    The best part about the Chromebook is fact that you don't have anything stored on it, you don't install anything on it, you don't get viruses on it and you can reset it back to factory defaults in less than 2 minutes. If you lose it or it's stolen, you don't lose data.

    Maybe thats why I dont think Chromebooks aren't that big of a threat because here in the Philippines, Internet is lightyears away from almost all countries. Internet speeds average around 1 Mbps download and 4G LTE has bad coverage here which would make Chromebooks like it was running on a Pentium II proccessor.
