Chromebooks: The Future?


Chromebooks are being mooted as the future of laptop computers, with many of the world’s largest computer manufacturers preparing to bring out new models later this year. The innovative, new cloud-based laptops are described as a more secure option than conventional PCs, and with weak sales of Windows 8 so far recorded, experts have speculated that it was only a matter of time before PC makers turned to something else to boost their profits. Acer and Google are reported to be adding updates to their older Chromebook models, while Asus, HP, Lenovo and Samsung are also rumored to be planning entirely new Chromebooks which will hit the market within the next twelve months.


With their many benefits, Chromebooks are seen as an exciting and innovative way to work and communicate on the go, but their limitations are coming under fire. Relying on a Chromebook as a complete computer system has its problems, not least in that the computer memory included in the small units are very restrictive. The majority of Chromebooks only offer 2GB of RAM; there are some which are blessed with 4GB, but upgrades are rendered impossible by the slim construction of the laptops.


The Chrome operating system which many of them run combined with other software such as iTunes or any Adobe programs can easily fill up the RAM memory of a Chromebook and make them impractical and constrained units for those who wish to rely solely on one portable system. There is no doubt that Chromebooks are gaining popularity among some core groups; Acer, for instance, are marketing their latest offering purely for students, who need a powerful unit with the ability to work on the go. But for those who need a powerful system which has the capacity to hold all of their personal files as well as multitask, whether it is for work or leisure, Chromebooks are an unsuitable choice.


Many conventional laptops come readily equipped with plenty of PC or Apple memory, but for those who don’t find it to be quite enough, upgrades are always available. This will aid those who need to download large volumes of data whilst word processing and surfing the web, or those who use their system for the editing of music, video or high resolution images.  Memory upgrades can be purchased in increments of 1GB or 2GB and can vastly improve the overall performance of a laptop until they can outperform the highest specification Chromebooks.
