[Poll] Chromebook or Nexus Tablet?

Should you buy a new Chromebook or the Nexus 7 tablet. Such a comparison makes sense because the price of both devices are pretty close. At the same time, there is a lot of difference in what you can do with these gadgets.

So, will you prefer a Nexus 7 or a Chromebook?

A post on  Google Plus by Mike Crumpler inspired me to write this post and put up a poll.

A tablet is for content consumption (mostly) and a Chromebook will help in content creation and content consumption. But the content consumption experience may not be similar to what a tablet can give you. I liked Mike’s closing statement on that post.

  1. I own both a Nexus 7 and a Cr-48 Chromebook and though I love both and am rooting for Chrome OS to succeed in the long run, I’ve got to say the Nexus 7 is just more interesting and useful.

    I also think the newness factor is a big one here. Android 4.1 feels familiar but at the same time feels like something you haven’t used or tried before, while Chrome OS feels like a cleaned up version of what we’ve all already been using for years.

    I think when Android and Chrome OS both finally converge into one product, Google should lean more to Android on the user interface side of things just for the appeal alone (though I’d say that’s a given since Chrome OS has no mobile interface).

  2. I think one thing to consider is whether you want to use the device with multiple family members or as a single user. Android phones and tablets are definitely geared more towards a single user (unless you don’t mind sharing your email, calendar, docs, etc.)

    Chromebooks are much more compartmentalized between the user accounts.

  3. Your poll is defective in my case, since for that kind of money I’m doing both. They’re complementary devices and each add value.
