I recently bought the Lenovo Flex 5 for my daughter as as Christmas present, overkill for her, it will primarily be an education tool (she's only 8). She's currently getting tutoring and I have purchased education software to help with this. A Chromebook will be perfect for her. But one thing I believe is important is to reward hard work with play, and her favourite game is Roblox.
Being Intel powered I am unsure if it can play it? It's browser-based so maybe? I've never owned a Chromebook and wouldn't have any idea. I just know Google Play won't be available in this version.
Would I need an ARM powered Chromebook?
The things I liked about the Flex 5 is:
- Build quality
- Touch screen / ability to flip around into a tablet (for me I wouldn't care, but for my daughter this is needed)
- 13.3" screen, I don't want smaller screens (that's a no to Lenovo Duet)
Does such exist around the $500 budget? The best I could find is the Acer R13 but it's looking rather long in the tooth? Do I even need an ARM cpu, will this Intel Chromebook still be able to load things like Roblox without too much difficulty?
Thanks in advance.
