A Chromebook is a laptop that runs the Google Chrome OS, which relies on having an internet connection for cloud-based storage and web-based applications. They offer rapid boot times despite relatively low-power processors and small amounts of storage. They're not for intensive tasks or gaming and offline use is limited, but for the always-connected user who just needs a responsive, portable machine for web browsing and general office and work tasks, there's plenty of value.
