    Tbh I do see the use for those, for example a number of people use them at my workplace. I'm a real estate agent and most of the things we do run though a web based system, so we don't really need any specific apps and for documents we can just use the Google suite. I understand where Linus is coming from, as I myself work with a Mac and wouldn't change that for a Chromebook in a million years, but I do have to point out that it is a product that can be successful in "regular" users per say

    Why Chromebooks: - No maintenance. - Almost impossible to get it infected with a virus even if you do stupid stuff like everyone does. - Outside of running Chrome it runs Android, Linux apps, and even some Windows apps. - It has great integration with Android phones (auto hot spot, notifications, sign in, send tabs...) Not saying that there aren't cons for some people, which is usually mostly learning something different. One example is PC gaming were you can switch to Stadia and such. Will it be the same? No. Will it be as powerful for your 4K game at max resolution? No. It'll however work well and fine without maintenance. I think that's the main advantage.

    I thought the whole idea of chromebooks was to bring a decent internet (i.e. no piss-ant mobile screens) experience using lower powered, cheaper hardware. If one needs an i7 etc to do justice to the 'net, then why not just load a full copy of Windows (or Mac OS, or full Linux) The price difference between these high end chromebooks and a proper laptop/computer is in many cases all but non-existent, so why bother? Or is the problem that chromeos has become so bloated that the only way to use it is brute force and ignorance - I think Google has lost the plot on this one. Using a chromebook to access a server hosted copy of Windows has it's uses, but to run a VM on a 'terminal' - which is what I thought they were basically trying to achieve with chromeos, is crazy. It's a pity no one else - like say Mozilla, did their spin on a chromebook. (I thought they were, but it turned out to be a weird phone OS)

    Love Chromebooks for years. Most of the time I am sitting on my Desktop PC. When I am on my way I am using my Chromebook. Why? Because I can do mostly everything I need (programming) and I do not have to manage anything on the computer (Install updates etc.) It just works and runs fast.

    8:30 If Google can penetrate the thick hide of W10, for running games, that's that. The thing is, older games which I still play don't need that much power. It's about compatibility.

    Ok then, running the W10 on a Chromebook, but can you play games under the VM-W10 ? Simple concept, I use W10 so I can play my MS-based software. If it can't do that, useless. (And no, I don't wanna drop in at half or worse framerates.)

If you only work on the web then a Chromebook is for you, plain and simple. Hell the fact that you're reviewing a Chromebook is crime. Leave this for the Chromebook channels. If you want windows then get an actual windows laptop period end of discussion.

    Chromebooks are evil. They are TERRIBLE for schools because they allow kids to use a computer for school work without exposing kids to how a computer actually works. Google wants to condition an entire generation to believe that locked bootloaders are normal and acceptable. They want kids to believe a computer is actually nothing more than a matrix of paid services.

    you will find that the boom in chromebook sales are thanks to governments providing devices to students during lockdowns, usually government/ local authorities buy them and lease them to schools. Bare in mind though that these devices DO NOT belong to the student they will inevitably be called back by the local authorities that provided them, no doubt these will mostly end up as E waste. Many will be password protected making resetting them for data protection reasons very difficult, many will no doubt be destroyed for health and safety reasons too as decontaminating every single chromebook return would not be feasable.

    I was hoping we see google develop their own ARM chips and run linux+windows apps like Apple and Rosetta 2. Actually the thing stopping me from a chromebook is that if only their 64-bit ARM chips supported x64 linux apps. The price is attractive though. I didn't expect the crazy keyboard and touchpad though.
