They are overpriced and COS is horrible. Tablets like the iPad mini with a keyboard case is far better and potentially cheaper.

Is it possible to install Windows OS on a Chromebook or can it boot to Windows using an external SSD or HDD?

When I was in middle school we used Chromebooks in our English class. My teacher always said that they had NO storage and NO processor. I should have just left it alone, but I tried to correct her in front of the class, and I got in trouble for "being disrespectful".

I'm watching this on a chromebook, and he forgot so mention speed. Chromebooks actually are faster than most low to mid-range laptops even if the Windows laptop has Chrome installed.

I still don't see the advantage of a Chromebook over just getting an Android tablet and a keyboard for it. A Chromebook isn't really much more than just a tablet with a keyboard.

Chrome OS is literally uses the chrome browser to run everything, as if you try and kill the browser, it crashes the ENTIRE device sending you back to the login prompt.

Since Chromebooks can run Android apps, you could just use the Android Skype app for video conferencing.

I like the simplicity of Chromebooks. Quick access to a "desktop" browser when ever I need it. I already got a desktop for all my windows needs. Props to Google for designing these Linux like laptops.

I don't like the way things are heading. all kinds of stuff is now being offloaded to online servers. I want to be able to just build a really good pc than have it offload to another place.

Running crouton linux on my chrome book with a couple of necessary apps and using Google for the rest is fantastic for my situation as a student who plays with robotics and software development as a hobby I recommend it for that sort of thing but a real computer is necessary for most everything else.
Firewolf4412 (9 months ago)
Damn, does the chrome book have a good Linux command line? Or just a GUI with hidden command line?

Jimmy Jimmy (10 months ago)
Chromebooks suck Here's why: Can't run normal applications Can't use any browser except chrome Can't sign in or even use the os without wifi Can't sign in or even use the os without google account. (applies to people using something else like aol or yahoo) Most importantly, the command line interface is built into the web browser instead of the kernel (stupid idea) making the os far less useful than windows or Linux which have their command line interface in the kernel. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then type cmd into your windows run application (win+r) and hit enter in windows or search for terminal in linux and you will see a black window with letters prompting you for commands. That is the command line interface. Also they call the command line of Chromeos "Chrosh" or "Chrome Shell". This name is misleading because it is not a shell if it does not directly control the kernel of the os.

Every os is based on Linux
