Chromebook For Schoolwork?

Recommended Posts

There are a few threads on these laptops but not quite the info I was looking for.

 

I've been looking for a laptop for my friend's 7 year old (he's quite intelligent) and spotted a second-hand HP Chromebook, however both I and his mother are only familiar with Windows. The intended use would be for internet, google, emails, youtube etc but what's the position if  ( in the future) he wants to use a printer or download software, and possibly use it for schoolwork ?

Think of Chromebooks as Android powered laptops.

The vast majority of apps you can get on a phone, you can get on a Chromebook, this now includes all the Microsoft office stuff.

 

I have no issues connecting to my printer on mine, it's quite straightforward.

And from what I understand, schools are quite into supplying Chromebooks for schoolwork due to the low cost of them.

The Middle School in our town provide the kids with Chromebooks to take home.
