You will also get 100 GB cloud based Google Drive storage free for two years. As Chromebook is designed to update itself automatically, it won't get slower by time like the other computers.

Very bright (max brightness of 342cd/m2) and brilliant 11.6 inch 60% color gamut 300 nit IPS screen at 1366 x 768 pixel resolution with 16:9 aspect cinematic ratio offers very wide- 176 degree viewing angles.
