    As an enterprise user…. I don’t understand how you’re going to convince businesses to switch to Chromebooks, with the “killer feature” of running a Windows VM, when they’re already using Windows… Where is the cost savings to justify it? What benefits do they get? I can understand something like the WINE translation, because Chrome OS is easier to maintain in a fleet, has less surface for viruses etc etc. But if you’re just running a Windows VM on top of it what’s the point?

    7:50 I don’t think its the trackpad, i think its some sort of glitch in the software because this happens to me as well on my chrome book and it usually goes away after a restart. Also, I set my search button to caps lock in the chrome os settings, I’m not sure if that will allow caps lock to work on the windows virtual machine but it might.

    ok sure THAT computer does those things but the acer 315 chromebook has a great touchpad (juuuust max out the sensitivity settings on it) it has a numerical key pad with delete (just doesnt have number lock) and (idk if they aaallll have this) you can make the very top row keys F keys or just hold alt+search (i think) and makes the 1 to = keys and those are the basic F1 to F10 keys the only downside to this is that THE F***ING COMPUTER DOESN'T HAVE A STUPID COOLING SYSTEM (idk if they all don't) das just wierd man but is pretty good beside that

    What do you mean? Chromebooks have always been able to be used productively. I'm using a Chromebook. Linux is a thing on Chromebooks since forever. If not from Crostini, from Crouton. I've been using all the same apps on my desktop as on my Chromebook. You don't need a high end Chromebook for that. I'm pretty happy with a low end Chromebook. Full productivity suite (LibreOffice :D) Blender, Octave, etc.

    That daft pink hat is an ABOMINATION. The whole idea of a Chromebook is getting away from all the crap Windows brings with it. This is a 'horses for courses' thing, and a there are a lot of horses who need/want a very simple machine that will look after the internet, word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations. "Being able to access Windows should appeal to any Chromebook user" - DAFT! The whole idea is to dump Windows and the headaches that come free with it. Of course, many people need windows (or are far too stupid/narrow minded to realise they don't), and that's fine - what isn't fine is your arrogant, narrow minded, self centred crap that assumes everyone thinks like you. I dumped Windows because I was sick of it - and that's the same as a lot of people - thus the sales figures. Open your mind rather than spout rubbish.

    If I ever had a low power chromebook, I’d just install a lightweight Linux distro on it. You’re not locked down in the tiny chromeOS list of applications (does it even have Steam at all???), plus you do away with the data tracking garbage. For something higher powered windows works fine as well.

    The first time I saw a Chromebook IRL it was a super cheap Acer chromebook from the first gen and Oh boy I was surprised how fast that thing was... The scrolling was smooth, the touchpad was great, the Everything was fast, but the problem was it was merely a Chrome browser with some file management. I knew what they were, I knew what they ran on (Linux) and I knew everything about them, but seeing one IRL was a pleasant surprise (Especially here in Israel) Given the fact "DaVinci Resolve" has Linux support, should be great even for media creators.I can live with: Blender, GIMP, Davinci, OpenOffice(or Google Drive) no problem...
