2021 is the year of the Chromebook: here’s why

For several years now, Chromebooks have slowly gained a pretty dedicated following as former skeptics became converts – and even prosthelytizers – of the lightweight Chrome OS and the highly affordable laptops it powers. Still, it hasn’t come close to challenging Microsoft or Apple – or even Linux – as the operating system of choice for the vast majority of consumers.

There are a whole host of reasons for this, not the least of which is Microsoft’s far-sighted strategy of licensing its operating systems to OEMs, which helped it capture over 95% of the PC market in the early to mid 1990s, a market position that has only slightly eroded due to the popularity of Apple’s competing OSX-powered laptops and desktops.
