3 responses to “Living With a Chromebook”

    When discussing Chromebooks it’s important to keep in mind that they are not meant to replace laptops. They are not meant to be for every type of user. Like with many things in technology (as in life), not everything is meant for everyone.

    Chromebooks are meant for users that spend most of their time in a browser and want a device that’s easy to use and starts up fast. Sounds to me like that profile fits quite a few people.

    That being said, not everyone is willing or able to give up on their Windows applications. But there are solutions to overcome that obstacle. For example, Ericom AccessNow is an HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to securely connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run their applications and desktops in a browser.

    AccessNow does not require any client to be installed on the Chromebook, as you only need the HTML5-compatible browser.

    I have owned a google pixel for about 3 months now. Before that I owned just about every type of computer from Apple to Windows. Never have I had a more pleasurable, efficient, computing experience that with my pixel. The learning curve was a bit steep in the beginning but the Chromebook “ninja” live person support was excellent. The concept of resident software and all the clutter and expense it brings is Neanderthal when compared with the quick, effortless, experience of cloud computing. The pixel is the future and it is a laptop for virtually everyone except for those heavy duty professionals that require specialized resident software to do their job. From the beautiful screen to the first class keyboard, and the jewel like craftsmanship of the aluminum case, the pixel is a class act from start to finish. Those who say otherwise are like the old generals who suit up to fight the last war.
