The Health Sciences Library has made available an 11” model of the latest Google Chromebook! The new Chromebook is built by HP, has an 11” high-res screen, and weighs all of 2.3 pounds. What browser does the laptop have? Chrome, naturally.

What word processing does it have? Google Docs. This device is all about the Google ecosystem.

You will need a free Gmail account to log in to the device and explore. If you don’t have one, you can create one right on the laptop. But be warned: Chromebooks depend very much on wireless connectivity. If using it in the library, you’ll need to connect to the GUEST wireless network.

The Chromebook is available on first come, first served basis from the HSL Service Desk for two day checkout to all primary patrons .
