Chromebook VS Laptop

The biggest difference between other laptops and Chromebooks is that while others will ship with Windows and Macintosh, Chromebooks only ship with Chrome OS.

There are some hardware differences that seem consistent across Chromebooks as well. Firstly, Chromebooks seem to only ship with Solid State Drives, where other flavors of devices ship with whatever they want to stuff in there.
