AFAIK, Chromebooks (excluding the high-res Chromebook Pixel) are
aimed at the low-cost netbook market, so most have a small form factor
similar to netbooks.  The biggest is HP's 14-inch.

If your neighbor doesn't need something portable, how about a Chromebox
instead of a Chromebook?  Hook it up to any screen your neighbor wants to use.
