Overview

Google’s ChromeBook has been around for a couple of years now, but it has mostly taken a backseat to the company’s stable of Android devices. With the recent release of the next generation of ChromeBooks, Google is finally giving this new computing platform the attention it deserves. No longer are people forced to choose between Windows and Mac – and if Google has anything to say about it, the ChromeBook platform will grow by leaps and bounds in the years to come.

The concept behind these devices is both simple and revolutionary. Since most of our computer use takes place within a browser, why not eliminate the need for standalone programs altogether? The ChromeBook is a not only a new series of devices, but a new computing paradigm. Automatically updated and free from viruses and malware, it’s the most secure operating system available today. By harnessing the power of the Internet, the ChromeBook can do pretty much anything that more expensive PCs are capable of. It’s everything you need, and none of what you don’t.

Over the course of this guide, we’ll introduce you to the concepts that make the ChromeBook a unique solution for you and your family. Whether you’re bogged down with endless term papers or just browsing eBay for a bargain, we’ll show you the ins and outs of the system, giving you the knowledge you need to make the ChromeBook a big part of your digital life.
