Both Windows and Apple allow executable programs to be downloaded and installed. Chromebook does not since there is no place to load a executable program. Also, Chromebook checks the current operating system against a "key" and if it does not match, it loads a prior version while downloading the latest version - all without you knowing it.

You can load files for "offline" use such as documents, spreadsheets, Kindle books, PDFs, music and videos. The battery lasts for 8-10 hours. If the internet is down (something that happens from time to time here in The Villages) I use my phone as a "hotspot" to connect to the internet. I had to do that a few weeks ago when the power went out in Country Club Hills.
