About a year ago I wrote about the Chromebook laptop computers that run Google’s cloud-based Chrome operating system instead of Windows or Macintosh or Linux. these low-priced laptop computers have tiny hard drives as they store most all data and applications in the cloud. As long as the user has an Internet connection, these computers can perform nearly all the same functions as their more expensive cousins.Chromebook computers never get viruses and are very, very simple to use, even for computer novices. In fact, they have been called “laptops for the AARP generation” because of their simplicity of use. They are great for use by anyone who is nearly computer illiterate. Chromebook computers are popular with senior citizens, grammar school children, and anyone else who has never learned the intricacies of computers.
