Nice little guide but it is all pictures
Chromebooks – low-priced, Wi-Fi-dependent, long-lasting laptops that run on Chrome OS – make more sense than ever. They lend themselves to both student and professional use and offer easy access to cloud-based media and documents. Here's a close comparison of our top picks.

Nice comparison!
I own Acer R11, so quick review comments:
R11 has an option with 4GB of RAM (not only 2GB) and is available with 16GB disk (not only 32GB).

Had to share this.  It's very comprehensive.
 
We've written plenty about Chromebooks at MakeUseOf, and by following their progression it's easy to tell how much these devices have evolved. From the humble Chrome browser shell to today's full-featured OS that allows you to do quite a bit, the Chromebook is a serious contender in the laptop-lite world. However, how does it stack up…

I've always been a Windows guy, at least as long as I've been working for MakeUseOf. Windows 95, Windows ME, XP, Windows 7… like many of you I've adopted, studied the OS, adapted, and eventually learned to love each of them for different reasons. Are you curious to know why as of today, I'm a Chromebook…

Story
Tagline
We are all about Chromebooks and how to make them work for you! If you have a particular question please see the about page.
Introduction
What is the Chromebook Guru program?
It is a limited program where Google chose a few people that are active and helpful within the Chromebook community to help promote Chrome OS.

Where is a good place to ask questions about Chrome OS & Chromebooks?
We have a FaqMe.com site set up or you can head over to Chromebook Central.

What can do the Chromebook Gurus do for you?
The Gurus are users just like you.  We aren't Google employees.  We come from all over with various backgrounds.  So, what we can do for you is tell you out experiences with Chromebooks and Chrome OS, provide tips and tricks we've learned from using the devices and apps, and help track down answers to problems you may have with your Chromebook.

Note: Notify on the page doesn't work at the moment.  Please use the above methods to contact us or e-mail the Gurus below.
