9 reasons why we recommend " Google Chromebook " for business purposes

Chromebook runs on Google’s lightweight operating system, Chrome OS. Chrome OS is so lightweight that it doesn’t support running traditional locally installed business applications.
This is changing to to some degree, as several recent model Chromebooks support installed Android apps. Example models are the Acer Chromebook R 11 Convertible and the Google Chromebook Pixel.
Many developers will need to make changes to their Android apps in order to fully support Chrome OS. Even if an app is made compatible with Chrome OS, it may not be as robust as its Windows or macOS counterpart.
Chromebooks ship with under 32GB of local storage. But this is more than enough space to run multiple Chrome extensions.
Chrome OS updates are easy and fast to apply. This makes Chromebook an attractively secure choice in light of recent ransomware attacks, in which older unpatched operating systems were exploited.

1: Cost effectiveness

You'd be hard-pressed to top the price point of the Chromebook. Unless you're looking at the Pixel (which is a stunning piece of work), you'll be dropping about $179 to $300 USD for one of these devices. At the pace hardware is replaced these days, that's a welcome prospect for businesses — especially for a reliable mobile device. 
2: Seamless integration with Google Apps
More and more small businesses are migrating onto Google Apps, and they'll want devices that integrate into that platform with ease. That's the Chromebook. On no other platform will you find such perfect integration with Google Apps. And with Google Apps enjoying increasing success within the world of business, the Chromebook will become an essential element in Google's toolkit.

3: Speed

No other device gives you this much speed for such a low price. Because ChromeOS is a single-minded platform, it doesn't suffer from bloat like most other operating systems. A device featuring an Intel Celeron 2955U 1.4 GHz and 2 GB of RAM feels far more powerful than it should. 

4: Efficiency

By its nature, the Chromebook lends itself to an efficient experience. When you work with a Chromebook, you know what you're getting into. Although you can use the internet exactly as you would any other machine, you'll find fewer distractions than you would on a standard PC. You work, full screen (for the most part), focused on the task at hand. And because there is absolutely no learning curve, getting up to speed on the device is like hopping from one web browser to another.

5: Reliability

Remember, ChromeOS is based on Linux, so it already enjoys an incomparable level of reliability. And because the users won't be installing the standard applications, there's little to no concern for malware and virus infections. 
These devices just work. That means an added cost savings for businesses, very little downtime, and hardly any user training. Imagine not having to spend resources removing viruses and malware on a daily basis. Imagine not having to hand-hold users on how to use a PC.

6: Browser-based work


Most everything we do now is tackled through a web browser , so much so that the software on a standard PC is slowly becoming waste. With that in mind, why would most users even need a standard PC when they can do everything they need with a web browser  and one of the best browsers on the market?

7: Apps and add-ons


Chromebook is nothing but an over hyped web browser, think again. With an ever-growing app store, there are more tools than you might expect. And as the Chromebook continues to rise in popularity, the app store will continue to expand to include increasing numbers of business-focused tools.

8: Cloud friendliness


Remember a few years back when no one knew what the cloud was going to be? 
Now we know, and it's become essential to doing business. The Chromebook is the ideal cloud-centric tool on the market. But even without the cloud, the Chromebook still functions (working in offline mode). If your work has migrated to the cloud or soon will why not make use of the single best cloud platform available.

9: Outstanding hardware


I've compared the track pads and keyboards of the low-end Chromebooks to those of higher-end hardware. I have to say, the Chromebooks get the nod on almost every instance especially with the track pads. Getting quality builds for such a low cost is a huge plus for businesses that need machines that users can use effectively. Even comparing the flagship Chromebook Pixel to a MacBook Pro with Retina, the Chromebook hardware wins, hands down.
