A great comparison of Chromebooks vs Windows
I'm a huge believer and user of Chromebooks in education. Even with the huge popularity of Chromebooks, there are still a lot of people who don't understand them or think that they can't do a lot of things.
I found a great article that compares Chromebooks vs Windows, explores the claims and misconceptions and is a great resource for anyone thinking about Chromebooks. Many people don't realize how powerful Chromebooks are and how much they can really do.
Microsoft has a bunch of cheap laptops coming out from different manufacturers (around $200) to compete with Chromebooks. People may be swayed to buy them - I recommend against it. They are underpowered and will not perform well.
Chromebooks vs. Windows - The Real Story
The article is setup with a nice column structure and explains each point. I highly recommend taking a look at this.
Chromebooks - definitely awesome for education
