While you probably can’t play full fledged games like Battlefield, Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, Diablo, and etc. on Chromebooks, they are still pretty good devices that are value for money. They are good enough for students who are simply looking for a computer to take with them to classes or to type up assignments, or for the business user who just needs basic functionality while on the go.
This is why it isn’t all too surprising to discover that Chromebooks have made up the top 3 Amazon laptop sales. According to Amazon’s listing, the top selling laptop is the Acer C720 Chromebook, followed by the ASUS Chromebook C300 in second place, and HP’s Chromebook 11 coming in third place.
This is based on sales starting from the 1st of November until the 19th of December 2014, so safe to say that many users were looking to buy Chromebooks during that time period, either for themselves or to gift them as a Christmas present to their friends/family members. Google’s Chromecast also managed to be the second best selling item on Amazon.
The device placed second only behind the Amazon Fire TV stick. Will Chromebooks continue to dominate Amazon’s laptop sales charts? We guess we will have to wait and see if this carries over to 2015, but in the meantime are you surprised?
