Kids have used them for the past 5 years for school. Their first one was a Lenovo. Not the most reliable machine.
They have a google chrome book the past 18 months or do. Better reliability. The other one had keyboard issues and the charger failed at some point. WiFi transmitter on the google device is way better. Almost all of their classwork is google based as well. So that really helped
My wife has a Surface Pro. I like it too. Higher entry point but am more proficient on Microsoft products than google. They are similar but there is a learning curve. Ditto for the family AirMac on the product learning curve.
