What is a Chromebook?

In a sense, your Chromebook is another breed of a laptop. The major difference between your Chromebook and other laptops is its Google Chrome operating system (OS). Your machine is designed to run the Google Chrome OS instead of Microsoft Windows or the Mac OS. Another difference which distinguishes your Chromebook from other laptops, is that its applications and documents are stored in the cloud rather than a slow internal hard drive.

Accessing your applications and documents is easier and quicker. You can also access your apps and documents from multiple devices across various platforms. With virus protection built-in, multiple layers of security, and automatic updates, your Chromebook keeps your documents and applications safe from viruses, malware, and other possible security issues.
