Chromebooks were introduced to the world by Google in June 2011. At that time many computer experts thought it was a waste of time by Google and just a silly way to increase the influence of Chrome, Google’s browser which had been introduced in 2008.
Now almost ten years later Chromebooks account for about 10% of the computer market, significantly more than Apple’s Mac OS.
Though Gartner doesn’t include Chromebook shipments along with traditional PC (Windows/Mac/Linux) market results, they did report that Chromebooks sales grew by approximately 90% in Q3 of 2020 compared to Q3 2019.
Many of the sales are to education but there are also lots of regular, value-conscious buyers who find Chromebooks very attractive. They are usually fast, light, durable, inexpensive laptops with very low maintenance.
In this presentation Terry Rooney will show why Chromebooks have been gaining market share very aggressively, and why you might want to consider buying one.
