I have never used a chromebook. I have always used my windows 7 laptop. I am considering getting a chromebook and use it as my main laptop. I don't know much about computers but these are my reasons: 1) The chromebook is supposed to be lighter because there is no hard drive 2) everything in in the cloud, so there is no security concerns. if the laptop gets stolen, nothing can be accessed (is that accurate?) How about my blackhat stuff? right now I keep track of everything in MS office products. How would I do that without google finding my shit?
