Chromebook and ultraportable computers are becoming more reliable and more versatile than ever before. The sleek and stylish exteriors are nearly the standard these days, but it can sometimes be deceiving. Even after reviewing a computer’s specifications, the speed of actual web browsing can be off.
One of the ways you can avoid purchasing an under performing laptop is by running/checking speed tests to see if the web browsing speed is where you want it. With Google Octane, the result is a fast, simple, and clear metric that you can use to compare with other laptops, especially Chromebooks.
