It is pretty easy to get lost in all this Chrome OS news on a daily basis and forget the large number of users who may be sitting in front of a Chromebook for the very first time today. After a few years of researching, reviewing and writing about Chromebooks, it becomes very tempting to just assume everyone knows what they are getting into when a new Chromebook arrives.
But, as we all know, that simply isn’t the case. So, if you are a Chromebook ninja or a regular reader of Chrome Unboxed, this post and video may not exactly be down your lane. Sure, there may be something in here you haven’t encountered, but the chances are slim that any of this will be news to you.
