What is the major difference between Chromebooks and laptops?
- Price: Chromebooks are generally more affordable than a laptop because of its operating system - the Chrome OS is free of charge.
- Performance: The majority of Chromebooks are equipped with power efficient processors and cloud-focused storage so they are not built to run specialized software or hardware intensive tasks, such as gaming or video editing. Most Chromebooks will allow you to expend the storage via memory cards or external drives.
- Display: Chromebooks usually have smaller displays, ranging from 11 inch to 14 inch, while laptops range from 14 inch and up.
- Maintenance: Chromebooks use a lightweight operating system and you download apps from Google Play Store, making maintenance more streamlined for a user.
Who uses Chromebooks and why?
- Chromebooks are used vastly in the education market and they are simple to use for students, especially younger students.
- Chromebooks perfectly handle the basic tasks such as homework, web-browsing and essay preparation.
- The ultra-portability is ideal for students to carry around from rooms to rooms.
- With most of the document and data stored in the cloud, if your Chromebook was damaged, simply log into your account on another Chromebook and continue your work.
