Do I need a Google account?

A Google account is not required for using a Chromebook, but it does allow you to use the Chromebook more efficiently!  By logging into the Chrome browser with a Google account, you will gain access to everything in your account including the Google productivity apps.  Work opened or edited in the Google productivity apps will be automatically saved to your Google Drive, so you will have access to your files each time you log into your Google account from any computer.
