Chromebook or Laptop PC, what should you get?
Other than the obvious Price deference between a laptop PC and a Chromebook (which can be quite substantial) what else can you expect? So without further due, let’s dig in.
On the operating system (OS) side of things a laptop PC runs Microsoft Windows 10, which has been the predominant OS for over 30 years in the computer industry. Based on this fact alone the Windows platform is compatible with a lot more software, applications and games compared to the Google Chrome computing platform, which in turns has been around for only the past 10 years or so. Windows Operating System is available on a variety of devices, including Desktop, Laptop and tablet.
On the other hand Chromebooks are more affordable than Laptop PCs, which can make them appealing to some people but are also more limited in term of capacity and compatibility with Windows based software. For example if you need to run your accounting software like QuickBooks or Sage for your business, a Chrome Book is definitely not going to be a good choice for you. On the other hand if you just need a basic platform for your kids to access online content and do schoolwork a Chromebook may just be what you need.
Simply put, it boils down to what you really need to do with it. If you’re only planning on sending and receiving emails, do online research and wright an occasional document, a Chromebook is probably sufficient. On the other hand if you are running a business or taking a college class you are going to find it too slow to be productive and definitely very limiting in terms of Hardware compatibility and available software for the Google platform.
The bottom line
If you want to use a computer for business purposes or in a network environment with Office 365, shared files and accounting software, etc… you should probably look at getting a Windows based Operating system.
If you just need to get on the internet occasionally to check E-mails, or wright a document using Google docs, you can probably get away with using a Chromebook.
If you are still undecided and have questions regarding your particular needs, please contact one of our technician at the number above, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
