A great deal of thought has gone into this question, and it’s still ongoing. However, we can be reasonably sure that the answer as we know it is likely changing.
The key things to bear in mind are:
- First, chromebooks are not a new or strange thing.
- Second, chromebooks are not a replacement for laptops.
- Third, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to run complex digital marketing campaigns on a chromebook. It’s just not a good option.
- Fourth, unless you are running a very small business or very lean team, there’s very little use in spending hundreds of pounds on a new laptop if you can’t run some basic marketing tasks.
- Fifth, if you have a need for a laptop, you will be able to upgrade your laptop with a chromebook for next to nothing.
How are Chromebooks different?
Before we get into the reasons as to why you shouldn’t use a chromebook, let’s look at the main differences between laptops and chromebooks.
- They are not just similar, they are different.
- They can run the same tasks as traditional laptops.
- They are not the same device.
First, we need to clarify what a laptop is. It’s a personal computer designed to be portable. This includes both laptops and chromebooks.
It’s not the same as a smartphone. A smartphone is a mobile device designed to make phone calls, send and receive text messages, and run applications.
The most common laptop is a 15inch 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU laptop with Windows 8.
A chromebook is a similar device, but it’s the first version of the device that will be produced. It’s essentially a stripped down Windows 8 machine with a much smaller battery, 2GB of RAM, an Intel Atom processor, a camera and a keyboard.
Second, laptops are more powerful than chromebooks. They can run most applications, and they have more RAM and CPU horsepower.
A laptop is going to be twice the power of a chromebook.
This is where it gets complicated.
Chromebooks are not just similar. They are different.
Chromebooks are not laptops
Firstly, you probably thought a laptop was a smaller, more portable version of a desktop.
This is wrong.
A laptop is a desktop computer with a keyboard and a screen (or touch screen). It’s not a laptop (or a tablet) unless you are using your laptop to read a book or write emails.
If you are using your laptop on your desk, that’s a laptop, even if it’s a chromebook.
A laptop is not a chromebook
Chromebooks are a stripped down version of Windows 8. They are not just similar, they are different.
They are not like Windows 8, they are not like Android, they are not a stripped down version of Windows.
On top of that, they are not even a version of Windows.
- They are Windows 8.
- They are a version of Windows.
- They are not Windows 8.
Third, a laptop is a desktop
A laptop is a desktop computer.
It’s not a tablet, a smartphone or a chromebook.
A laptop is simply a desktop computer with a keyboard.
It’s not a phone, it’s not a tablet, and it’s not a Chromebook.
It’s a computer, period.
It’s not a laptop, and it’s not a tablet.
A laptop cannot be used as a phone, tablet, or Chromebook. It can only use those devices to run Windows and applications.
That said, a laptop can be used as a phone, tablet, or Chromebook, and it can also be used to run Android apps.
For example, the Dell XPS 15 is a laptop that has Windows 8 on it. It’s also a phone, a tablet, and a Chromebook.
Chromebooks are not an alternative to laptops
Chromebooks are not a replacement for laptops. You can run the same applications on both a Chromebook and a laptop.
You can install the same applications as you would on a laptop.
This is not a replacement.
Laptops can be used as a phone, tablet, or Chromebook.
They can be used to run Android apps.
The main reason you can’t do this with a chromebook is it’s not a Windows 8 machine. Some Chromebooks do have Windows 8 installed, but it’s only a stripped down version of Windows.
And even if it were Windows 8, it would not be a good choice for digital marketing.
The most common problems with using a laptop
If you want to run basic marketing tasks, you need to use a laptop.
Here are some of the most common problems you will have using a laptop:
- You can’t use a laptop for marketing
- There’s no keyboard
- You can’t install applications
- You can’t use it as a phone or a tablet, or as a Chromebook
- You can’t run Android apps
A Chromebook is not a laptop
Chromebooks are a stripped down version of Windows 8. They are not like Windows 8, they are not like Android, they are not a stripped down version of Windows.
They are Windows 8.
The main reason you can’t run marketing tasks on a Chromebook is the same reason you can’t run them on a laptop…
Chromebooks are not a Windows 8 machine.
Chromebooks have less power than laptops. That said, a laptop can run the same applications as a Chromebook.
Some Chromebooks can run Windows 8, but they are a stripped down version of Windows 8.
They aren’t running the entire operating system.
On top of that, they don’t have a keyboard, which means they can’t use your keyboard for digital marketing tasks.
And they don’t have a screen, which means you can’t use your screen to read a book, watch a movie, or do anything else that requires a screen.
A laptop has a screen, keyboard, and a screen reader.
A laptop can be used as a phone, tablet, or Chromebook. It can also run Android apps.
A Chromebook is a stripped down version of a Windows 8. It’s not a Windows 8, not a Windows 10, and it’s not an Android tablet.
A laptop can only be used as a computer, and it can only run Windows and applications.
