Chromebook or Tablet?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
You see, I am having a bit difficult time choosing between a Chromebook or a tablet.

What I am using for? It's not really me using it but more like my mom using it.
What does she use? She probably watch some videos on websites like YouTube, play Mahjong/Solitaire and etc.
Budget? I'll say probably under 300 bucks. Nothing too fancy.

I don't see a lot of threads relating about Chromebook and Tablets, so I thought it'll be nice to discuss about it.

What do you guys think? Chromebook or Tablets?

If you want to get any kind of serious stuff or work done on it get the chromebook.

If you just want something for media consumption get a tablet.
