Unsure of what chromebook to buy?
If your new to buying a chromebook and don’t know what to pick, don’t worry heres some tips. Think of it like buying a car (except not nearly of financial commitment). In reality all chromebooks and cars work the same. Chromebooks gets you access to the internet and cars get you from point A to B. All chromebooks work the same but some look fancier then others but they still work the same because most chromebooks have 2gb or 4gb of memory and a 16gb or 32gb hard drive. Really hard to tell the difference on performance as it depends on the internet connection speed your connected to not the actual chromebook. But some chromebooks have fancy options (like fancy cars) such as: touch screen, extended battery life, bigger screen (most are 11” but some are 14”), fancier look, or finger print scanner for security. We will highlight the options in the ads very easily.
Why buy a used chromebook vs new?
This is a mantra I live by. When it comes to cars and electronics I always buy used. I feel it’s a waste of money to buy new because you spend twice as much and in a week your component is used and worth half the value. Also when you buy a used electronic you help the world by cutting back on electronic waste and keeping the component in circulation but creating more carbon footprints.
What grade should I buy?
So im a cheapskate. I don’t care how many scratchs or dings are on the component as I know it all works the same. It also helps breaks down on the stress of scratching it. If its scratched already then who cares. Also you get a much better deal. So on components ill buy B and C grade all day long (especially C grades for my kids). The d grade is best for using if you need parts or just a beater for short term to go on vacation or something. F grade usually is for repair facilities who uses the components as parts because its cheaper buying an F grade component for the part vs a individual part. If your sitting on a pile of cash and don’t care then Grade A/A+/new is the way to go. On most electronics youll never need the warranty. If you buy new you get a longer warranty but you pay much more. If you buy B/C grade with shorter warranty you most likely can buy 2 or 3 replacements still if need and still be saving money from new.
Different grades of chromebooks
