If you are looking to save money, the ASUS Vivobook Go 12 is often significantly less expensive and offers a more compact design with an 11.6-inch display, making it easier to carry around. However, due to its smaller size, it has a lower screen resolution than the Packard Bell Cloudbook 14", which boasts a larger 14.1-inch screen with a higher resolution, providing a better viewing experience for media and multitasking. Both laptops have similar performance capabilities since they are equipped with the same processor and amount of memory, but with the Cloudbook, you get double the storage space. Keep in mind that the ASUS is lighter by a small margin, which adds to its portability. If budget is your top concern and you prioritize portability over screen size, the ASUS could be the suitable choice, whereas if you prefer a larger screen and more storage space for various activities, and don't mind spending more, the Packard Bell Cloudbook may be the better fit.
