Anyone familiar with a computer will be right at home with a Chromebook, and for kiddies learning their computing ropes for the first time, this is a great place to start.
Chrome OS is the speedy, simple and secure operating system from Google that powers every Chromebook. It’s a cloud-based OS, so the Chromebook itself doesn’t have the hardware bloat of a traditional laptop. A Chromebook is therefore a simpler device to meet your everyday computing needs. You can also find touchscreen-enabled Chromebooks, and there are plenty of form factors to choose from – all built on the premise of simple set-up and on-the-go productivity.
Chromebooks are great for students because they easily slip into a school bag or backpack without adding a lot of weight, they tend to have at least all school-day battery life, and they’re ready to use in about the time it takes to crack open a notebook and prep a pen.
You set up a Chromebook with a Google account. On log in you’ll find your Google Drive files and preferences for the Chromebook. An extensive range of apps are available – from note-taking to presentation-making and everything in between – and all manner of school assignments are covered.
