Are You the Proper Candidate for a Chromebook?

This week I am "test driving" an HP Chromebook.  This particular model feels sturdier than the Samsung laptop, and I'm glad that our technology team is looking at the HP models to purchase for September. Chromebooks are perfect for schools, because they don't allow any software installs or Internet downloads. (No viruses is a good thing, right?) The Chrome browser works seamlessly in the cloud, connecting with G mail accounts and Google Drive. There is no need for Microsoft Office, because Google Apps offers the creation of documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms, quizzes and more. BUT...if you are like me and use software outside the Internet, such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver, the Chromebook will not be for you.
