The gap between Chromebooks and regular notebooks is starting to narrow from both sides. Many laptop users are now utilizing their portable desktops for tasks that could easily be accomplished on a Chromebook. At the same time, Chrome OS, with a bit of help from Android as well as CrossOver, is beginning to support more software beyond web apps. With the new Google Pixelbook, Chromebooks are also catching up in hardware features, not to mention price. Next year, we might even see even more progress on that front, with Samsung now believed to be making a 2-in-1 detachable Chromebook tablet/laptop hybrid.
