fewer people feel the need for a stationary computer. Today, many use smartphones and tablets for accessing the Internet, and those who need a large display to work with text and other tasks are chosen by chrombo.
What does chrombank differ from ordinary laptops?
When searching for a desktop PC or laptop, the selection is limited to two operating systems - Apple MacOS and Microsoft Windows. However, since 2011, there is a third option - Chrome OS from Google. On this operating system there are chrombo.
What is Chrome OS?
This is a Linux database distribution with integrated Google services. Many of its functions require internet connection. In the most primitive sense of Chrome OS - this is the same Chrome browser for PC: everything that is being done in it can be performed in Chrome OS. Programs intended for Windows or Mac, in Chrome OS will not run, unless they do not have a web version or mobile analog.
Simple words, Chrome OS is a browser with advanced features that controls the entire computer. As in Windows, it provides a desktop environment. Some Chrome OS functions are performed without network connections. At the moment there are more than 200 applications for this system working offline. In addition, many chrombus have APK support for Android.
What will not do on the chrombo?
CHROME OS computer is a compact, inexpensive device designed for a wide range of tasks. The enormous popularity of chrombuk won among Western schoolchildren and students. However, it is worth noting that for some purposes they are not suitable.

If you hope that having bought a chrombo, you can run the latest PC novelties on it, then you are mistaken. Chrombo for this is not intended.
Chrombuki and all sorts of creative crews are not suitable - 3D models, architects, photographers, video edges, etc. Their computational forces are enough to work with the text, in Microsoft Office applications and Skype communication, however, they will not be enough to handle 3D graphics. Even to work in Photoshop will have to transplane the stationary computer or search for a mobile editor.
Chrombuks do not possess high performance (with rare exception). Usually their price does not exceed 20 thousand rubles. They use low-power components. In practice, this means that the chromboboard will not be able to handle 500 browser tabs and perform the resource-intensive tasks. Users with modest needs will be satisfied. But if you need to work in Chrome OS with the possibility of launching applications for Linux, Android and perform complex operations, take a look at Google PixelBook.
Is it worth buying a chrombo?
If your main activity at a computer is Facebook, YouTube, Netflix and Internet surfing, chrombo will not disappoint you. He will fulfill everything you will require from it, and money to buy it is 2-3 times less than an ordinary laptop or PC based on Windows. In addition, you can run most of your favorite Android applications.
For hardcore gamers, 3D designers and those who work with Mac and Windows applications, chromboek is definitely not an option.
What are chrombuki?
Just like computers on Windows, chrombuky are produced in various form factors. There are models with a large display, and there are compact with a diagonal of 10 inches. Some have touchscreen and have support for of the stylus. In general, choose from what.
