Chromebooks have been around for a while now. For many users, a Chromebook repair may be necessary. The big issue is if paying Chromebook repair costs are worth it. It may be cheaper to buy a new Chromebook than repair an old one. You can buy must Chromebooks for between $200-300 a computer. A repair for something simple may cost atleast $100, mainly in labor. Thus, depending on the repair, it may make sense to buy a new computer.
Repair vs. Buy a New Chromebook
The initial cost of a Chromebook is generally far less expensive that traditional computers. (But the greatest cost savings of Chromebooks are in the areas of implementation, support and maintenance.) Chromebooks are generally less expensive in part due to manufacturing decisions such as (in some models) making the RAM an integral part of the mainboard; While this reduces cost, integrating discrete parts makes local repair of a Chromebook less feasible. While it might make financial sense to spend $300 to repair a $1,500 legacy computer, spending $300 to repair a $199 Acer C720 would be financially indefensible.
