It's no surprise that Chromebooks are fast becoming the laptop of choice for students and families. With the power to blitz homework and study, Chromebooks come in a schoolbag-friendly design plus bring all the smart features and functions needed for a glitch-free workday. Throw in the best accessories for high-octane performance and a budget-friendly price tag, and you’ve got an A-grade buy for study, work and play!
Not entirely sure what a Chromebook actually is? Let’s get you up to speed! A Chromebook is simply a laptop that uses Google’s Chrome OS operating system. That means the majority of its functions and uses are centred around the Chrome web-based browser (think Gmail, Google Docs and Google Drive).
“Essentially, a Chromebook is a laptop with everything you love about Google – cloud computing, smarts and automatic updates – conveniently built in!” says Jason Tavoletti, The Good Guys Buyer – Tech.
Here are 10 great reasons why a Lenovo Chromebook should be top of your new tech list.
Setting up your new Lenovo Chromebook takes less time than it would a first-grader to find their shoes! Just power up, connect to a Wi-Fi network, log in to your Google Account and go!
The user-friendly perks continue once you’re up and running. With Chromebook, the updates you make to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides within Google Drive are automatically saved to the cloud. That means no more lost work if your cuppa takes a spill!
Swipe, tap and scroll the way that you want! Many Chromebooks, like the Lenovo Duet Chromebook range, sport touchscreen displays or 2-in-1 convertibility. These are ideal for keeping preschoolers and primary students engaged with any number of educational apps available for download from the Google Play Store.
Positioned conveniently on your Chromebook laptop’s keyboard, this one button helps you find what you need fast! Just one tap and you can launch files, find your most used apps, open email drafts, research answers online, and plenty more.
Viruses, spyware, malware – not on your Chromebook! Built-in antivirus protection means you don’t need to buy or install any extra software to keep your device secure.
Google’s Family Link app offers another layer of security for families. Use it to set digital ground rules for children using Chromebooks, such as screen-time limits.
Ready when you are, Chromebooks boot up in as little as eight seconds! And with automatic updates, you get the latest, fastest software without being interrupted.
You can also rest assured that your Chromebook will keep on keeping on while you’re out and about. With their minimalist design and durability, the best Chromebooks will let you work and play for up to 12 hours on a single charge – perfect for seeing your kids through an entire school day.
No Wi-Fi? No problem. Recent documents, spreadsheets, presentations and emails are all available with offline access. Just pre-download content and enable offline access for documents, presentations and emails to view offline later.
You're out of Wi-Fi range but need to get online? Chromebooks have an Instant Tethering setting which connects to your Android phone’s Wi-Fi hotspot automatically. Just as clever, Instant Tethering will automatically disconnect after 10 minutes of no activity to save you power and data.
Debating the perks of Chromebook vs laptop? Pondering whether you can get by without your trusty Microsoft Word? A Chromebook gives you the best of both operating systems because it can work with Microsoft Office, too. Whether it’s Word, Excel or PowerPoint, you can easily find and use the apps on the web.
Be a multitasking marvel. With a Chromebook, you can enjoy picture-in-picture viewing by downloading certain video apps. For students, that means having their online video lecture open in the corner of the screen while they take notes in a document at the same time.
Studying all hours? With a Chromebook, you don't need to stress about eye strain – thanks to a clever Night Light setting that automatically adjusts for optimum screen brightness. Need laser focus to meet a deadline? Switch to Do Not Disturb mode and your computer will silence all incoming notifications.
Wondering if all that fantastic functionality comes at a steep price? The answer is no! “Smart features like cloud storage make Chromebooks some of the best value Back to School tech around because you don’t need to buy extras, like external hard drives and software,” says Jason Tavoletti, The Good Guys Buyer – Tech.
Ready to add a Chromebook to your family? Head in-store or online for all the best advice on tech fit for work, study and play!
