why would you buy a chromebook?I've found the much easier solution for people who are not technical or in the field is to but a Chromebook. Inexpensive, and will provide the experience you want for your little side.
There are many options, and I currently have an ASUS Flip C434 (~$500) on the way to evaluate. There are much more inexpensive models available. I would love a Pixelbook but can't beat to pay the price tag. If anyone is interested or would like some technical advise please send me a message.
There are also great selections of refurbished laptops that would be great for this use if price is a factor ($200-300). If you would like some help, please reach out here or in Twitter. It would be my pleasure to help you out!
