    Schools using ChromeBooks

    Hi

    Wanted some info about what Chromebooks are like in schools from an end users point of view.

    We are looking at replacing our 60 Dell laptops which are 7 years old and struggling.

    What are the benifits of Chromebooks and the disavantages?

    Thanks in advance

    Advantages : Quick to boot, lightweight "does-what-it-says-on-the-tin" functionality, good, simple collaborative platform. Available documentation is generally good.

    Disadvantages : Too simple for some, somewhat "bleeding edge" as an enterprise system (possibly more problematic if you need to phase a change rather than do a big bang), management tools are slightly beyond infancy but quite some distance short of mature. Involves selling of soul (or at least your personal data) to google. Integration into existing directory (AD or other LDAP) is ... time consuming.

    Motto : Plan. Test. Plan and test again.
