    Chromebook

    Well, I've been looking at the Chromebook for a while now and am thinking about buying one. I do a lot of traveling and with my courses this year it would help quite a bit when I need to look something up quickly.

    For those of you who don't know. Chromebook is powered by Chrome OS which is made by Google. It's main purpose is web browsing and portability making it extremely lightweight. Basically none of your setting are held on the actual PC and instead are held on the web. It boots in around 8 seconds and from standby boots in about 3 seconds.

    This is basically exactly what I'm looking for. I already have two laptops and two desktops so other things won't be a problem. This is just going to be a carry with me type of thing. Do you think I should go for it? And if anyone has used the OS, what did you think of it?

    Details about the OS below

    I've heard that flash can't run real well but other than flash, it's a great portable little thing

    I would but the only thing bad about it is if you have multy things open on it and one thing crashes it will crash every thing you have open.
