The Chromebook market is one which has been booming of late. The combining of performance with affordability is naturally a balance which has attracted a number of converts who would rather not shell out significantly more for a more traditional laptop or desktop option. One sector in particular, which has seen massive growth in Chromebook adoption is the education sector. Thanks to the affordability offered, both institutions and students alike see the balance in what Chrome OS running devices offers as an attractive one. Well, adding another option to the education Chromebook market is CTL. The company already have a number of options on the market which are designed for the education sector, like the recently released NL6 Chromebook.
