Seems like the right place to ask the following question....
I need a lightweight productivity device that will allow me access to windblows office apps. I'm torn between the pixel c and a chrome book...HP13G1 maybe. I also need a device that allows smart card readers and while ChromeOS developers are 90% of the way there, there is purchased software $70/year that I can use on android.

+Jamie Preder No. I don't pay, but I very rarely have to deal with any type of complex formatting, etc.

I know that there is an app (VmWare Horizon Client) for use on a chromebook, but I am wondering if anyone knows if VMWare is adapting the application using recently released ChromeOS API to allow the use of a military CAC?

Between these two posts I was able to get my CAC reader working, and even log into the af portal. I recommend coolcac over cackey, the latter did some funky stuff trying to send my certs before it even loaded the web page. Which, obviously, the portal did not appreciate. Good luck!

It's not just government and military. I have access to a corporate bank account which requires a smart card (and Internet Explorer).

Wondering if there is anyone who can help. Had MS power query working till corporate pushed a new patch. The IT gurus went into my registry and did some adjustments to get it to work and we went into options to enable it. Although it is showing as active, it doesnt display on the ribbon. Can anyone help.

Nope. Don't think you understand. This is an COM add-on that adds another tab to the top toolbar that contains another full ribbon of options. However, the tab doesnt show--even though it is active.

Have a chromebook or running chromeOS and struggling to get military CAC card access? We are almost there. The link below details how Google has finally come around to building API that supports CAC card access. It has taken some time for this to move to the top of the development list as evidenced by the log, but they are finally getting there.

Crouton up and working with Ubuntu Trusty. Now if only I could find someone who had a link to a complete list of instructions on how to get a cac reader working....MilitaryCac.com is extremely outdated, links to software on multiple sites outdated and nothing seems to want to install through the ubuntu software center. Any ideas???

Thanks. I will double check the forums. I also have an intel based processor. Continue to avoid ARM for just those issues.

 Haha, hope you didn't misunderstand me! I didn't meant to infer you wouldn't know what a boot disk was, I meant that you wouldn't be carrying it with you if you were travelling! Certainly my boot disk never leaves my drawer after installation :-)

If you are in the military, and own a CB, please go to the link below and voice your need for CAC access through chrome. This issue was first sited in other issues as far back as 2010 and they have still not found a fix.
