Launched in 2011, chromebooks gave us a different perspective on what a personal computer could do for us, working with the “cloud” chromebooks allow you to keep all your data safe in your google drive storage, allowing you to access your files and continue working on your home computer or laptop if needed.
At first chromebooks were not taking too seriously since they were a middle point between a laptop and a tablet and it was hard to decide whether to get one or the other but the benefits of a chromebook like the long lasting battery, portability and cloud storage made them a serious contender in the portable computing industry. There are also a number of mobile accessories manufactures that have created cases, keyboards, and business docks to support these chromebooks. So, it seems these are here to stay.
Nowadays chromebooks have a nice following and they keep getting better spec wise, their consumers are expanding, at first schools were the major consumer of chromebooks but now there are more average consumers on the look for a chromebook.
