What About Chromebooks?

Dear Computer Lady,

What do you think of Chromebooks?

I bought one 6 months ago and I love it! It boots very quickly, no viruses or malware, no bloatware, automatic updates, no software installations, no complicated OS, no slowing down, fast charging, safe from hackers, inexpensive, etc.

I have had a Dell PC and a MacBook and much prefer my Acer Chromebook.


Dear Shari,

I think a Chromebook is great if you are using your computer for online activities. All the features that you mention are great.

The only downside to a Chromebook is that you can’t install Windows software on it like you can on your PC.

For example, you can’t install Quickbooks on your Chromebook, but you can use Quickbooks online service. You can’t install Microsoft Office, but you can use Google Docs online. You might not be able to install your favorite game, but you can play online games.
