Apple’s Phil Schiller Trashes Chromebooks, Says They Won’t Help Kids Succeed

After announcing the 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple’s marketing head, Phil Schiller, spoke to a couple different outlets about the newest MacBook Pro model and the cutting-edge technologies it brings.

One conversation that draw our attention was with CNET, where Phil Schiller literally trashes Google’s Chromebook computers by saying that they’re not good for learning in the classroom and won’t help students succeed. As you can imagine, everyone is upset about this comment as Chromebooks are good and cheap notebooks used by numerous people around the world in classrooms and other environments.

“Kids who are really into learning and want to learn will have better success. It’s not hard to understand why kids aren’t engaged in a classroom without applying technology in a way that inspires them. You need to have these cutting-edge learning tools to help kids really achieve their best results. Yet Chromebooks don’t do that. Chromebooks have gotten to the classroom because, frankly, they’re cheap testing tools for required testing. If all you want to do is test kids, well, maybe a cheap notebook will do that. But they’re not going to succeed,” said Phil Schiller in the CNET interview.
