Chrome OS

Chrome OS is Google’s operating system for Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. This OS is cloud based, light-weight and always secure with automatic updates.


Chromebooks are light-weight laptops that run Chrome OS. Chromebooks are faster, cheaper options for working in cloud-based applications like G Suite.


Chromeboxes are small form factor PCs that run Chrome OS. Chromeboxes are great options for conference rooms, to display information on television screens in lobbys, or as a cloud-based work station.
