Calling Windows 10 Cloudbooks "Chromebook Killers" is like calling a VW Bus a "Rally Car Killer"; they're different products with varying experiences.

10 days ago I paid around $300 for the Acer Chromebook13 (4GB/32GB w/ARM processor). I'm a Win 10/Linux/ChromeOS user with iOS phones.

I prefer the Chromebook for most of what I do (Browsing, Email, Social, and minor doc editing. But for Editing HTML and text, remote terminal and VNC operations, my Linux desktops and laptops are more versatile and easy to use. (BTW, with the ARM processor, installing Linux on the Acer Chromebook13 may compromise its intended performance with ChromeOS, or simply won't work. I will not attempt it. Chromebooks with Intel chips are said to fare better.) 

Linux is fast and extremely versatile, does multitasking and server duty well too. I prefer it on my desktops. (Lubuntu Linux works well on old "XP" era Laptops.)

I find Windows 10 to be very good, doing many traditional functions well and with more software choices for certain specialized technical purposes. 

My Acer Chromebook13 is very fast with killer battery life (10 Hrs minimum, depending on how I'm using it.) There's no fan, almost zero heat, virtually instant boot-up. There are enough syncing methods now that all my machines and phones have access to the same docs, mail, apps, and bookmarks.  

Bottom line, all of my machines have their respective pros and minor cons, but I will NOT give up my Chromebook. It's a winner.

It would be nice to know what was different before and after you got your Chromebook. Hence the question: How has Chromebook changed your life?

+Srinivas Shastri Same but opposite for me. Started out over a year ago with an Asus Chromebox which now sports two monitors and 8 GB of RAM. A few months later my work purchased us a couple Chromebooks and a couple more Asus Chromeboxes. I got one of the latter and using the two of them at home and work has been a great experience.

I haven't booted Windows up in months and only fire up my Linux box to use Google Earth, rip an increasingly rare dvd to mp4, or just play around with it. But even most of the things I do in Google Earth I can now do in Google Maps and a couple other webapps like CalTopo.

I'm so hooked on Chrome OS now that I also just bought an Acer c720 Chromebook (at a great price!) with the i3 processor, 4 GB RAM, and 32 GB hard drive.

Combined with Android, and a Chromecast in the tv, I can do all I need to and with none of the frustration that I frequently encountered with Windows.
