Chromebooks are a unique class of mobile computing devices, designed specifically for Web-based tasks. They differ from traditional laptops in a few important ways:
Chromebooks run Web-based apps, not traditional PC applications.
Chromebooks are designed to be connected to the Internet. You can create documents and spreadsheets or edit photos on a Chromebook using Google apps designed for these purposes. The Chrome operating system will not load and run traditional PC software like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. However, files created in these applications can be viewed and edited using Google apps on your Chromebook or cloud-based applications like Microsoft’s Office web apps.
You store your files in the Cloud, not on the machine.
To help make them thin and light, Chromebooks are built without large-capacity drives. So instead of storing your documents, videos, and photos on your computer, you save them to Google Drive (Google's Cloud-based storage service). Your files are password-protected and secure, and you can access them anywhere there's an Internet connection. If you know you'll want access to a file or photo offline, however, you can easily save it to the built-in solid-state drive.
HP Chromebook 11: Made with Google. For Everyone.
Everything you need in one laptop. Clever touches like an extra bright screen and a charger that also works with your Android phone are designed to keep up with the things you do every day.
For Sharing, Playing, Doing
Relax with your favorite music, write a report using Google Docs, or put the finishing touches on a family video. Your Chromebook has 6 hours of battery life, slips easily into a bag or purse, and weighs just over 2 pounds – so it’s equally comfortable at home or keeping up with the things you do everyday.*
Ready When you Are
Chromebook starts in seconds, so you can go straight to playing or working (if you have to). Unlike traditional computers, Chromebook updates itself automatically so it doesn’t slow down over time. Browse the web at lightning speed with features like Chrome Instant and the Chrome Omnibox.
With Everything Built-in
For the Best of Google
Video chats are loud and clear on digitally-tuned speakers. YouTube videos shine on the brilliant screen. And 100GB of free Google Drive storage safely stores all your stuff.** Your favorite Google apps are built-in, and there are lots of other apps available for free on the Chrome Web Store.
Your Chromebook is probably easier than any computer you’ve ever used – there’s no clutter, no waiting, and no nagging. It uses the same charger as most Android phones, starts up in seconds, and automatically stays up-to-date without interrupting you.
Plays Nicely with Others
For Picking up Where you Left off – Wherever you Go
Start writing an email on your Chromebook and finish it off from your phone. The stuff from your Chromebook (like email, files, photos, bookmarks, and apps) are easy to access on your phone, tablet, and even your old PC, so you can pick up right where you left off -- or multi-task with several devices at the same time, if you’re so inclined.
Directions to everywhere. Search for directions on your Chromebook, and find them later when you’re on the road.
Read from where you left off. Find an article on your Chromebook, and read it later from your phone.
Work anywhere. Write a document on your Chromebook, and edit it on the go.
Gives you Peace of Mind
Stays Fresh, all by Itself
Chromebooks run Chrome OS, an operating system that’s fast, simple and secure. Chromebook updates itself automatically (and for free). So you’ll have the latest and greatest version -- no need for manual downloads and upgrades.
Virus protection, multiple layers of security, and verified boot help keep you safe from viruses, malware and other computer nasties. With Google Drive built-in, your files and photos are automatically backed up, so if you lose your computer, you don’t lose all of your stuff.
