Chromebooks Are Tuned For Speed

Toshiba Chromebook 2
No doubt about it, Chromebooks are tuned for speed. I confirmed this today using Ookla’s Speedtest to test internet download speed on my Toshiba Chromebook — the result was an incredible 115Mbps internet download speed. I’m used to a much slower download speed, a range between 25-35Mbps when running Speedtest on my Nexus 6 smartphone, or my Dell Linux Mint PC.

Chromebook Internet Speed



Chromebooks run Chrome OS
, an operating system built from the ground up for the internet. Chrome OS is fast, cheap, simple, and secure. If you have used Google’s Chrome web browser, you will be right at home on a Chromebook, because Chrome OS looks and acts just like the Chrome web browser. Using a Chromebook, your computer will always be up to date — the latest security and feature releases are downloaded and installed automatically.

Google has partnered with companies like Toshiba, Acer, HP, Dell, Samsung, and ASUS to build inexpensive Chromebooks, generally priced $200-300. But, you can now get a Hisense Chromebook at Walmart for $150 — it’s a decent device, see Mashable’s So Cheap, But So Good review.

If you are wondering whether a Chromebook might be right for you, or as a gift for a friend or loved one, check out this very helpful article by JR Raphael, Is Chrome OS right for you? A 3-question quiz to find out.
