Would you recommend a Chromebook to your boss?

I am curious how many people here would ever recommend to their boss to get a Chromebook for business?

I think it would be great for:
- sales people
- administrative
- technical staff

I wouldn't recommend it for Finance people, or people that use a lot of spreadsheets.

I would recommend it, certainly for sales people when they are on the go meeting up with clients.

If I had a boss, I would definitely make the business case for Chromebooks over other options requiring users and system engineers to manage them.

Better yet, I'd recommend a Chromebook for my wife! :-)

Do you think it would work for a realtor?

Not until remote desktop capability is available natively, or VPN, or best yet a VM View Client.

I'm confused, will not connect to your internal WiFi because of your company's security or because of the Chromebooks security. Me, I would recomend this to my boss, and I already have!

Yes, my company has switched to gmail for our mail, docs, and they are hosting our internal app for 90% of everything we use a computer for. we too have a vpn available which we are trying to obsolete via a Gapp, and some offices were running an extraordinary tkip on the wifi, but that has been dealt with.

You mean like thinVNC?
ThinVNC is a html5 remote desktop server. You install it onto the matinee you want to rdp into, or onto a 'gateway' machine. You can then access it from any modern browser using http or https.
There are other similar products out there too.

VPN seems a bit pointless to me when you have no local software. Am I missing something there?

Dunno about a VMWare view client. What would that do that RDP wouldn't?

I would be happy to recommend Chromebook to my boss. In fact, I already did. The kind of work we do deals with the use of a lot of Google apps.
