The faster, simpler, and more secure computer
Chromebooks are designed to get better with automatic updates. Some of the latest updates include:
New Login Screen
Chromebooks now feature a login page that integrates 2-step verification for those who have enabled the security feature.
With Gmail Offline and other offline apps, you can now do more with your Chromebook, even when disconnected from the internet.
Chromebooks now support NTFS (New Technology File System) drives, making it easier to connect your external storage devices.
Chromebooks boot in 8 seconds, and resume instantly. With Chrome Instant built in, web pages that you frequently visit will begin loading as soon as you start typing the URL. Chromebooks also use prerendering technology to load websites faster - for example, with Instant Pages in Google search, certain search results appear to load almost instantly.

No blue screens or maintenance. The Chromebook just keeps getting better.
Simple means doing more with your Chromebook. The Omnibox at the top doubles as both an address and search bar. The New Tab page makes it easy to visit apps, bookmarks, and most visited site. Additionally, Chromebooks automatically update when you turn them on: all of your apps stay up-to-date, and you get the latest version of the operating system without having to think about it.

No anti-virus need apply.
Chromebooks run the first consumer operating system designed from the ground up to defend against the ongoing threat of malware and viruses. Chromebooks use the principle of “defense in depth” to provide multiple layers of protection, including sandboxing, data encryption , and verified boot . With web storage, your email, photos, documents, and data are stored in the cloud, even if you lose your Chromebook. Multiple logins and Guest Mode allow you to share your Chromebook securely with friends.
No more missed emails. Get the web everywhere.
With built-in Wi-Fi and 3G, Chromebooks make it easy to get connected anytime and anywhere.* 3G models come with flexible internet plans, including a free introductory mobile plan, so you can keep working on the go. Coupled with long battery life, Chromebooks enable you to be truly mobile - even without a place to stop and plug in. Chromebooks also have Google Cloud Print built in, allowing you to print to any cloud-connected printer from anywhere.
|All-day battery life means that you can connect anywhere and never miss a beat on the web.|
No additional software required.
