Please note that in order to take full advantage of Chrome OS, you will need to be connected to the Internet.

Chrome OS

Using Linux as a base, Google designed Chrome OS to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, which greatly resembles the Google Chrome web browser. Chrome OS was built for people who spend a majority, if not all, of their time on the computer connected to the Internet. The only application that comes installed on Chrome OS is a special Google Chrome web browser with an integrated media player and file manager. All other applications are accessed by adding apps from the Google Chrome Web Store. Since Chrome OS relies entirely on Google's web apps and access to Google's services, it is highly recommended that you connect to the Internet to optimize your Chrome OS experience.

Google Play

In addition to Chrome OS, this Chromebook supports Google Play apps, so you can access all your favorite Android work, play, or creative apps as needed.

180° Hinge

The 180° hinge on the Chromebook C523 lets you lay it completely flat for an easier time sharing onscreen content with others. It's also been tested with over 20,000 open-and-close cycles to ensure long-term reliability.

Sound

Built with dual stereo speakers, the Chromebook C523 can deliver surround-sound effects and crisp, powerful sound for an immersive listening experience.

Battery

To keep up with your busy day-to-day life, the Chromebook C523 is designed to last for up to 10 hours on a single charge. Please note that battery life will vary depending on use.

USB Type-C

The two USB Type-C ports on the Chromebook C523 adhere to USB 3.1 Gen 1 standards, capable of transferring data at up to 5 Gb/s, delivering power, and even connecting displays via DP Alt mode.

My kid complaints the chromebook is slow. The glass screen was cracked after she returned home from school. I found the glass of this touchscreen chromebook is easy to be cracked.

Purchased this Chromebook Laptop 3 weeks ago. Have used daily and have had no problems. I have used Windows and Apple Macintosh computers for years and find this laptop compatible. Easy to use and it updates the Crome OS automatically. The Google App Store as a app for almost anything you need. I highly recommend this laptop that was awarded PC Magazines Editor Choice.

What is the expiration date on this Chromebook? It is intended to replace a Chromebook that no longer will install new software

Please review here: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=en%20https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/9367166?hl=en#zippy=%2Casus Since the OS is running from the Cloud, security update is not a concern since the Cloud Storage gets their security updates periodically. Without an OS update, the unit will still work properly.
