There are good chromebooks for cheaper, and the Google Pixelbook continues to be the very best laptop loaded with Chrome OS that you can buy, but when it comes to the best chromebook you can and should spend money on, the $US500 Chromebook Plus v2, like its predecessor, is your best bet. Unlike any other device, it truly understands what the Chromebook should be: a beautifully cheap device that perfectly bridges the gap between tablet and laptop.

I was working on the new Samsung Chromebook Pro, furiously putting together a post that needed to go up. The final touch was an image, but I needed to edit it and didn't want to reach for my normal work machine. So I popped it open in the Adobe Lightroom Android app, flipped the screen around so the computer was in tablet mode, and pulled the stylus out from its holster in the side of the computer. I had my image edited and ready to go in less than two minutes. It felt completely natural, saved me a little bit of time, and hinted at exactly what the future of the Chromebook could be -- genuinely good alternative to the fussiness of Windows and the priciness of MacOS.
Google knows who I want to email before I email them. It knows what I want to type before I type it. It even knows where I want to drive to before I drive. So it was only a matter of time before Google figured out what I wanted to write with my pen before I finished my pen stroke. And now Google's showing off this newest feat of machine learning in Samsung's next major Chrome OS laptops: The Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro.
