What is the difference between a Chromebook and a laptop?

The Chrome OS provides users with cloud-based programs that are tied to Google’s suite of applications. This offers plenty of versatility for work, school, and play. Users can also take advantage of its robust cloud storage functionality to save documents, videos, and photos without taking up valuable space in their hard drives.
