Best Affordable Laptops: Is The Chromebook What Your Team Needs?

If your small business is trying to find a way to allow your team affordable workstations, it can seem like a really daunting and expensive feat. But, we want you to know that there are some great affordable options available. Today, we’re talking about one of the best affordable laptops, Chromebooks, and how they can bring your staff the resources you need.

Chromebooks are laptops that run Google’s Chrome OS, which is a lightweight operating system that depends on Internet connectivity. These laptops come with a small amount of storage instead, use the cloud to store items and documents. Anything you do in your chrome browser can be done on a Chromebook, so these are great for teams that utilize Google Drive, Google Docs, Gmail and other Google-based productivity suite items.

Affordability

Chromebooks are significantly less expensive than Windows or macOS laptops. Some Chromebooks may be more expensive but options from HP, Acer and Asus are on the lower side of the budget.

Productivity

If your business uses Google Workspace or Microsoft Office productivity suites, your team will not be limited as to what they can accomplish with a Chromebook. If you need them to use other software or standalone applications, there’s a good chance that they will not be able to do so. Depending on the work you are assigning, a Chromebook can be perfect for your team or a hindering. 

Android Integration

Chromebooks also incorporate Google Play Store and can run many Android apps. This means that your team can use productivity or communication apps just as fast as if they were using them on a cellphone.

Security

Chromebooks are relatively safe laptops. With Google’s “Defense in Depth” approach, there are layers of security for threats to face. Since Chrome OS is less utilized, hackers don’t operate toward it as often as higher used interfaces. Even so, their already sturdy safety features can be reinforced with the use of two-step verification.

We recommend Chromebooks as one of the ​​best affordable laptops for a team. If you need help figuring out which would be best for your team’s needs, give MyTek a call today at 623-312-2440.
