Chromebook top-selling device among laptops, tablets

Google is proud of the progress it has made with Chromebook, especially in the education space. Noting that Chromebook has been a big hit in schools, Google bragged that the latest IDC numbers show that Chromebook is the best-selling device for education in the U.S. among laptops and tablets, with adoption rates still to increase with more institutional purchases from school districts.

In a blog post, Google tells us how useful and popular its Chrome OS devices are:

Schools tell us that Chromebooks fill three big needs: they're easy for students and teachers to use, they're easy to share, and they're easy to manage. That's critical for schools that often want to give their students the best technology, but don't have a large IT department to support it. And it's part of what has made Chromebooks such a hit in schools. In fact, according to IDC's latest report on tablets and laptops in K-12 education, Chromebooks are the best-selling device in the U.S. this year. And they're continuing to grow in popularity—in districts like Montgomery County, MD (more than 50,000 devices), Charlotte-Mecklenberg, NC (32,000 devices) and Cherry Creek, CO (26,000 devices), who have all begun using Chromebooks in 2014.
