What Are Chromebooks?
If you are not familiar with Chromebooks here is a brief explanation from our online knowledgebase. “Chromebooks are lightweight computers based on Google’s Chrome OS. They include a range of productivity cloud apps for knowledge workers, such as Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and more, without the need to purchase additional software.
The lightweight, simplified IT management makes Chromebooks popular and well suited to the education market, among others.”
