Many people use their computers for simple tasks, such as browsing the web, listening to music, watching videos, etc. Most people don’t really tax their computer, but still buy computers that are way too powerful for their needs. A surprisingly low number of people actually use their computer to its full potential.
Over the past few years, Chromebooks have emerged as an alternative computing experience for these people: A fast, light and slick experience for those who live their lives on the web. The best part was that they often cost hundreds of dollars less than their Windows counterparts. They bested all other computers in their category, with performance that seems to be better than much more expensive Windows Laptops.
But sometimes, you would need to play a game, or use some software, and that’s when you would miss Windows. You would miss the versatality of it. Fear not, since Google is opening the gates for Android apps on ChromeOS with its latest alpha update, ChromeOS 43 for the ASUS Chromebook Flip.
Google announced this feature at I/O, and now it is finally rolling out. What do you think?
