The models available initially will include the Acer Chromebook CB3-111 and C730.
The Acer Chromebook has had a strong South African presence in the education sector of the country, aimed at giving students, teachers and administrators a simple solution for fast and easy-to-manage computing.
Designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, the Chromebook uses the Google Chrome operating system to give users access to everything they need to be productive, stay in touch, and be informed. It is optimised to make use of all of the Chrome OS apps, such as Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Drive, all stored in the Google cloud ecosystem.
Multiple layers of security features, including data encryption and verified boot, defend the device against online threats, malware and viruses. Checking the integrity and validity of system files every time the device boots up, the Chromebook detects any anomaly or unauthorised change. System files are stored on separate partitions that keep data secure and make restoration from a backup simple.
