This article reads like a promo for the Chromebook. I would like to see a more critical analysis of the Chromebook. Can it really do the things Google claims? How does/will it perform in practice? Does the "all in the cloud" approach address business concerns? (and what are those business concerns). Will the Chromebook support hybrid cloud approaches? How does the Chromebook address changing employee needs? Will the Chromebook work for travelling sales people who are not granted network access at client sites?
Lots of open questions not considered in this article - other than to mock Enterprise IT staff by saying we "dont get it" just like we scoffed at "Cloud" when that buzz-word hit the market. I personally didnt scoff, the organization I work for embraced many opportunities of the cloud before it became a marketing topic, but I still have many reservations with the Chromebook approach.
Looking forward to your follow-up article.
