Took delivery of A Samsung Series 3 Chromebook this morning.
Im a bit of a google fanboi - all my work, contacts, calendar, music, pictures is in there, in the cloud wherever I need it, whenever.
But since Chrome browser is so good, I hadnt got around to getting a chromebook until my netbook (dual boot XP/Lubuntu) started having HDD problems and was due for retirement (I do have a Nexus phone though).
Was nervous about committing to a new netbook that couldnt run Excel for my work. However, out of the box, sync'd and everything at my fingertips in seconds.
BUT...spaffy-goo moment was when I installed Chrome Remote Desktop on my Main home W7 PC and on the chromebook and clicked "Connect".
Works. First. ****. Time. Perfectly.
I can access my mahoosive Excel models anywhere if I need to make hefty changes that google spreadsheets cant handle. Or in fact I can open windows media centre and tell it to record something.
No twiddling with the router. Just one PIN needed to access. And I can do it from any chrome browser in the world with RDP installed.
All that excitement, I need to go and lie down.
