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

People tend to put a lot of thought into these upgrades, and some even use them as part of the purchase decision process: the longer the lifespan, the better the Chromebook will be.
