OEMs are eyeing for the growth in Chromebooks
Chromebooks are lightweight laptops designed for people who spend most of their time online. Chromebooks look like traditional laptops, which is kind of the point because they aim to replace traditional laptops. They are fast and secure and support multiple users. Many Chromebooks have an 11.6-inch screen, but 13, 14, and even 15.6-inch versions. However, If you love Microsoft Office products, a Chromebook is probably not for you.
Windows is the most widely used desktop operating system in existence today. Hence ,Google is pushing the OEMs to use its own free online suite of Office-like services. Many of these services are comparable to components of Microsoft Office, but they do lack features that you may have come to rely on. Chromebooks too have their own drawbacks and may not be suitable for everyone.
Enterprise and education organizations now have 21 supported Chrome Enterprise device options that can run full-featured Windows apps in Parallels Desktop, both online and offline. Employees, staff and students located anywhere can seamlessly run Zoom, Cisco Webex and GoToMeeting Windows apps in Parallels Desktop to enjoy full-featured video conferencing on their Chrome OS devices.
Chromebooks are basically designed to perform all their computing and storage functions on Google’s Cloud platform. In order to make the full use of a Chromebook, you need to get comfortable with the idea of having your files, books, pictures and music on Google Drive.
Unlike regular laptops, there is no way of connecting a Chromebook to a printer. However, this does not mean that you cannot print from a Chromebook. However, Chromebooks have their own version of free online suite of office-like services that allow you to work on documents, Excel like spreadsheets and presentations.
Chromebooks are becoming increasingly popular with the increasing number of workers that want to work remotely. A Chromebook is basically a laptop minus the storage that other laptops usually provide. Google Chromebooks, now supported by both AMD and Intel processors, as well as 12 new Chromebook and Chromebox devices from Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo.
The COVID-19 hit pandemic has bring a huge growth for PCs and tablets as a whole, but it was Google’s Chromebook initiative that really proved to be a hit during the pandemic. According to a new report from Canalys, though, things were even better than we thought, with Chromebooks seeing 275% growth entering 2021.
Intel announced that its next-gen business processors are powered by the 11th-Gen platform with vPro. The new vPro systems provide the best productivity experience, with up to 23% faster productivity with Office 365 and 50% faster productivity with video conferencing, according to Intel executives. It also delivers 1.8x faster video editing. Intel also demonstrated its Control Enforcement Technology or CET as a strength of its system that can help block a control flow attack, something that a competing notebook from rival AMD was unable to do.
Chromebooks from HP lead the charge with 4.3 million units sold, 633% growth compared to 2020. Lenovo was right behind with 3.1 million units, a 309% increase. Acer, Dell, and Samsung all sold between 1 and 1.4 million, though Samsung saw a boost of a whopping 2,230% during the past year.
