This little book is perfect in almost every way,” one Amazon shopper wrote. “In general, this Chromebook is perfect for what I bought it for: work-related tasks on the web, surfing the web, using Google Docs to type up documents & write lyrics for songs, and organizing thoughts and ideas into productivity apps and jotting down tasks in my Microsoft To-Do list app. This Chromebook is lightning fast in powering up, connecting to WiFi & Bluetooth, and opening apps and browsers.”
The Chromebook Flex currently has a 4.7-star rating, with customers calling it the “perfect” choice for those working from home or taking part in virtual schooling.

Streaming video is a breeze, and I'm able to open multiple tabs without any significant lag at all.”
