I know an Oklahoma lawyer who doesn’t understand why so many lawyers use high-powered computers. He and his staff use Chromebooks. That just wouldn’t work for me. I’m a heavy multitasker that uses speech recognition and other resource hogging tools.

But for law firms who need to send staff to work from home, it is a wise and security conscious decision to send them home with a law firm laptop rather than having them use a home computer and if finances are tight, Chromebooks are very inexpensive. But before you make that decision, you need to understand what Chromebooks are and what they are not.

Therefore unless you are very familiar with Chromebooks, your attention is directed to 5 Pros and Cons of Using a Chromebook.
