    In a nutshell – yes.

    There’s the occasional program mine doesn’t like such as silverlight but 99% of “normal” stuff just works perfectly. As I said on the other thread don’t expect to be video editing or anything fancy and you’ll be laughing.

    Wife is after a new laptop to help with some course that she’s doing. I was considering letting her use my macbook pro and getting a chromebook for myself.

    This would be by far the cheapest option, and would allow me to upgrade/fix my bikes.

    Would a chromebook allow me to pester folk on here, stream movies etc, play music and all of that kind of stuff?

    hello Anne, long time. Hope you’re well!

    George, someone asked the same thing only just today:

    Silverlight wont work, but then I dont like using sites that use silverlight anyway. Flash is supported to some degree. No Java, but then that’s A GOOD THING!

    I think you’ll quite happily maintain your trolling prowess with one. 😉

    if my asus eeepc 701 manages fine (admttedly runnng a very stripped out linux set up) then a chromebook will be fine.

    although i use it for watching movies on planes and surfing the net when im in parts of the world i wouldnt take my ipad for fear of having it taxed.
