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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.

We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with the new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod. Admins : For educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them.

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them. Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work. Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
