Remember, Chrome is a work-in-progress and is still being developed and still well supported by Google.

First I gotta admit I have been a computer nerd since my first computer in 1979, a Radio Shack Model-1. Today I am a Mac and Win-7 user, at work we have XP computers. I'm pretty smart about technology.
I got my first Chrome computer, the $250 Samsung laptop when they came out not really knowing much about the Chrome OS aside from reviews online. Now, I have the newer Chromebox with the rounded white case.
Sitting right next to the monitor for the box is my iMac. I use it in conjunction with Chrome to cover for the shortfalls of this OS. Remember, Chrome is a work-in-progress and is still being developed and still well supported by Google.

The Chromebox is similar to the Chromebook in performance and features. Nice part is any change made to the settings of either reflects in both units, which is nice. Supposedly if you log in on anyone elses Chrome machine your settings, etc will eventually appear until you log-out.

With my windows-7 laptop, a rather expensive Asus ROG (Republic of Gamers) series machine, very large and heavy with 3D display using shutter glasses, the big flaw is my DVD drive never wrote correctly, so I couldn't ever make system restore discs, and when the OS got slightly corrupted it no longer allows updates to the OS. Then there's all the BS with vulnerability to viruses and spyware. Supposedly, the chrome machines are not vulnerable. Chrome means the end of messing with names like AVG and all the crapware that populates most new computers today. Switching mostly to Chrome eliminated most of what I hate in computers.

But there is a price to be paid for the convenience and boot speed; you CANNOT buy and add software. All the machine can do is access webpages.

Along with half the boomers I know, I am trying to support an engaged but aging parent with e-mail, calendar, simple word processing, and grandchild-picture functions. Those in this position know that both Windows' constant security updates and user-interface muddle and Apple's refusal to support older machines or software are challenges for those who grew up on IBM Selectrics, and that both operating systems are complex enough that talking the elderly though basic operations can be frustrating.

Chrome seems close to a workable solution. Minimalist but effective for the key grandmother tasks, secure, easy and inexpensive to replicate on support-children's home machines, cost-effective, etc. My mother's initial impressions of my new Chromebook were that it would be much less of a learning curve than her iPad had been, and that the conventional laptop interface was a better fit to her needs.

The biggest shortcoming for my purposes is the lack of a simple printing option. My mother has been printing from her iPad to a network printer, and it sort of works, but it confuses both her and the part-time network administrator at the senior-living facility, and I end up spending a lot of time trouble-shooting someone else's network. A driver for a simple laser printer (and also maybe for a snapshot-print printer) would make it all work. I'd buy a $100 base-model laser printer for her if Samsung (and/or HP, Canon, Epson...) would make sure it works and stays supported.

Better support for VGA and the other usual late-model-TV interfaces would also go a long way.

How about it, Google?

Verified Purchase
I was excited to purchase this for my elderly mother to save me from having to update her computer and fix problems constantly. The Chromebox started up in 4 seconds, had some difficulty connecting to the ethernet, but then everything ran as expected. As I started to explain to her how everything was laid out, I figured out that with this machine there is no way to install a printer. This was confirmed by Samsung tech support (excellent by the way) who said I could print using another computer with an installed printer and Chrome's "cloud printing", or purchase a network printer. There might have been a way to install the printer driver if I was fluent in Linux, but I'm not. None of these options were doable for my mom so I am sending it back.

This device did everything it said it could do, except it did not say it couldn't print. If you have a home network with multiple computers or a networked printer, then get this machine. The speed and simplicity are incredible. But if it is the only computer in the house, I would avoid it because sooner or later you will need to print something.

My wife is so happy, we got a Chromebox! 97% of what she does is just using the internet. It's super fast, turns on and off instantly, and NEVER freezes! No more hourglasses! We don't yet have a Google Cloud Printer/Scanner. We print and scan about once or twice a week, so we've hooked up a laptop pc to our printer and scanner. This should NOT be the only computer you have if you think you may ever want to run software. Also, we need to get a webcam for the Chromebox, and there are some that don't involve software or drivers. Don't forget to redeem Google's Free 100GB storage on Google Drive for two years. After purchasing this Chromebox, using your Chromebox visit [...] We got our 100GB! After two years, you will still be able to access and read your stuff, but if you're over the limit you had after two years, you won't be able to add NEW stuff. Also, by us using the Chromebox as our main computer, we save a lot of wear and tear on our pcs and laptops.
