To get a good idea of what a Chromebook really is you might think of it as a laptop that’s always online and has a browser as the only piece of software on it. A netbook or notebook completely build and optimized for the web, running on the Chrome operating system called Chrome OS.

The best bits of the Chromebook are the 8+ hours of battery life, an 8 second startup time and an instant-on from sleep! With this machine Google has created a new class of mobile device within the personal computing space. It’s not a laptop and not really a pure cloud device either, it’s somewhere in between. Just check out the video below to find out for yourself what an amazing machine this really is.

Since the Chrome operating system is based on the well known and popular chrome browser you can expect all of your chrome extensions and apps to work perfectly well on your Chromebook.
