Trying to come up with a real reason to get one. Nope, can’t really think of one at this time. Also, Google refuses to offer me browser features that I want, so my full time “go to” browser is the wonderful Slimjet browser. And I highly doubt that Slimjet can be installed on a Chromebook ? Or can it.
You could install Slimjet on a Chromebook, but you’d have to first install Windows or proper Linux.
The hardware should be powerful enough for video editing, at least on the Intel Chromebooks. I mean, we’ve been doing non-linear video editing for how many decades now? There are a couple of native video editing apps, or you could install something else by adding a secondary OS.
But the Chromebook is designed around using Google apps for everything, so if that’s not your preference, it’s like buying engine mods for your Prius. You should just get a different car.
