Chromebook is a category of notebook computers and mobile devices that runs Google’s cloud-based Chrome OS operating system. While they lack the processing power and higher-end features of standard laptops, Chromebooks are built primarily for Web surfing and are optimized for this purpose with the Google Chrome Web browser as well as near instant-on and instant-resume capabilities.
