Intro to Chromebooks
It looks and feels like a laptop, but Chromebooks are a new type of computer designed to help you get things done faster and easier. They run Chrome OS, an operating system that has multiple layers of security, built-in cloud storage, and the most popular Google products for education built-in. It’s simple and secure, and has access to the web and apps built-in so students and teachers can work and learn right out of the box.
Best of Google
Your favorite Google apps, like Search, Gmail, and Docs, are included along with access to thousands more educational apps from the Chrome Web Store. And of course, you can access to the vast educational resources of the web.
Chromebooks use the principle of “defense in depth” to provide multiple layers of protection. Every time you boot up, they do a self-check to make sure your system hasn’t been tampered with. Chromebooks also automatically download updates so you always get the the latest security fixes to keep you safe.
Easy to Manage
Centrally configure, track, and manage a school or district-wide fleet of Chrome devices via a web-based console.
Hassles not Included
Chromebooks cost less to support than traditional computers. They have an autoupdate mechanism so you always get the freshest software and security features without thinking about it. You can expect regular updates and system improvements every couple of months. Virus protection is design and built into the Chrome Operating System. You can expect malware protection updates as they are needed. Your purchase is backed by support from Cumulus Global and directly from Google, along with a one-year hardware warranty from the manufacturer.
