You all must have heard about Chromebooks and must be wondering what exactly it is. So in the next 15 minutes, you will understand that from tip to toe.
Based on a real-time survey conducted researchers came to know dell chromebook 11 that people spend theirs 90% of the time in a web browser to access the internet. Most of the things like surfing the internet, checking email, streaming videos and purchasing gizmos, etc. all are done mostly via a browser. If the internet access is closed probably most of you will not even open your laptop or desktop as in the present time most important to us is internet connectivity which we mostly take advantage of from a web browser.
So as we know our laptops are operated by windows, Linux, Mac OS, therefore we have to wait for the system to load and boot all its functions to start our work from Browser.
What if I tell you a laptop that has nothing but a browser! Yes, just a browser so you don’t have to wait too long for your system to boot and load. These laptops go by the name Chromebook or Chrome OS many companies are launching there Chromebook but Dell is overtaking other companies in this segment. If I say precisely it would be Dell Chromebook 11.
I would personally prefer Dell Chromebook 11 as it is available at a very low cost. Since these, all Chromebooks lack operating systems like Windows, Linux, etc therefore the software is low and light that delivers an insane battery life. This Chromebook is missing moving parts in it. So they don’t vibrate and you are comfortable with them at any angle without any worry of damaging any part. It also offers quick service, takes minimal time to load and open.
It is not just a web browser you must have seen chrome web store which offers a variety of application like Google docs, sheets they all can be used in Chromebooks.
Chromebooks don’t slow down as much overtime so if you think about when you use a Mac or Windows computer whenever you are installing any application or uninstalling the application files are getting left behind that will eventually slow down your system but with the Chromebook, you are doing everything to Chrome web browser so those files that are left behind really just don’t exist and if you do install an app it is simply an extension of the chrome web browsers so if you clear your browsing history and cache in there, there is nothing to slow down your Chromebook and it will continue to work super-fast as compared to Windows or Mac.
A big concern I have heard from a lot of people who were thinking about moving to a Chromebook is that they’re gonna have to leave there music collection behind so if you have not already moved was steaming service likes Spotify or Pandora and you still have a huge collection of music that is a way bigger than the hard drives of the Chromebook you are looking at.
You need to look into Google Play Music because it offers a free way to store up to 20000 of your songs in the cloud and then you can play them back anywhere.so you can have access like I said a 20000 of your song on your Chromebook without taking off any storage on it.
Chromebook offers a lot of functionality beyond just web browsing most of them include a built-in SD card reader so if you are into photography and you want to manage those photos the Chromebook provides a great way to view and even store them on their internal hard drive which requires a large hard drive or desktop to store all of them.
Many Chromebooks have hard drive as much as 300 gigabytes of storage which is enough to store more photos than most people will ever take and additionally they have USB ports and HDMI ports so you can hook it up to a TV and there’s a lot more you can do than just using a web browser on the Chromebook.
One of the most convenient things about Dell Chromebook 11 is that as soon as you sign in with your Gmail account it will automatically sync all of your Chrome themes, settings bookmarks and all of that .so you never have to worry about going and finding all of your bookmarks it’s automatically all there as long as you have already done it in another Chrome web browser.
For those people who are not too tech-savvy and don’t know how to avoid websites that may contain viruses, the Dell Chromebook 11 is great because it provides built-in virus protection that automatically updates and will automatically protect you from viruses from any website and during the time I’ve not got 1 virus and I have never heard of anybody getting any viruses so if you traditionally get lots of viruses or spyware on your Windows computer or Mac then Dell Chromebook 11 will be much less stressful and you don’t have to worry about that.
It is the best and an ideal alternative for those who have a bit tight budget and who do not have to work on Photoshop, C++, or do any programming, coding, etc. They use the laptop for normal browsing and bit of light work on excel, emails or to watch movies.
