What is a Chromebook
A Chromebook is known as a thin client, which means all of the software it accesses is from a network or the internet. This makes the Chromebook computer work without using too much processing power. This is why Chromebook computers were much cheaper than traditional computers when they were first launched.
You can now get Chromebooks that cost more than traditional based computers. This is because Chromebooks have become very successful, and people are now willing to pay more for a Chromebook that has much better processing power. This makes the latest Chromebooks extremely fast, and they are capable of a lot more than the first Chromebooks launched back in 2011.
The Chromebook still offers great value, and one of the reasons why they have become so popular is because they are much easier to use. This is why Chromebooks have become very popular in education and with the older generation.
A computer that is easy to use
Before the launch of tablets you had very few options if you wanted to use the internet. Most people would either use a computer using Microsoft Windows or Apple. There were other operating systems, but these were the most popular choices.
However, people soon realised tablets offered a way to access the internet from an easy to use operating system. This caused a lot of people to move away from more traditional based computers, as they were impressed with the ease a tablet provided for surfing the internet.
Microsoft and other operating systems did not have much competition, so they never needed to consider whether the operating system was accessible to all. This meant the older generation who were not tech savvy had to get to grips with using a computer using Microsoft Windows. This put a lot of people off using computers because they found them too difficult to understand.
The Chromebook was launched
Tablets were great in getting people who were not technically minded in using a device to access the internet. However, a tablet does have its limitations and not having a keyboard can make doing certain tasks much harder.
This is why the Chromebook was launched at a perfect time, as people got used to being able to access the internet with ease. However, they were also aware tablets had their limitations, but did not want to go back to a computer using Microsoft Windows.
The Chromebook computer provides everything you get with a tablet, and more, and a Chromebook computer is very similar to a traditional based computer. A Chromebook looks just like any other laptop. The main difference is the operating system, which makes a Chromebook extremely easy to use.
The Chromebook does not install programs onto your computer
The Chromebook does not install any programs onto the computer itself, and all of the work you do on a Chromebook will be done from an internet web address using an internet browser. The apps available for the Chromebook have come a long way since they were first launched, and the Chromebook is now capable of doing most tasks.
The Chromebook is ideal for education and the older generation
One of the main reasons why the Chromebook has become so successful is because it’s easy to use. Technology should be accessible to everyone, and the internet should definitely be accessible to everyone. The Chromebook allows people who have little technical ability the possibility of accessing the internet.
Chromebooks are extremely safe to use
One of the concerns people have when using a traditional based computer is whether they are safe. The internet is full of viruses and it’s easy for your computer to get a virus without you knowing. This can make using a traditional based computer hard work, and unless you’re technically capable you’ll most likely struggle if your computer gets a virus.
The Chromebook does not get viruses, and this is because you don’t install programs onto a Chromebook. This makes using a Chromebook extremely safe, as it’s the only computer that does not get viruses.
You can do much more than just surf the internet
The Chromebook is great for surfing the internet, but they are capable of much more than this. The apps now available for the Chromebook means you can write your latest essay, number crunch on a spreadsheet, and even create and edit graphics.
The only limitations you’ll find with a Chromebook is when it comes to tasks that work much better when working on a program directly installed on your computer. For example, you shouldn’t choose a Chromebook if you want to do serious video editing, music production or looking to play the latest computer games.
