Even though Chromebooks have been on the market for several years, many still view them with suspicion. Chrome is just a web browser, so how could it be a useable operating system for a laptop computer? Or, the price is so low, how could these computers be any good? Or, Chromebooks are what my kid uses at school, how could they be any good for any serious computing? Or, Chromewhats?
There are many reasons to be skeptical of Chromebooks and therefore be leery of buying one. Chromebooks will not satisfy every purpose, but then there's no computer that does so. Chromebooks fill a certain target area very well, while traditional laptop computers fill a different target area very well, and tablet computers fill another target area very well. A Chromebook makes a lot of sense for some people, and no sense for others.
