Chromebooks are ultra-portable, affordable laptops that run Google's own operating system - Chrome OS. As a low maintenance, highly manageable platform with automatic software updates and built-in virus protection, Chromebooks are ideal for basic and everyday computing tasks like surfing the web, checking email, navigating social networks and chatting online.
Central to the experience is the Chrome web browser. The Chrome OS interface is similar in feel to a traditional Windows environment, with an application menu, desktop and ability to drag windows around. Compared to Microsoft or Apple’s latest operating systems, the user interface (UI) lacks advanced features. However, the simple and stripped-down experience is a benefit for Chromebook Education Users.
Indeed, for those familiar with Android tablets and phones, the installation of apps, extensions and themes from Google's Chrome Store offers a degree of customization and versatility for Chromebook owners, including children.
And, with Chromebooks automatically checking for updates in the background, viruses and typical OS related issues are kept to a minimum. Indeed, Chromebooks represent one of the best options in terms of price, being highly portable as offering excellent battery life.
