ChromeBooks offer sandboxing, which some experts say make them safer
I don’t know if there is some partnership between Vox and Google behind this story. But Vox Creative has a story on how the Google Chromebook runs every application in its own Sandbox. That means malware from a website can’t infect anything else on the machine.
This could mean that the Chromebook is a good choice for travel, especially long air trips, maybe overseas.
I don’t know how this compares to up-to-date security on modern Windows 10 or Macbook laptops. There are opposing viewpoints on YouTube.
I don’t know if the current concerns about chip security matter here.
