A chromebook could actually be considered a netbook. A netbook essentially is a laptop made for lighter use than a standard laptop. Basically made for just doing things online and not running applications like photoshop for example. Some netbooks run windows however the chromebooks do not. They run their own operating system made by google called chrome OS. The chromebooks are really nice if you just plan on using it for online tasks. These machines will have less memory and hard drive space than your standard laptop which is one of the things that keeps the cost down.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating for providing you a quick answer!
