After working on a Chromebook for a few months, I have found it to be a very useful tool. The long battery life is still a point that I marvel at… I have been working all day, and still have six hours battery left… Amazing!!!
The drawbacks of not having an internet connection are not as bad as I first thought, with strong Wi-Fi available at most places where I would sit down and work. For those places that do not have a strong Wi-Fi signal, or no internet connection at all, there is always a hot spot link from my phone or tablet.
For the majority of the daily tasks of writing reports, planning meetings, creating spreadsheets, or presentations I have found the Chromebook to be more than sufficient. I have access to my Google Docs, as well as O365 applications so am able to undertake most tasks without the need for expensive hardware or software.
