"Chromebook is for people who hate computers"

I quoted that from an article I found today. It is based on the analysis that PCs and laptops are for geeks. So much technical issues to resolve when something malfunctions and not everybody knows how to fix it. So with the coming of Chrome OS, Google will allegedly save the day by eliminating the need for an IT.

Hehe, I do not hate computers and I am getting a Chromebook. At the same time I have a couple of friends who hate computers and won't use them. However they are showing interest and want to see my Chromebook when I get it. So in a way that could be true.lp

Lol, I love computers & I'm still getting a Chromebook (when they drop in price of course). They seem better than Macs, which is what I was going to get.

I think Chromebooks are for people who like the newest/coolest stuff. I'll never get rid of my computer, but Chromebooks are so convenient.

All computers have something go wrong with them eventully, and Chromebooks won't be any exception. In fact, I kinda expect there'll be a lot going wrong with them in the early days, before all the kinks get worked out.

i love computers as well but if my mac and the chromebook sync it would be awesome. as then it would all interact and be closely tied, with out having the hasle of file transferring and etc, i love the chromebook idea, but i dont hate computers.

I'm sure they will reduce the need, but not get rid of IT altogether. (or I bettet find another job!)

Question: Who, in a corporation, decides what kind of computers the company will be buying?

The answer to this may be very relevant for Google's enterprise model with ChromeOS.

The IT people decide. We asked for Chromebooks and were told to go away.
