I hate cheap computers. Poor user experience and then they break.
I am not a fan of HP either; they have improved though.
Here is a quality, entry level chromebook:Acer Chromebook
I have given this Chromebook as a gift; a good computer.
There are at least 4 Chromies in our house, maybe more.
I am using a Pixelbook Go right now. Pricy, but a great notebook.
Stick with Asus, Acer or Google and you will get quality.
