Benefits of the Chrome OS
Speedy (Gonzales) Chrome OS!
The Chrome OS is set to switch on just like you’d use a remote to turn on your television or hit the button of your FM Radio. A promise of less than 9 seconds to boot up the system! The magical wand that makes this happen is the cloud based data storage that is accessible using the Chrome browser and minimal hardware on the device.
Chrome – Dual Role
Sayonara Firefox and IE! As Chrome will play the dual role of a Browser and the Operating System for LG.
Secure – Cloud Based Profiles
Chrome OS takes its data security very seriously. Also, since it has cloud based profiles, your data is safer than ever. User data if any stored on the device is encrypted for added protection. Most of the user data will be linked to their cloud accounts and stored there for ready access from any system.
Chrome devices are smart indeed. They update themselves and keep you in touch with your tech savvy edge with its latest version.
Microsoft office live
The Chrome OS with the help of Microsoft Office Live (free Web app version of Office) handles MS Office documents. So when a user wants to open an Excel spreadsheet, Chrome will launch it with the help of the browser in Office Live.
