Chromebooks are primarily designed to be used while connected to the Internet---- that's why those laptops are placed in education , and of course they will like one at home he he he
There are two real problems with the Chromebooks: the off-line (non)functionality and the speed for certain apps. Both could be resolved by using a very simple approach: allowing native applications, managed by or within Chrome tabs, verified by Google before reaching the WebStore. The management within tabs means independent process(es), while the native code means speed. I guess...
Well the chromebook idea is a good one. They just need to improve a few things like JOliver said.
It's good that Google are finally placing these books where they should have been first placed. The chromebook was always going to be a hard sell for the consumer who are used to having domestic storage in addition to cloud storage. Corporations and schools are different as the users there are more comfortable with the idea of non-local storage of info.
when you first release a product it comes with some goods and a lot of cons.So hope that they will make some improvements and add more features later.Don't just think cuz a well-known company releases a product it won't bring cons.
Yeah they really have limited usage scenarios, but do seem pretty cool for schools.
I agree with you Ray. The Chomebook seems to have a found a nice home in the school system.
It'll be interesting to see how this Chromebook thing will go, will it be a sucess or a failure.
The move to education is pretty smart...
