re: Chromebook Pixel: My First Week Living In Cloud
Your Windows notebook can't do Zero Maintenance, Zero Touch Administration, sub 10 sec boot especially with a networked domain authenticated system, it can't do instant sleep and resume etc.
There is one other major deficiency in your Windows notebook - you have to carry it with you everywhere in order to be able to access all your data and applications. With a Chromebook, you can access your complete environment - data, apps, settings and preferences from any device with a browser - your office PC, your home Macbook, your smartphone, your tablet, even a netcafe if you have no device with you at all. Of course you can do that with a Chrome browser installed on your Windows laptop as well - one of Chromebooks strengths - but only if you use it in pure Chromebook mode. But then why would you do that since you would be stuck with hot, heavy, noisy, short battery life, expensive, high maintenance, insecure, Windows?
