I do web development on a Chromebook. It's a fantastic lightweight tool. I don't have any hiccups with standard web dev.

Where I have to switch to a more beefy system is when I'm working with react native or building stuff with laravel/sql servers that I want to stay local. The workaround is just to use my other laptop, which isn't a big deal.

For most use cases, my Chromebook is fantastic.

Which Chromebook do you own and which tools? I am interested to do some backend dev on a cheap laptop and this sounds interesting
