2GB of RAM seems to be a bit on the low side. Nowadays most smartphones have that much RAM (and some have quite a bit more).

ETA: Macdoc beat me to it!

The concept of a Chromebook is a cheap, lightweight laptop that runs purpose built apps. It’s a focused machine for a focused purpose and one that ticks the boxes where my sons requirements are concerned.

Any recommendations?

Yes. Don't bother to ask for recommendations if you've already made up your mind.


I’m asking for recommendations on chromebooks. What’s the issue?

ETA This was not intended to be a thread about whether or not to get a Chromebook. That’s decided. My son is autistic and is in a special needs class that delivers the course using the Google suite of educational apps.
There are many flavours of Chromebooks out there. I appreciate those that have contributed positively to this thread and the original ask.
