If your computing needs are relatively light, a Chromebook might be just the thing you need. We take a closer look at these systems to help you see if this should be your next computer!
Today, we're talking the Google Chromebook! From the specs, to the main usage of the cloud, the browser-based world and even the incentives for buying, like 100GB of free storage for two years! Is it right for you? Hear what Cali has to say and decide for yourself!
The Samsung Series Three Chromebook has been a top seller on Amazon ever since it was introduced in October 2012 and it's easy to see why. For $250, you get a system that's great for a lot of people's needs.
A Chromebook will give you 6.5 hours of battery life, a boot time of 10 seconds, 16GB of SSD storage and 2 GB of RAM, running on a 1.75Ghz ARM processor.
Chromebooks are designed to be cloud-based computers, running things like Google apps and Gmail. If you need heavier-duty apps, or like to download lots of things like Skype, a Chromebook is likely not for you.
If you know how to use a web browser, you know how to use a Chromebook. Just fire up the browser and you're good to go.
Google's throwing in 100 GB of free online storage for two years. And for road warriors, Chromebooks also come with 12 free sessions of GoGo inflight wireless Internet. But you have to use the free sessions ON your Chromebook. No switching devices
