Chromebooks are web-based devices that run Google’s new Chrome OS, utilising cloud-based storage that leaves the laptops requiring less internal memory storage.

The “cloud” acts as your hard drive; saving your files to the ether. All applications, including GoogleDocs and a vast variety of Chrome applications also run directly through the connected browser.
