What are the advantages of Chromebook?

 

There are several perks of using a computer that runs Chrome OS. Having a light operating system means that updates are quick to install, and the computer boots up in seconds. It also means that the computer is secure from viruses and other forms of malware. When using Chromebooks, it’s easy to share devices as you sync with your Google account and all your information comes with you. This means teachers don’t need to worry about software being installed on the computer, or which Chromebook a student is using.
