Rooting is pretty easy, but unless there is a compelling reason to do so, (an app that you want to run that requires it or the desire to run custom kernels) you may want to stick with the stock rom. ...

Heh... it would be difficult period getting WIndows 7 to run much less have any apps installed, in that amount of storage. Dual booting? Yeah right. You could do it, but you're going to have to...

I used the USB cable. The Cr-48 saw it as an Ethernet port. Haven't tried wireless tether yet.

Apps and extensions are great, but unless you can make use of the mass-market apps and don't have to use very specialized locally installable executables (pretty much anyone in IT) the Chromebook's...

More reason of why for a lot of folks, this will never be their primary computing platform in it's current form. Offline functionality is very limited.

well, it goes without saying that without network connectivity of any kind, the chromebook will double as a handy paperweight.

3G models will give you an alternative to wifi. Also, I've been able to successfully tether my android phone to my Cr-48, so you do have options if wifi isn't available.

Unfortunately LogMeIn requires either ActiveX or Java, neither of which you're going to find on the Chromebook.

I don't know about imaging devices as that would probably be more of a Flash dependent issue, but as far as USB wireless mice go, I've had good luck.
