I have 2 great i7 PCs but once in a while I would like to do some web browsing on my lanai.

Looked at an hp and acer chrome book, the acer screen was dull and while there was good brightness on the hp, I would like more contrast.

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive, 14" Chrome with a vivid screen.

How are they for web browsing ?

Amazon has an white hp for $150, renewed. Any comments ?
HP Chromebook 14 14-ca051wm

You are quite unlikely to find any laptop screen (regardless of the hardware or OS) that performs well under bright light, whether indirect (where you can at least see something) or direct (where, well, good luck to you).

These devices were never intended for outdoor use and will only be reasonably visible in a well-shaded outdoor location.

Chromebooks are no different than any other hardware, and many share virtually all of their component parts with Windows based netbooks.

You've got to look on a machine by machine basis. You can't broad-brush Chromebooks as if there is some global commonality about them other than having Chrome OS.
