What is a Chromebook ?
A Chromebook is a small laptop specifically designed to access the Internet. It runs on the Chrome operating system, which resembles the Google Chrome Internet browser. GBA uses Google Apps for Education, Chromebooks utilise Internet resources, specialised apps, and software for documents, spreadsheets, and presentations similar to Microsoft Office.
