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, built-in cloud storage, and the most popular Google products for education 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).

 

Learn and work, right out of the box

Chromebooks come with apps for everyday tasks in and out of the classroom, and there are thousands more educational apps from the Chrome Web Store.


Apps are the programs that you use on a Chromebook to do things like create documents, edit slides, and develop websites. 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 students and teachers can save and access their stuff safely online and won't need to back up their files manually. No more excuses of lost files or papers.

Benefits of the cloud

Unlike real clouds, cloud storage is safe and secure. It's a lot like storing money in a bank - only the assigned user (student, teacher, etc.) can access their data (with the right password), and if they like, they can access their data from anywhere in the world, or even other devices like their laptop or phone. All the files are safe even if they lose or damage their device.

You're in control of the 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. No more wasted class time providing tech support.

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 also automatically download updates so you always get the the latest security fixes to keep you safe.

Privacy protected

When you don't want your website visits or downloads saved in your browsing and download histories, you can browse in incognito mode. For ultimate privacy, choose Guest Mode on the login screen - when you exit your session, all of your browsing information and downloads from the session will be deleted. Browsing incognito and Guest Mode can be disabled by the administrator.

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.


Chromebooks avoid the bloat of traditional software and other legacy computer issues, so that your computer stays fast (and gets faster) over time.

Always getting better

Chromebooks update themselves automatically, for free, so you always get the latest software and security updates. 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 without thinking about it. You can expect regular updates and system improvements every couple of months.

Keeps you connected

Chromebooks offer features like 3G, free Gogo Inflight passes and offline apps for the rare times when you’re disconnected from the web.

3G connectivity

You can connect on the go with 3G (optional) even when there are no local Wi-Fi connections. In the US, you get 100 MB of internet per month, for free, from Verizon Wireless.

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 students and teachers stay productive during the rare times they are disconnected from the web.
