In general, I can't say that I really agree with Ed, especially on his second point regarding automatic updates. His example uses Chrome itself, not Chrome OS! That isn't even applicable!

I received a CR-48 from Google in December, and since I had just purchased my own netbook, I figured that the CR-48 could go to my wife. Before our marriage, she was at her parent's home (we aren't very far out of high school) using Macs. The CR-48 has been a perfect fit for her. I can say that it has been 100 percent reliable, update after update. I haven't had a single tab crash, much less anything worse.

Windows on the other hand has a terribly annoying update process. Ever turned on your computer to get something done, and ended up waiting 10 minutes for updates to install at boot? Not on the CR-48.


Also, the connectivity issue is bogus. I'm a college student working at a pizza place, and I have an Android phone with no data plan. That's right, no data plan. I've got WiFi everywhere I go. If your corporate building doesn't have enough AP's to blanket your whole building, you need to fire your IT staff and start over.
