It is more common than ever to see Chromebooks dotting the desks, offices and libraries of schools around the country. These devices are changing the way students learn and teachers teach.

So if you’re looking for a school laptop that can run traditional offline programs, Office, Adobe, etc., the Chromebook is probably not your first choice.
