Even with dedicated IT departments, businesses and schools struggle with the same complex, costly and insecure computers as the rest of us. To address this, we’re also announcing Chromebooks for Business and Education.
Chromebooks: work better.
Crashes, long boot times, application conflicts, endless updates, viruses, security issues and obsolete hardware all frustrate IT managers and end users – and most users don’t need or want the complexity and annoyance of their current PCs.
Increasingly the browser is the only tool users need, making a new and better computing model possible. Chromebooks can instantly run your browser-based apps, whether in the cloud or behind your firewall, and apps virtualized through technologies like Citrix®. And an entire fleet of Chromebooks can be managed from one web-based console – making life better for users and IT admins alike.
