Chromebook is different from Windows 10 or Mac OS X; it runs Google’s Chrome OS. Chromebooks are mainly suitable for users who need to be connected to the Internet most of the time and have to store documents and applications in the cloud. So, Chromebook doesn’t have uch storage space and are thus cheaper than other laptops. Here are the reasons why Chromebook is not a good option for some people.

Otherwise, Chromebook is not a good choice for you. You may still access the Windows software like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop, but the cloud version only.
