I have the 2nd Samsung Chromebook and really like it - I got my second the first 2014 Toshiba Chromebook 2 this last Spring and find it is quite a bit zippier with the faster processor and 4GB of RAM. Unlike a Windows box 2GB of RAM and a Celeron processor give you quite a zippy speedy device. For a $300 budget I would lean towards the new 2015 Toshiba Chromebook, confusingly still called the Toshiba Chromebook 2 http://us.toshiba.co...tops/chromebookFor a budget of $150 look at the Acer 11.6 or Acer 13 these are both going to be 2GB RAM and Celeron processor most will not have HD screens at this price point. The Toshiba CB 2 at the $250 and up has a 1080P screen really nice. The Lenovo base system reviews out well too. . . .you are right lots of choices but currently Google keeps making them faster so my first Chromebook from 2013 is faster than the day I bought it and my 9 year old uses that model at his school as well, he mostly uses it for youtube videos at home but it's simple to use.
Just pulled this Asus from GroupOn it is pretty good for just a bit over the $150 budget https://www.groupon....-4g16gb-c300ma

Differences My Toshiba Chromebook2 has an Nvidia processor for the primary chip the new one has a choice between a Celeron and a Haswell Intel processor depending on price point - Really just a budget and ascetics choice. For the $250 and up you can get a rugged education quality cb from Dell as well that has some shock resistance built in even w/o a cover/case. Acer 740 is that model.
