Features of Chromebook

Chromebooks boot in 8 seconds, and resume instantly. Web pages that you frequently visit will begin loading as soon as you start typing the URL. Chromebooks run the first consumer operating system designed to defend against malware and viruses without any third-party security tool. It means that you will not need any anti-virus program to stay safe. You can see more features at Chromebook features page.
