A comment by John:

When my previous laptop broke I didn't have a big budget so I got an Acer Chromebook for 270 Euro - I got it as a quick fix until I could get a 'proper' laptop like a Macbook, or so I thought ... almost 3 years later I still have the Chromebook, works like new, I can do pretty much everything I need in the browser but can run Android apps when needed or jump into settings and switch over fully to Linux. There are of course better options for running Linux depending on needs, your work etc. but a cheap Chromebook that can run perfectly for up to 3 years for 270 Euro showed me that not everyone needs the latest or greatest options :)
