It's time for a reality check. Just about everyone caught the 'must have fever' when Apple introduced the tablet. Since then it has seen a number of new versions and improvements, not to mention all of the copycat clones who have since introduced their own tablets. The craze to get the latest greatest gadget may finally be on the wane. No matter how much you want it to, it simply can not replace a notebook proper without the attached keyboard. It's just they way to make use of the gadget and using a screen keyboard means you sacrifice some of that precious screen space real estate. That is something no one wants to do or can afford to do if they hope to be productive.
Fortunately we no longer have to shell out $400-$1,000 or more for a notebook/laptop these days. There are many more choices and the new trend these days is to forgo the notebook/laptop altogether and just 'Go Chrome'. Google's Chromebook is finally catching on and for all the right reasons.
The following highlights the top 5 reasons why Chromebooks are better for students in school and for you at home than the Apple iPad.
It's also far easier to manage several Chromebooks than the same number of iPads, because the Chromebook files live in the “cloud,” students can be up and running in seconds on a new device if their machine should fail or break. Apps can be configured for all of the devices with just a few clicks.
Educators are quick to emphasize collaboration, and they found that Google’s Apps for Education Suite is easier to use collaboratively on Chromebooks.
