One of the best Chromebook features often gets overlooked: over six years of operating system support direct from Google. That means you get all the new features that come to Chrome OS (provided your hardware allows) as well as security fixes and those tiny updates that make things just work better. That means a Chromebook you buy today will still be supported in 2024, and a Chromebook that sold new in 2016 still has four years of updates ahead of it.
It also means that buying a used Chromebook can be an awesome idea as long as you know what to look for. You’ll, of course, want to make sure everything is in working order. If you’re buying through an individual seller, have him or her fire it up and let you give it a spin.
