Chromebook shoppers also enjoy more flexibility when selecting the color of their laptop.

About These Machines
Thin clients, sometimes referred to as lean clients, are inexpensive computers that are centrally managed. These machines do not have CD drives or expansion slots. The benefit of this type of computer is that without those extra features it is less costly and more secure. There is also less work required in backing them up. A lot of companies and schools have made the transition and prefer them over traditional machines.
Chromebooks work very well as thin client laptops, and they are easier for students and employees to use because they don’t become outdated. When these computers need an update, they do it on their own without user involvement. Chromebooks have been used as thin clients in businesses and schools of all sizes with great success.
