Back to Uni? Add a Chromebook to your reading list

Need a laptop that can keep up with you at Uni? Look no further than Google Chromebook. It’s fast, always up to date, and has the might of Google behind it.

Getting started

When you’re ready to get down to business, just log in with your Google account and you’re ready to go. You don’t need to spend hours configuring and waiting for things to load. A Chromebook starts fast and stays fast, so it’ll be just as fresh on the first day of Uni as the last – even though you probably won’t be.

Plus, it’s a master of multi-tasking.

Downloading your course reading, listening to a Spotify playlist, checking in on Facebook and chatting to your mates on Skype at the same time? No problem.

Why not try…

The ACER 14 Chromebook has everything covered. There’s a 12-hour battery life for working away from your room, two USB ports and an HDMI connection to connect to your TV, plus 32GB of offline storage.

Whatever you’re streaming, downloading or sharing, it’ll be done at top speed with AC Wi-Fi.

Log in and take off

Once you’re logged in to your Google account, your Chromebook syncs to your Android phone and tablet, so you can access your stuff on any device, wherever you are. Make notes on your phone while you’re on the bus to lectures, then turn these into an essay when you get back to your laptop.

You’ve got the best access to the best of Google. Including Gmail, Maps and Docs.

Unlike normal laptops, a Chromebook stores all your files and photos in the cloud. That means it’s impossible to lose invaluable work and photos if your laptop is stolen or gets broken.

There’s tonnes of space up in the cloud, so don’t worry about running out of space or spending hours backing up your files.

No more annoying update reminders

You know those irritating updates that interrupt every couple of months? A Chromebook doesn’t have them. A Chromebook automatically updates itself, so it always has the latest virus protection, as well as apps and features.

By continually updating, adding protection and getting rid of older features, your Chromebook will never slow down.
