low screen resolution), good for free!
I purchased 3 Chromebooks over 3 years ago. All of these were for (now former) Windows users who were convinced they HAD TO HAVE Windows. All still in service.
