It’s a PC, but not. That’s what Google calls the Chromebook, or as it likes to call it, the web. The Chromebook is a PC-like device that’s completely dependent on the web and on the cloud, and turns all established PC norms on its head. It’s basically a collection of all of Google’s online efforts to date – mail, docs, calendar and a host of others. Users will be able to download web apps from the Chrome Web Store to increase productivity or to play games, and best of all, everything is synced on to the cloud. That means even if you leave your Chromebook at home, you’re still be able to access your documents and other files using other computers if you want. Google also promises to keep the Chromebook up to date as it automatically gets updates and relevant patches through the net, similar to what Google does with its Android devices. Since there are no apps to run and everything takes place on the web, Google also says that the Chromebook is resistant to traditional viruses, and starts up almost instantly, with a rated 8 second boot time. All Chromebooks will be fitted with WiFi, and many will be sporting 3G. According to Engadget, Google won’t be pricing these devices the traditional way, like an outright cash purchase – instead users pay a monthly fee ($28 per user for businesses and $20 per user for schools). This makes the Chromebook especially attractive to business customers, as the Chromebook makes PCs in the workplace an operating expense, rather than a capital one. We’ve included the extremely well done (and funny) introduction video of Chromebook below.
