The best reason to get a Chromebook is because there are many ways it can make your life easier. First, having such an extremely portable computer meant I could be productive on the road more frequently. On a typical day when I might be on the road and make multiple stops, I won’t take my laptop along unless I’m certain I’m going to use it- it’s just too big and bulky to be all that practical. The chromebook, however, went with me almost everywhere I went. When I found myself with the odd 10 or 20 minutes to kill throughout the day I could easily whip out the Chromebook and get a few things done.Startup was a breeze. There was no need for tutorials or instruction manuals. The Chrome OS runs much like windows in many ways and is fairly intuitive.
