I’m educating myself on Chromebooks and watched several of the Button shows.  In one show, Jim was planning to buy an HP chromebook.  Which one did he get?

I’ve searched for top chromebooks in 2019 as a starting point.  Not ready to buy at this point.  I wondered about them having such low storage since laptops feature 1TB storage as common, but it sounds like you rely on Google Drive cloud storage.

I love my laptops but they are 5 years and 8 years old.  Still work great; however, if I need to replace I would like to consider a Chromebook.

I got the HP X2 Chromebook. https://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp…..-12-f015nr

It had some features I wanted, like the 2 cameras, touchscreen, ability to run Play Store apps, and the stylus. I really haven’t used the stylus or the rear camera much.

We do use Google Drive for storage and I have an external hard drive for local files. File management on Chrome is getting better but is not what I’m used to.

Overall, I’m happy with the choice.
