In 2011 Google launched its laptop based on the Chrome operating system and since then it has been receiving a lot of attention as well as criticism. Not all criticism is true such as these laptops are a failure without internet connection; this article mainly focuses on the advantages of a Chromebook to help you decide the best computer for you.
Chromebooks are an excellent choice because they are fast and great laptops for large amounts of storage space along with protection and upgrades, they are also compact and sleek and easily fit in any laptop bag.
Chromebooks are fast computers and turn on instantly in around 8 seconds while wake up from sleep mode is even less, other computer takes around 40 to 60 seconds to boot making Chromebooks remarkably faster. Dual core Intel atom processor makes certain of the high speed.
Chromebooks allow a lot of mobility not just because of their low weight and sleekness but because they save all data on cloud including documents, pictures, apps and even your desired settings. This means data can be accessed anywhere you go, on any Chromebook, even if unfortunately your computer is stolen.
Chromebooks are highly secure and reliable thanks to their inbuilt security feature consisting of multiple layers of security including antivirus, sandboxing and encrypted downloads. Latest and stronger versions of viruses are not a worry with Chromebooks because each time the computer is turned on it begins to update its old security measures instantly to deal with any modern threats.
Data theft and fear of losing data is impossible with Chromebooks, unlike cheap laptops, because backups are created instantly, not on your computer but on the cloud making them accessible from anywhere with your login details, even if the Chromebook is lost or misplaced. Data does not have to be saved each time, so clicking on the floppy disk icon or pressing Ctrl+S is the least of your concerns, since backups are automatic.
4. Battery Life
Laptops battery life usually ranges from 2 to around 6 hours but Google promises Chromebooks battery to last as much as 8 hours which is quite unbelievable but of course great. This increases there mobility and makes them great for travelling, official use and presentations etc.
When new software has to be required for a laptop it has be purchased and users have to go through an extensive download process but with Chromebooks millions of applications are available for downloading such as Microsoft Office. Thousands of these apps are also available free of charge to enhance the Chromebook experience.
