ChromeBooks

Chromebook is a laptop or tablet running the Linux-based Chrome OS as its operating system. Chromebooks are primarily used to perform a variety of tasks using the Google Chrome browser, with most applications and data residing in the cloud rather than on the machine itself.

By March 2018, Chromebooks made up 60% of computers purchased by schools in the United States. In April 2017, the Electronic Frontier Foundation accused Google of using Chromebooks to collect and data mine "school children's personal information, including their Internet searches", without their parents' consent, two years after EFF had filed a federal complaint against the company
