If you could expect it for the lifetime of your chromebook I dont know...some people do buy every 2-3 years a new computer and some do use it mor than 5-7 years....the technology is changing so fast...
Perhaps I expressed myself a little clumsy. Of course I change computer after a few years (2-3 years doesn't sound unreasonable for laptops), but with lifetime support, I mean more Chrome OS itself. I don't want to buy a computer with an OS that I don't get support for at least 2-3 years (an estimated life of the laptop).

By the way, everything that I save in the cloud won't disappear, if Google decides to not support the Chromebook I have anymore?

I really want to buy the CR-48 because I want to explore the Chrome OS at one time. But I want to get support for at least 2 years more (since the CR-48 is already 1 year old). But perhaps I shouldn't count on it?

The difference is this verified boot against viruses and some code which is only used on chromebooks...but this isnt much.
Good to know!
