Chromebooks make sense for schools, as they are easy to use and easy to manage. And Chromebooks boot up fast, so students don't have to wait for halfway through class for their laptop to be ready.

One issue is that many web-based education applications need Java, which Chromebooks do not support. And some schools may still be running Windows application.

That means that you can open up an Internet Explorer session inside a Chrome browser tab, and then connect to the applications that require Java and run them on the Chromebook.
