Google promises an updated experience with their Chrome OS computers

Google recently released a set of laptops and PCs that run on Google Chrome Operating system. These systems are chrome based and run their applications through Chrome and store their data online. Google came out and told the World that this is the next big step in computing and this is the future. But there was criticism that these models were underpowered.

Google has announced that the software updates has made the computers much faster. They now run about three times faster.  The updates will also enhance the Graphic Processing Units (GPU) and JavaScript. What makes these computers more desirable is that Google is coming up with a Google Drive cloud storage device. This will not only make maintaining documents easier but will also enable the users to manage their documents even when they are not online. When the internet connection is back on, the files will automatically get synchronized. This could be in response to the criticism regarding the limited use of these computers when the users were not online.

Google says – the strong points of these computers are that these computers need virtually no administration as the user files are all stored in the cloud, Google takes care of the system updates and there is built-in protection against virus.

Google’s Vice President of Engineering said that Chrome books are the best way to protect user data. He said major corporations are constantly under data theft threat and companies need to secure their employees’ computers as they are the usual way in. “Everything from a phishing email saying ‘hey install this thing’ to exploiting flaws in browsers or plug-ins. At Google we see deploying Chromebooks broadly as being one of the best ways we can protect our user data.”

Though, the computers fail if the users want to install regular software like Photoshop or Microsoft office. But Google says that this will not be an issue when users use the browser based software that are available in the Chrome WebStore.

These computers have received mixed feelings from the market. Experts point out that Chromebooks don’t have the power of a laptop or the appeal of a tablet. But it is cheaper and easier to figure out when compared to the other technology out in the market.

For now, these computers will be sold only in UK and the US.
