If you buy a new Chromebook you can expect about eight years of automatic software updates. These happen in the background and are applied when you start your Chromebook up. You might not even know they are happening, but they are.

Folks tend to place a lot of weight on these updates, and some even use them as part of the buying decision process – the longer the lifespan, the better the Chromebook.
