Best Chromebook laptops

Whether you're working, studying, or simply surfing the web, you need a laptop that ticks all your boxes.

Why buy a Chromebook laptop?

These laptops have taken the computer market by storm over the past few years. Not only are they thinner and lighter than regular laptops so you can carry them around with ease, they’re lighter on your wallet too – usually priced several hundred pounds cheaper than regular laptops.

Rather than running on Windows or macOS, Chromebooks run on Linux-based Chrome OS, designed to be used with an internet connection. Chromebooks are perfect for your work and study needs for tasks like word-processing, emails, presentations, web browsing and streaming, with applications and documents stored in the cloud rather than on the device.

Simply connect to WiFi or combine your Chromeboook with one of our Mobile Broadband packages, and you’ll be up and running in no time.
