HP Chromebook

HPChromebookI fix computers every now again.  Mostly from people I work with.  One lady said she was having trouble with her laptop and couldn’t get Facebook to work.  So said, “I’ll take a look at it”.  She hands me the the bag with laptop, open it up and see the Google Chrome logo on the cover.  It turns out to be a HP Chromebook.  Have heard about about these Chromebooks but never seen one in person.  What they are is like your standard laptop but run on the Google’s Chrome operating system.  It designed to work while online.  Every thing pretty much runs thought the web browser.  So if you have no internet access it pretty much useless.  Did find out there are some apps you can run offline.  It does work great.  Very fast and smooth.  Most of the Chromebooks run around the $300 price point and up.  Think they are for people who only do web stuff or a it can be a good starter laptop for kids.
