Question I have a Lenovo tablet which I use for streaming, banking, shopping and emails. The problem is that it is forcing me to use Microsoft Edge as a browser and my preference is Google. I am thinking of buying a laptop with a decent screen for viewing streaming services and would appreciate advice on Google-based laptops. My budget is €400 to €600. — Bernadette Burke

Answer
I can give you a recommendation for a Google-based laptop (known as a Chromebook) all right. But first, I must express some curiosity that your tablet is ‘forcing’ you to use Microsoft’s Edge browser. Your tablet, if I understand you correctly, is an Android device. As such, you simply download the Google Chrome browser app from the Play (app) Store on the device and use that without any further hassle.
