Simple, fast, reliable, user-friendly, safe, cheap and never slows down – these are all the terms used to describe the Chromebook. Do you have an older laptop that suffers from poor performance? If what you want is to accomplish is accessing the internet, email, word processing, spreadsheet and social networking sites such as Facebook, there is an alternative to buying a new computer. You can convert an old or poor performing laptop to a Chromebook, returning it to the response times of when it was new and do this FOR FREE. Bring your laptop to class and we will show you how to convert it to a Chromebook.

  • Would you like your boot up time to be measured in seconds rather than minutes?
  • Have instantaneous shutdown?

  • Never have to worry about viruses again?
  • Never update your software again?
  • Never have to worry about backing up files?

Sounds too good to be true? Wait, there’s more. You may have a Chromebook already. That old laptop that no longer can support today’s Windows and Windows Applications. It runs too slow to be useful.
