The Year of the Chromebook?


According to Gartner, world sales of Chromebooks has grown by 27% in 2015. That's 7.3 million!
I was there when they were still known as the CR-48.
I documented a lot of my experience both here, here, and here.

It is semi-amazing to me that here we are nearly five years later and the Chrome OS is not just a ubiquitous browser, but the "system" is running a wide variety of laptops, desktops, and netbooks.
According to StatCounter, as of March 2015Chrome is not only the most popular mobile browser without tablets but also with them counted in. 
And I am here to tell you, my family STILL uses that little demo model of the Chromebook. Nearly five years later, we are now finally contemplating getting a newer version just because the old one was probably never designed to last this long.

According to Joe Wilcox, this is the year of the Chromebook.  Read his article and it is not hard to see why.

Schools and businesses are pushing them big because it removes so many barriers.

I can't wait to see how Microsoft and Apple are going to respond...
