For people who already spend most of their time on the computer online and who want high mobility and a fast experience. If you already use GMail, the Chrome Browser, Google docs, etc., the Chromebook is designed to remove a lot of the esoteric system-related distractions and worries that come with a conventional operating system like Windows.
Most people only use their netbooks or laptops to browse the internet, listen to music, watch videos, and play casual games. For this majority, a complicated operating system is both unnecessary and bogs down hardware with unneeded things while on the go, leaving your computer experience feeling sluggish.
The streamlined, net-focused Chromebook’s compact size, cloud features, 8-second startup time, instant resume, and 8+ hour battery life is suited for travelling or using at wi-fi hotspots.
