What will you miss?

What are you going to miss most about your current computer when you get your Chromebook?

I'm going to miss having certain programs that I don't know will be available for Chromebook, like image editing and Skype.

Bluetooth capability;
DLNA;
PC Gaming;
uTorrent;
Silverlight;
Visual Studio 2010;
VLC/MediaPlayer Classic;
Windows File and Printer sharing.


I still don't know how people will use their Chromebooks with their home servers. Guess most will roll their own web server(s).

I am not going to miss anything because I am going to supplement with Google Chrome Book, not replace my current computer. Maybe I will one day, but this one has some life in it and each will serve their own purposes.

If u torrent will not be supported in chrome book then that will really be serious. In any case if I have to get a Chromebook, I might have to own it alongside my laptop.

Aren't there torrenting apps in the Google Chrome Store? I remember seeing something utorrent-like in there once. I'll check it out later to confirm.

Not sure I'll miss anything, as it isn't intended to replace my work laptop, only supplement it. Tho' if ChromeOS catches on, the apps and extensions may develop to a point where it will be my primary machine one day. Only time will tell...

I would repeat what someone else said. The Chromebook will be a compliment to our existing computers. Only time will tell if it can replace them.

Heh there will most certainly be a torrent app launched for Chromebooks within a few days of them being on the market. Tech buyers will demand it!
I am hoping for an NZB Drop type of program

I plan to do the same, initially at least. I would like to at least get one, when I have the money, and see how it works for me. I don't torrent so I won't have issues with that for now.
