What is the best Google Chromebook to buy?

Looking for a Christmas gift.  They want a Chromebook that also can function as a tablet and be a quality “laptop”. Any information or guidance is appreciated.

    be aware, a Chromebook is not a "computer" in the traditional sense. you cannot install games, it has no DVD drive, you can't save files to it, or use a scanner or connect a printer without being a network printer.

    Chromebooks are designed for web browsing and not much else. that is why they are so cheap. you can only use apps that are for Chromebooks specifically, and it does not typically have a touchscreen, or disconnect from the keyboard like a tablet.

    you may want to look at the Lenovo "Yoga" series 2-in-1 laptops.
