  • We will get a doubt that to use Chromebook is net connection necessary? In online also there is a possibility to use Chromebook. Gmail can be accessed and we can do changes to documents in Google Drive. We can view some kind of games. In the Chrome Web Store for that convenience, there are apps to run in online. After adding those to "Chrome OS", even if there is no net connection, those can be used. But Chromebook is convenient to those who are attached more to Network. When compared to the Laptops working with Windows OS, Chromebook takes less time for booting. It will be ready within 7 seconds after put on to work. Battery charging will also withstand for much time. Once charged we can use up to 9.5 hours. Weight is lesser compared to others and is very convenient for long journey travelers. If any problem arises in Chromebook, then as if in mobile we can do 'Factory Reset' which is otherwise called as 'Power Wash'. Factory Reset can be done entering into settings and by this it will be changed as how it would be at the time of purchase. Others who want to use the Chromebook, they can log in with their Gmail ID to use. To disable of anyone using like that, go to the settings and disable 'Guest Access'. Thanks!
