After Bashing PCs, Apple Chief Now Goes On To Call Chromebooks “Test Machines”

Is Tim Cook too drunk on Apple Kool-Aid?

Chromebooks, as we all know it, provide an affordable solution for those in the education sector, be it for students and school staff. While they aren't exactly what you'd call well-rounded as compared with full-fledged laptops, they can still become a feature-packed productivity tool to those looking for one. Hey, we really do prefer PCs and laptops, but we still see the use of Chromebooks.

Of course, Google's efforts have brought Chromebooks to more and more schools in the United States, and the search engine giant is expecting more schools to have them by the end of the year. In all honesty, given the budget, I could settle for one if all I need is a documentation-tool-slash-multimedia-hub.

However, Apple CEO Tim Cook just wants to rain on everyone's parade and goes on to label Chromebooks as “test machines” according to BuzzFeed News. “Assessments don't create learning,” said Cook in the interview, calling Mountain View's affordable laptops as simply “test machines.”

“We are interested in helping students learn and teachers teach, but tests, no,” Cook said. “We create products that are whole solutions for people — that allow kids to learn how to create and engage on a different level.” Two things here, actually – first, an iPad is an easy pick for kids 12 below (if my age assumption is right), and what the heck is a Chromebook. Second case, I shudder to think how one can use an iPad for productivity, good luck on multitasking and typing on that one.

The iPad, at the moment and even in the near future, is yet to be considered 'essential.' Sure, for kindergartens and toddlers, educational apps and nursery rhymes are cool. And yes, we can even consider it as an eBook reader as well if that's your case. But as a progressing student, you'll have to immerse yourself in the sea of information that's scattered across the interwebs. Furthermore, you'll have to use documentation tools and other apps for education. And Google does away pretty good at it with their programs such as Docs, Calendar and Gmail. And yeah, let's not forgot how seamless it works with their search engine.

And let's not forget how expensive it is to own an iPad, even more so for MacBooks if you want to go full swing. We'll argue that there are a handful of code editing apps for the iPad, but then again, coding isn't what you really want to do with an iPad, even with a Bluetooth keyboard in tow.

TL;DR, iPads, or any products from Apple, are just as expensive as heck, so it's not what you can really call as a viable solution for students in today's world. Chromebooks have taken over in the education sector, and Apple has to face it.
