"For the Netizens"on by mjw149
Pros 1. Idiot-proof
Cons 1. Oh so limited
2. Gaming isn't quite there
Summary Love the OS part of our chromebook, typing this review on one now. Perfect if you don't want to do IT when you get home. A little too limited in some respects, even with gmail and gdocs, attachments aren't handled quite right and games aren't great, regardless of hardware. Of course it's a rough choice as a primary PC, too many places require IE still (like my job). The 100gb of cloud storage they're including now is a big step towards that, however. It's mostly music and photo storage keeping my wintel pc around, and I suspect that's true for most people.
Pros Buying a "GOOGLE Chrome Laptop" will lead to the loss of our WAY OF THINKING about privacy (NONE), individualism (NONE), and RIGHT to think and be INDEPENDENT.
Cons It's not REALLY a computer, it's a large ANDROID PHONE, with NO INTERNAL HARD-DRIVE for permanent local storage. The public (US) on a "cloud" has No safety net, we can all be altered, searched, seized, deleted, without say-so.
Summary It is really the wrong road, a very wrong road, to HELL on earth as far as "we as free citizens" on the internet goes.
