There’s a lot of selling points for a Chromebook, especially if you’re someone for whom the browser is the main business tool. The battery life is really impressive, the boot-time is almost unnoticeable, and they’re pretty close to the weight and form factor of the much-revered MacBook Air. But if you appreciate light, versatile, and airport/train usability, you’re also in need of mobile web connections. And the U.S. just hasn’t arrived at attractive options for reliable and affordable Wi-Fi or cellular web access wherever you go. You can pay (or get your office to pay) for something like 20 GB of connectivity per month and not worry, or you can distract yourself wondering if your document changes made it through. Nobody wants to pay a premium on lesser hardware for that privilege.
That’s all I got. Do you like your netbook, and hope a better version of it is available to buy when it’s time for a replacement? Are you happily toting a tablet and occasional extra keyboard? What’s your in-between computing solution, in general?
