Looks like a laptop, feels like a laptop but…

Chromebooks are a new type of computer designed to help you get things done faster and easier. They run Chrome OS, an operating system that has multiple layers of security, cloud storage, and the most popular Google products built-in.

Operating what?

An operating system is the core part of your computer which helps you run programs and manage files. Examples of operating systems are Windows (which you find on PCs), OS X (which you find on Macs), Android and iOS (which you’ll find on phones and tablets).

 

Work and play, right out of the box

Chromebooks come with apps for everyday tasks, and there are thousands more from the Chrome Web Store.


Apps are the programs that you use on a Chromebook to do things like create documents, listen to music and edit photos of your puppy. No more buying and installing software - thousands of apps are free, and they stay up to date automatically.

Keeps your stuff safe

Chromebooks come with Google Drive, an online file storage service, so you can save and access your stuff safely online and won’t need to back up your files manually.

Benefits of the cloud

Unlike real clouds, cloud storage is safe and secure. It's a lot like storing money in a bank - only you can access your data (with the right password), and if you’d like, you can access your data from anywhere in the world. All your files are safe even if you lose or damage your device.

You're in control of your data

With Google Drive your data is stored in Google's highly secure data centers. The Terms of Service make clear that ‘what belongs to you stays yours.’ You own your files and control who you share them with, plain and simple.

Peace of mind included

Chromebooks are designed from the ground up with security in mind, so you’ll be safe from viruses and malware. You don't need to buy and install security software separately.

Serious security

Chromebooks use the principle of defense in depth to provide multiple layers of protection. Every time you boot up, they do a self-check to make sure your system hasn’t been tampered with. Chromebooks automatically download security updates so you'll aways have the latest security features.

Privacy protected

When you don't want your website visits or downloads saved in your browsing history, you can browse in incognito mode. For even more control, choose Guest Mode on the login screen - when you exit your session, all of your browsing information and downloads from that session will be deleted.

Starts fast, stays fast

Chromebooks boot up in less than ten seconds and don’t slow down. Traditional computers may take thirty seconds or more, and often slow down over time.

Always getting better

Chromebooks update themselves automatically, for free. You’ll never need to purchase or install upgrades manually.

Automatic updates

Chromebooks have an autoupdate mechanism so you always get the freshest software and security features. You can expect regular updates every couple of months.

Connect from 30,000 feet

Chromebooks come with 12 free sessions of Gogo Inflight Internet.

Offline apps

Apps like Google Docs and Offline Gmail help you stay productive during the rare times you are disconnected from the web.
