NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Chromebooks Market is expected to reach USD 14.03 Billion by 2027, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Chromebooks are fundamentally lightweight substitutes for laptops/tablets that function on ChromeOS, a Linux-based operating system, which uses Chrome browser for its operations. Chromebooks are developed to manage less processor-intensive and demanding jobs and are much less expensive as compared to Windows OS/ macOS counterparts. The market is witnessing significant growth attributed to the growing emphasis by manufacturers to launch new products, e.g., Dell, in August 2019, launched the Chromebook Enterprise laptop, a 2-in-1 device in association with Google.
Chromebook offers the benefits of lowering the cost of the software. Several persons and enterprises, employ G-Suite, a combined set of cloud-native cooperation, secure, and productivity apps with the capability to manage essential computing requirements comprising email, calendar, chatting, word processing, and spreadsheets, among others, smoothly and seamlessly at a very cheap rate of USD 6.0 per month for the basic package. Apart from G-suite, cheaper or free browser-based substitutes may also be used, such as the free online version of Microsoft Office or the entry-level plan of Office 365 that offers users with email facility and cloud-based storage for in addition to Word, Excel, OneNote, and PowerPoint, among others.
Chromebooks come at a lower price, primarily owing to a reduction in the cost of hardware use. These devices possess no moving parts and possibly less susceptible to suffer from any sort of mechanical faults, leading to better reliability and durability, thus saving repairing costs. Moreover, a majority of the operations in a Chromebook being cloud-based, there is no requirement for any expenses on buying physical storage for taking data backup.
Additionally, Chromebooks less susceptible to antivirus attacks. The device's focus on cloud computing, and none or much less installation of the software; make it almost impossible for a virus to get installed on the system. Besides, Chrome OS is considered one of the most operating systems available in the market and a virus protection standpoint: 'sandboxing,' 'verified boots,' and automatic periodic updates assist in the prevention of infection.
