Cheap Laptops Are Cheap

Sometimes I don’t understand what the fuck The Verge is thinking. They’ve done “a cheap laptop showdown” between a Chromebook and Windows laptop.
The cons for the Toshiba Chromebook include:
Feels flimsy in your hands
Can’t run large programs like Photoshop
Limited number of offline-ready apps
We’re talking about a $400 shit-top. How are these cons surprising?
It’s like test-driving a crappy Kia and saying it can’t ford 3-foot high rivers or maneuver snow trails.
Regardless, the Chromebook got a 7.5 score. Makes total sense.
