What about USB device to remote desktop features? Most in-browser RDT systems I've seen don't advertise this.If you are considering Chromebooks but are concerned about access to Windows apps, you should look at Ericom AccessNow, a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebok/ChromeOS users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops – and run their applications and desktops in a browser.
This means that you can use AccessNow for instant, turnkey web-enablement of most any Windows application.
Thanks for your answerI found it helpful. I too, need to replace my older laptop. I am thinking of going in the Chrome Netbook direction. As I read about this direction, I keep running into so much negative press that it is making me a bit apprehensive, so I decided to join this forum in order to educate myself further.
