Should You Buy Nexian Chromebook?

The Nexian Chromebook is a cheap ChromeOS device, don’t imagine it to be a featured device. It is an entry-level Chromebook having a less powerful processor and other specifications. It would be best for regular web browsing, watching online or offline videos etc., but definitely not for high-end gaming etc. The plus points of Nexian Chromebook are longer battery life, easy-to-use Chrome operating system which synchronizes your data across Chrome browser installations on other operating systems.

If you are comfortable with using web apps and hardly need Windows apps like MS Office, Chromebooks are great option for you. Looking for a basic and “cheap” laptop with long battery life? Go for Nexian Air Chromebook.

For Windows lovers, I would recommend Asus EeeBook X205TA Notebook – which has 11.6” screen,  4th Gen Atom Quad Core processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC storage and Windows 8.1. The EeeBook X205TA is available on Flipkart at the price of Rs 14,999 only. With this price and such specifications, the EeeBook is definitely better than the Nexian and XOLO chromebooks.
