Introduced back in June 2011 by Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), the Chromebook is basically a personal computer/ a notebook that runs the Chrome OS as its main operating system. This is a handy, space-effective and feature-rich notebook, and what makes it stand out from the rest is that you can use it for Internet-based applications rather than for applications that are installed on the notebook itself. Basically, everything from documents to software is stored on cloud storage systems, meaning that nothing resides on the computer, and you will need an Internet connection to be able to access these files.
Chromebooks were actually developed not only by Google, but also by Lenovo as well as by Acer, and by Samsung – Google has entered the market last year and it is believed that the Google Chromebooks will have a tremendous success in 2014. These notebooks are typically sold online, and the main difference between the Chromebooks designed by Acer or Samsung and the ones manufactured by Google is that the latter are high end personal computers.
