More and more, Chromebooks - built around the Chrome OS, a greatly simplified operating system from Google that is extremely user-friendly - are becoming popular and likely to become mainstream in the not-too-distant future with the full integration of Android apps, which considerably expand the Chrome OS experience. Arguably, the majority of today's computer users would be well-served by Chromebooks, and furthermore would be so overjoyed with their simplicity that the idea of going back to either Windows or even the Apple OS would be out of the question. In fact, I believe that Windows and Apple OS computers are increasingly going to become niche products for professional heavy users and hardcore gamers.
Now, in all the recent offerings by main computer manufacturers, there is only one example of Chromebook in the 15.6 inches format, even though this format may very well be the most popular in the world of laptops. Unfortunately, this one exception manufactured by Acer includes at best a 1080p IPS display that is underwhelming with a maximum brightness of only 220 nits, which is indeed rather dim and somewhat mediocre.
Nothing would be more welcome than a high quality 15.6 inches Chromebook by HP with a range of possible configurations that would go from a mix of Celeron processor and 4 gigs of RAM, plus a 720p TFT display for budget-minded consumers right up to a skylake i5 quad core processor with 8 gigs of RAM, and a 1080p IPS display that would have to be at least on par with the one found in the 13.3 inch Toshiba Chromebook 2 with 300+ nits.
