What Kind of Businesses Should Use This?

I know that some schools and city officials are switching over to Google Chromebook for their computing needs. But what other types of businesses could get the most benefit from making the change?

Just about any could benefit outside of Graphics and Film, Programming, and CAD. Citrix is nice but depends on the amount of users that need CPU cycles...

Agreeing with Jason, here. If you only need a computer for basic stuff, like word processing or watching videos, then you should be fine with a Chromebook. But if your business needs to do other stuff-- well, maybe only have a Chromebook for travel or something.

Any company that uses Google apps.

My company is in the web software development business. We've gone from having a room full of servers to none at all in about 2 years. Everybody has a laptop, most of our corporate apps are cloud services or running on Amazon ec2 machines. We save quite a bit on Microsoft tax now.

Chromebooks look promising for us.

I would have to agree with the consensus.

Lets just say that Microsoft has noticed. They started to run attack ads. What does that tell you?

I believe Google's Chromebook can be used in any type of business, especially in businesses that make use of basic computing stuff. I've been using this for my business and it never failed me to meet the requirements of my work. I mostly use a lot of Google applications so a Chromebook has lots of benefits for me.
