One would think that low-end and non gaming computers wouldn't really be on the rise but that is not so. Chromebooks are increasing in popularity and are selling quite well. Included on these machines is the Chrome OS, which is linux based and has the Chrome browser as it’s main user interface.
Chrome OS, a version of Linux that uses the Chrome Web browser for its main interface, and its main hardware platform, Chromebooks, are actually the one segment of the dying PC market that have actually been growing, according to Stephen Baker, VP of Industry Analysis for Consumer Technology for retail analysis group, NPD Group.
