Overview

This kit comes with both a Chromebook and a hotspot. Enabling you to get online with a device at home.

A Chromebook is portable computer that is optimized for internet use. These machines are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and documents living in the cloud. 

A mobile hotspot can be used anywhere* to get a wireless signal and connect any Wi-Fi enabled mobile device, laptop computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. to the Internet. *A strong cellular signal is needed. The hotspot in this kit uses the T-Mobile network.

With a checkout, you have the option of logging in as a guest user or with a Google Account. As a Guest user, you will have access to the Chrome browser anc can do anything you can do online. You have to save files to either a USB drive or your selected cloud storage solution.With a Google Account, you will be able to do more, like install apps through the Google Play Store, save things to your Google Drive and many other features.  If you do not have a Google Account, you can login as a Guest User, create a Google Account, then use it to login to the Chromebook.

This Kit comes with a Getting Started Guide.  Please refer to it for help setting up the Chromebook for your use.

Note

Between each checkout, Chromebook user profiles are wiped so that the Chromebook retains no memory of your login or information. This is for your privacy, but also means that your files will be deleted. Please ensure you save them to a USB drive or your selected cloud storage solution.
