The octa core MediaTek MT8183 CPU works at a clock speed of 2.0GHz (4 x A73 & 4 x A53) and offers relatively high performance for a Chrome system and the current average CPU Passmark benchmark score is 1741. You can perform your daily tasks, which will mostly be online on Chrome browser or use the offline Google apps for work and entertainment and play pretty much all the Chrome games that are not as demanding as the Windows games anyway. Chrome OS has a simple, user-friendly interface, works fast overall and updates itself automatically in the background (security and software) every 6 weeks without you needing to do anything.
This Chrome system is ready for Google Meeting, Zoom, Online Class and Webex. The high-bandwidth soldered 4GB LPDDR4X RAM at 2400MHz may not seem like much but works better on a Chrome and you can multitask efficiently and run different apps, browsers or games without experiencing significant lagging or freezing. 64GB eMMC flash storage is again a small amount but Chrome OS takes up only 7GB of space and the rest should be yours to use. And the eMMC speed is faster than HDD and slower than SSD but faster than even SSD for small file storage. You can use external storage or Cloud to have access to your files whenever you have internet access.
14-inch Full HD touchscreen 300nits anti-glare LED-backlit display has the 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, good contrast and vibrant colors and IPS panel with the 178-degree viewing angles both vertically and horizontally.

The sound quality is acceptable with the HD Audio and top facing dual stereo speakers.
