What's a good computer for a student?

Episode 1546 (1:27:44)

Mel from Anchorage, AL
Samsung Chromebook Pro

Mel wants to buy his grandson a new computer. He wants to spend around $400 or less. Leo would recommend a Chromebook for that price. There are Windows machines in that price range, but they're not very good. A Chromebook will give him more bang for his buck and it's really secure. But he won't be doing any gaming on it. Most school work is done on them, so it makes for a good school computer. Leo likes the Chromebook Pro, but the Chromebook Plus is also good. It comes with a touchscreen and a stylus.
