Chromebookworld is a website on the Carrypad network.

At Chromebookworld we cover ChromeOS-based Chromebooks.  Chromebooks are an emerging cloud-based laptop where simplicity, cost of ownerership and security are the main advantages. These laptops are being used more and more in business and education and becoming a popular choice amongst consumers that want an easy ‘go-to’ laptop for the basic usages around the home and office.

We have every Chromebook in a database.

We focus a lot of time on databasing every Chromebook on the market. Our product information pages are second to none on the web and give you a chance to review many aspects of a device, from many sources, before buying. Before you buy, take a look at these two pages that cover the pro’s and con’s of a Chromebook.
