    Any hp brand printer with eprint allows you print without the a host computer being on. You can print right from the Chromebook.

    Printing I think is a bit problematic for linux in general, just in terms of manufacturer / drivers. Perhaps this is why chromebook has limited printing off usb direct?? I wonder if your brand of camera has a linux driver issue too (pure guess). I think that printing issues and lack of onboard word processing will limit chromebook takeup. Google should address these issues as well as it can! I love the chromebook idea, which seems to me to be to just have the right amount of computer for the job. I very nearly bought one but the price hike in Australia was just pure ridiculous when I was in the market for a new IT device – got an Android instead, with which I’m very happy now.

    Chromebooks make sense for users that spend most of their time on the web, as a 2nd family computer, in schools, etc. But what if you want to do some work from home, and your company uses Windows applications (like MS Office)?

    You can use a product like Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP solution that enables Chromebook users to connect to Terminal Servers and/or VDI virtual desktops, and run Windows applications or desktops in a browser tab.

    There’s nothing to install on the Chromebook – just connect to a URL and enter your login name and password.

    For an online, interactive demo, open your Chrome browser and visit:
