I still use my Win 7 laptop for desk work, since I am still working on getting all of our apps into the cloud, but I use the Chromebook whenever I can. I've attached it to the external monitor on my desk, but still can't figure out how to get it to work with the external monitor with the lid closed. If I can do that, then I think that I will be more likely to use it as my regular desk unit. On the other hand, it's such a breeze to pick up the Chromebook I rarely think about going on my regular business appointments with the Win 7 machine unless I know that Powerpoint or some special fonts for our Word documents are at issue. After work, I find myself spending all the time that I can manage on the Chromebook for leanback. I have a Nook Color which is the next gradation down in leanback, and I find that after using the Chromebook I am less likely to use the Nook for anything but reading. Tablets are nice, but if I had a Google TV remote on the Chromebook I am not sure that I would need much more in a tablet beyond what a Nook Color offers. I'd like to use the Chromebook more for book reading, since the Nook Color can read my Google Books ebooks, but because they come in the "back door" via Adobe Digital Editions, the bookmarks don't get synced to my other devices. Also, the ebook reader for the browser is not optimal for leanback reading. I am looking forward to the offline versions of the Docs apps, if this works well I will look more seriously at migrating more of our documents to Docs.
