- That's something I also thought about. But in my opinion, stuff like personal photos and videos should alsways be saved on - at least one - external HDD. This HDD can also be used with Chrome OS, can't it? But you will have to upload them if you want to edit photo's I guess.
The ChromeBook won't be a replacement for every PC, but e.g. my parents are only using the PC to check their mails and use facebook. A ChromeBook would be perfect for them!
The lack of "real" client side software isn't such a big disadvantage, but there has to be some kind of "offline mode" where you can use app's like Google Drive.Dec 4, 2012
- Most of us do the same, connect with friends & family. The cloud has been home for my 'stuff' since its inception. I do keep my important things on a drive, however. Once you use Chrome & the family of Google tools it's hard to get excited about anything Windows.Dec 4, 2012
- Yes I know that I agree on exactly but with all the USB ports on this, you can grab a real nice flash drive pretty cheap. I seen 64GB for 34 dollars around that price anyway. Thanks for your commentDec 4, 2012
- It is all about use cases... for most people a chromebook is all what they need (I am seriously considering one as a xmas present for my mum it would remove most of the "support calls" - no viruses, no lost data, no computer playing up). For some people like me (software development), photoshoppers, cad etc is definitely not enough - even if i dread taking my laptop with me while travelling and I can definitely use one - but only as long as I can Bluetooth tether with my phone!Dec 4, 2012
- Exactly. I would never use one of these Chromebooks. I just can't work on them. And for home on my couch, a tablet is perfect.Dec 5, 2012
- you could use you're desktop trough a chromebook with chrome remote desktop. I know i do occasionaly.. but well i rarely power up my computer nowadays, my chromebook cover all my need except gaming :)Dec 21, 2012
