Google’s netbook: Chromebook

Google will release their “laptop”, Actually we want to call it netbook – Chromebook. Because it bring us the impression is a netbook, but we think it might be some special than normal netbook. Google call it a laptop without any other local software but just Chrome OS installed, and without local hard driver needed. Everything the user will use just is a web browser, and connect to web, and everything the user needed includes application software, and user’s data, will be on the web – Cloud Service.


Introducing the Chromebook


These are not typical notebooks. With a Chromebook you won’t wait minutes for your computer to boot and browser to start. You’ll be reading your email in seconds. Thanks to automatic updates the software on your Chromebook will get faster over time. Your apps, games, photos, music, movies and documents will be accessible wherever you are and you won’t need to worry about losing your computer or forgetting to back up files. Chromebooks will last a day of use on a single charge, so you don’t need to carry a power cord everywhere. And with optional 3G, just like your phone, you’ll have the web when you need it. Chromebooks have many layers of security built in so there is no anti-virus software to buy and maintain. Even more importantly, you won’t spend hours fighting your computer to set it up and keep it up to date.” – From official google blog.
