I have written a number of times about Chromebooks, the inexpensive and very useful laptop computers. (See https://goo.gl/AAaOZr for a list of my past articles about Chromebooks.) They also are generally considered to be more secure than Windows or even Macintosh computers.
I have owned a Chromebook for three years or so and use it often. It is very secure, boots up quickly, and it only cost about $200. Best of all, its software is always up to date, the same as the newest Chromebooks. The newer Chromebooks may be a bit lighter and have faster processors, but my older system’s software is identical to what is installed in the brand-new Chromebooks.
Unlike Microsoft and Apple products, Chromebooks automatically update the operating system whenever a new version is released. Most releases are small, incremental improvements and are released every few weeks. There is never a huge download like Windows 10 or the Macintosh OS X Yosemite that change lots of things and sometimes break installed programs.
Ryan Dube has written an article entitled Make an Easy Switch to Chromebook Now (and Never Look Back) that describes his conversion to Chromebooks. As a former Windows user, Ryan describes the reasons he changed and also tells about some of the Chromebook applications he uses, both online and offline.
