The laptops are really different from the Chromebooks in a variety of ways and we are not talking about their software.
One of the most obvious differences of the Chromebooks from the traditional laptops is the keyboards of the Chromebooks which have their own different Chrome-OS functions. This means that a Chromebook does not have the standard keys such as the Caps Lock or the F1. Depending on the type of work a user needs to do on their Chromebook, this change can be really great.
