A Chromebook is a laptop of a different breed. Instead of Windows 10 or macOS, Chromebooks run Google's Chrome OS. These machines are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and documents living in the cloud.

Good read here: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-a-chromebook-differs-from-a-laptop/

I would give some consideration to a Chromebook as an addition to a respectable Windows computer, laptop or desktop. Have no plans in purchasing one though. I'm sure there will be more feedback.
