Chromebooks are different from traditional laptops or desktop computers. A Chromebook allows you to access the Internet to browse the web and to use most web-based applications. You cannot install programs on a Chromebook.
Your Chromebook will have the following features:
- Touch screen
- Two USB ports
- Micro SD Card Reader
- Headphone/Microphone combo jack
Power button is typically located:
- On the right side of the device, next to the USB port or
- On the upper-right of the keyboard.
