Keeping speed in mind, Chromebooks are designed in a way to give you instant access to all your data. Unlike traditional desktop computers and laptops that take nearly 20 seconds to boot, the Chromebook boots in under 8 seconds, and resumes instantly from sleep. Just flip open the lid and you’re back on the web. And Chromebooks are designed to get faster over time as updates are released.
Chromebooks run the first operating system designed from the ground up to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses. They basically use the principle of “defense in depth” to provide multiple layers of protection, including data encrypting. All your data is stored in the cloud, and there’s nothing to worry about it. You don’t even have to worry about anyone stealing your data. And in case if you lose your Chromebook, there’s no threat to your data, since it’s all in the cloud.
Chromebooks are design to stay connected to the Internet all the time. With built-in Wi-Fi, it makes life easier to get connect anytime and anywhere. This is coupled with long battery life, which enables you to be truly mobile. Chromebooks also have Google Cloud Print built in, allowing you to print to any cloud-connected printer from anywhere.
Web Apps and Synchronization
Chromebooks have over millions of web apps, from games to spreadsheets to photo editors. All thanks to the power of HTML5, most of the web apps are working on this latest standard. You can visit the Chrome Web Store to try out the latest web apps, or you can simply type in the URL in the address bar.
All your data, including apps and documents are stored in the cloud. This means that even if you login using your friend’s Chromebook, your data is automatically synced, and you can continue with your work.
Unlike traditional PCs, which requite to be manually updated, Chromebooks are designed to automatically update all by itself. All of your web apps and games will stay up-to-date, and you will also get the latest updates on the operating system.
