Chromebooks are increasingly popular. Right after Christmas, Amazon indicated that two of the top 3 laptops sold on its website during the holiday season were the Acer and Samsung Chromebooks. They are now the top 2 selling laptops in the United States.
Chromebooks are increasingly being used by companies because of their convenience. Chromebooks are lighter, more efficient and have a longer battery life than most laptops, with a limited up-front investment. Healthcare chain Mollen has installed Chromebooks in 4,000 of its clinics, as well as educational company Kaplan in their call centers.

The Chromebook has also a lot of success in schools. It’s no surprise when you consider its advantages: low cost and sufficient access to more than enough features used at school level. An unlimited number users can log on, with very fast switching time between accounts. Everyone is working on the same version and access to upgrades is free and automatic.
The rapid rise of the Chromebooks is redefining the field of laptops, and poses a direct threat to Microsoft’s hegemony (see here and here). Microsoft’s latest ad campaign, Scroogled, mocking the Chromebooks, is another sign that Chromebooks are changing the laptop landscape.
