Simple and speedy for everyone in your family

Setting up your Chromebook is as simple as logging in to your Google Account – giving you instant access to your documents. Long battery life and offline access to Google Docs, Google Sheets, Gmail and more help you stay on track with tasks and schoolwork, even when you're on the go. And to help things run smoothly, Chromebooks update automatically, keeping the software speedy and up to date with the latest features.
