Have you ever got a Chromebook, bro? The answer will depend on who you ask the question, but mostly Chromebooks are popular in the education segment, and not so much in the general market. Google hopes to change it, and in a new ad campaign, the company hilariously highlights why Chrome OS is superior to Windows 10 and MacOS.
"Built-in virus protection, a day-to-day battery and auto updates: Welcome to the new way to do things. Power, play and work without slowing down," Google says in the ad's description on YouTube.
They are solid bullet points, but nothing that would cause a freak. However, what is the ad that highlights the various errors that users may experience frustrating on a Windows PC or Mac. The video is a minute long and if you have PC error-related PTSD, This may put you above the top. A scene especially hit a bit too close to home around the halfway mark, Google shows a user trying to quit a bug file, just to be met with a blue screen for deaths.
We all have Been there, unfortunately. In my own experience, Windows 10 has been more reliable than previous versions of Windows, and while the forced updates may be annoying at times, it generally works well. But I'm not supposed to D these ad campaigns. In the ad, Google exaggerates humorous effects and ends up expanding the benefits of owning a Chromebook.
It does not matter how you feel about Chromebooks and Chrome OS in general, or even Google – the ad is fun. One thing that Google did not touch, however, is the price. The best selling laptop on Amazon right now is an Acer Chromebook 11 with a Celeron N3060 processor, 4GB RAM and 16GB of storage. It's a ho-hum setup, but at $ 159 it seems as if buyers are being fooled by the price.
Several other Chromebooks are among the top 10 sellers, including Samsung Chromebook 3 (No. 4), ASUS Chromebook C202SA-YS02 (No. 8), Google Pixelbook (No. 9), a second Acer Chromebook R11 Convertible .10). Save for Pixelbook, all the others are relatively affordable alternatives.
In any case, if you hold a score, it is Google 1, Microsoft and Apple 0. Game on.
