It sounds silly, but you can actually run Chrome with a half dozen tabs and juggle multiple apps without Windows 10 having a meltdown. Of course, you don't get very powerful graphics so gaming of any kind beyond casual games like Solitaire is out of the question. But, oh thank god, regular laptop stuff works well!
The $699 version is the sweet spot with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. The $899 Laptop Go doubles the storage to 256GB, but I think that's way too expensive. If you need more storage, you can easily increase it with an external memory card (with an adapter, of course, since there's no built-in slot) or a hard drive. High-capacity external storage is dirt cheap these days.
