Google Chromebooks are fast, easy to use, lightweight, and ready for anything. CTL's top-rated powerful Chromebooks, Chromebooks for Education, and Chromebooks for Enterprise offer innovative features, such as Chrome OS and cloud-based storage, and best-in-class performance that’ll provide everything you need to get the job done.

What is the difference between a Chromebook and a laptop?

While the two may look alike and offer similar features, Chrome notebooks and laptops feature different capabilities. Unlike traditional laptops that run on Windows or macOS, Google Chromebooks run on the Chrome operating system (OS), which is made and updated by Google.

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.

What Chromebook models are available?

Several Chromebook models are available at CTL, from convertible Chromebooks for education to full HD touch screen Google Chromebooks.

Each model offered at CTL is high-quality and capable of all-day performance, ensuring you can get your work done wherever you go. With an array of productivity and collaboration tools at your disposal, you’ll also be able to work better than ever at school, in the office, or on the train. We even carry a wide selection of Chromebook Tablets that are easy to transport from place-to-place and offer robust functionality for a range of activities.

What are the pros and cons of a Chromebook?

If you’re unsure about whether a Google Chromebook laptop is a right fit for you, here are a few pros and cons to keep in mind:

Pros

  • Affordable: Many Chromebooks are less expensive than laptops since they are more compact and mainly operate on the cloud.
  • Secure: Compared to traditional laptops, Chromebooks aren’t as susceptible to viruses since Google implements several layers of protection to keep your data out of malicious hands.
  • Lightweight: Because many applications are web-based, Chromebooks can often bypass the heavy components that weigh down your laptop.

Cons

  • Limited internal storage: As mentioned, Chromebook applications are primarily cloud-based, Chromebooks don't require the large amounts of storage that users are used to needing on Windows computers. That said, many CTL Chromebooks are available with plenty of extra storage.
  • Limited offline desktop video processing capabilities: While there are now services offered for cloud based photo and video editing and even online gaming, if you’re looking for a laptop that can support intense offline gaming or offline video and photo editing, a Chromebook may not be a good fit. 

Despite the cons, users will have access to Google Drive, allowing them to upload large files without worrying about the storage of their laptops. There are also plenty of Chromebook accessories and Chromebook parts to optimize your Chrome notebook further.

How much is a Google Chromebook?

The Google Chromebook prices will vary depending on the model and specs of the specific Chromebook you’re interested in. That said, most Chromebooks in our collection will range from $59 to $400, so there’s an option for every budget.
