Chromebooks have taken the U.S. classroom by storm. According to market research firm, FutureSource Consulting, the Google Chrome operating system is now 58 percent of school-purchased mobile devices in 2016.

Ever since Chromebooks first launched, they have been on an upward trajectory gaining higher rates of adoption and more market share each year. At the same time, tablets have been seemingly on the decline with each year resulting in less demand at a consumer level. Although that has not stopped manufacturers from releasing new models each year. In fact, over the last year or two the line between Chromebooks and tablets has blurred massively with Chromebooks taking on more tablet features and even gaining Android app compatibility. Which now means that regardless of whether you are looking for a Chromebook or a tablet, there are plenty of options now available.
Google has been rather busy marketing their own hardware as of late and the #madebygoogle brand is becoming more and more visible in the consumer market. Since the launch of the latest Pixel phones, Pixelbook and all their other Googley products, the Google Store has separated itself from most of the third-party stuff that once resided there.
A new round of Chromebook videos have surfaced and are currently running on network television channels everywhere. These new videos beckon to users who are “over the old way of doing things.”
