That's less true that you might expect. A lot of Chrome Apps and Google Apps run offline these days.

Re: Video? Meh.
I'm not super excited by video meetings. Audio is efficient for most meetings. I'd be more excited by some effective and lightweight screenshare or presentation tools.

About Chromebooks
I was looking into buying a Chromebook last week. I thought that it was an impressive device, but the one thing that isn't well pointed out about it is that you can't readily install software the Chromebook, and that you depend completely on cloud-based applications that you access via the Chrome Browser. With SO MUCH available on the cloud these days, including Google Apps and Open Office, that's not as much of a disadvantage as you might at first think. But, if you temporarily don't have an internet connection, the device is nothing but a paperweight until you're reconnected.

Chromebooks and Education
Why wouldn't you want to use a Chromebook in an education setting? I don't see the downside.

Video? Meh.
Am I the only one who dislikes video conferences? I'd pay for a Google Chromebox that prevents meetings...
