I have an older Chromebook and and Android tablet. I am looking to slim down to using just one device. The primary use for it would be college stuff, and originally just the Chromebook was enough. However, typically, I try to rent my textbooks on Google Play or Amazon Kindle when I can. Several books, though, were only compatible with the "tablet" version of the Kindle or Play Books apps (my phone and/or Chromebook were not good enough, apparently).
