Hi. My old dudes computer is getting funky. He is debating going with a laptop or a chrome book. Is there reason to go with either??? I know the chrome book is a lot less costly. Thanks for the help.... Ed

Chromebook is cheaper, but much slower, and has almost no hard-drive space. As it's a Google product, they expect all documents, photos, files, etc., to be in the Google cloud and their apps... which means you can't do anything with it unless you're online. I suggest going to About Face Computers in TF and ask them for a modestly priced PC laptop.

Short answer: Yes. :-) Longer answer: What does he plan to use it for? By "laptop" I assume you mean laptop running Microsoft Windows operating system (there are also laptops running Mac OS -- they are pricier, but some people love them); Chromebooks run Google's Chrome OS. This link may be helpful:
