THE Chromebook they are not like all other computers. The clarification comes directly from Google which explains, on the presentation page of the laptops with the operating system on board ChromeOSthat these devices are unique in that they represent a different option than operating systems Windows or MacOS. The necessary premise, to use these computers to their full potential, is that they are connected to the internet.

In order for a laptop to be sold under the name of “Chromebook“must have the ChromeOS operating system and a series of technical specifications established by Google, such as a security chip integrated that protects users’ vital data and a slightly different keyboard from that of Windows PCs. Then it must of course be a “book“, ie a computer small and light like a notebook. These computers are usually not particularly powerful but thanks to Google’s operating system, which is very light and does not take up a lot of memory, they offer superior performance to laptops with Windows. Furthermore, thanks to a technical data sheet that is not of the highest level, these laptops are also inexpensive.

Chromebook and Google suites

The principle on which the Chromebook is based is that the user does not need a lot of memory space because everything they need is available. in the cloud, i.e. deposited on Google servers or other online platforms. For example, to log into the operating system ChromeOS you must have a Google profile.

From this starting point you can then access a series of services available on Google Drive (in the cloud) like the Google Photo image storage service and all productivity apps Google Workspace.

However, it is possible to use these machines too without internet connectionalbeit with some limitations: the Chromebook itself will then synchronize the online versions of the files with the offline ones saved on the internal memory.

Finally, for some years now, it has been possible to install many (but not all) of Chromebooks app for android further increasing the possibilities of these laptops.

How much do Chromebooks cost
