Chromebooks are becoming more popular nowadays, thanks to slew of improvements Google has brought to the cloud-centric operating system, Chrome OS, making it the most secure platform on the planet.
Asides the security edge, Chrome OS is perhaps more powerful as its able to run apps from three additional operating systems, including Windows and Linux.
While Apple and Windows fans claim that their respective platforms can run the Chrome browser, as well as having the benefits of Chromebooks with cutting-edge tools for content creation; and even Linux users arguing that Chromebooks can’t be used for software development.
It behoves us to clear the myths and to assure you of the conceivable alternative in the new reality of Chromebooks.
- Chromebooks does not support software development
- Can't run Windows on Chromebooks
And the Pixelbook is an exciting new step for Chromebooks, as until now it could do little more than browse the web, also bringing support for Android apps to Chromebooks.
- Chromebooks are limiting & slow
Pixelbooks can run dozens of tabs and extensions pretty fast, and Google is already working on integrating Intel’s high-performance “Kaby Lake G” processors, with Radeon graphics for faster processing capabilities.
Besides, Chrome extensions are so powerful that its result is basically more of “super internet” that’s way better and functional than the regular use. Albeit, using too many extensions in Chrome does bug it down, and makes it a bit slower on especially outside the chrome environment on Windows or MacOS platforms.
However these problems are not present on high-end Chromebooks, like the Google's Pixelbook; even with Acer Chromebook 13, Chromebook Spin 13 and Chromebook Spin 15 also joining the high-end Chromebook.
