Is the Chromebook a good computer?

Episode 1343 (1:06:23)

Tom from Long Beach, CA
Acer Chromebook 14

Tom is researching Chromebooks. Leo says Chromebooks are less expensive, more reliable, and secure because it isn't prone to hacking and viruses. If something goes wrong, he can always "Powerwash" it and start over. Leo likes Dell's Chromebook or Acer. He'll want 4GB of RAM.

Tom's budget is $350, and Leo says that Asus is his first choice in that range. Google also sells them directly, though. Having more RAM is more important than storage because Chromebooks prefer to store things in the cloud. The Acer Chromebook 14 is a very nice option at $300.
