Google now goes for the desktop manufacturers to make their systems run on Chrome OS, However aren’t successful in convincing them

Google doesn’t seem to be quite happy only with the netbooks running in Chrome OS which are also known as the Chromebooks. Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, recently shared the benefits of having Chrome OS- powered desktop to the PC manufacturers in Taiwan.

But it seems that, the PC manufacturers aren’t entertained enough, by this idea. This might be because of lack of demand of the Chromebooks in the market, although it has some added features such as boot up time and also no viruses.

It might be at the back of their minds as no one is eager in buying the Chromebooks then who will buy the PC desktops with Chrome OS. The Chrome book also has a unique feature of Chrome OS, the cloud integration – because everything gets saved online. This feature lets you continue with your work even if your current Chromebook gets destroyed.

This plus point of the Chromebook can also be taken as a major disadvantage for places with low speed internet connectivity. This might be the major cause for its low sale rate as peoples would definitely like to use a less internet dependent netbook.
