What is a Chromebook?

A Chromebook is a laptop that runs the Chrome OS, a cloud-based operating system. The Chromebook utilizes cloud-based storage, web applications, and Google Apps for Education. Since Chromebooks operate using the Chrome OS they boot in seconds unlike computers running a Windows or Mac OS. Additionally, they are by design not vulnerable to viruses and most malware that impacts other operating systems.
Marysville School District has chosen the HP Chromebook 11 because it is a rugged laptop built to withstand everyday school activities. Students will have a 16GB hard drive to store files directly onto the computer for offline work, and USB peripherals will work with the Chromebook. There is also an SD card slot in the event a student needs additional local storage capacity.
