I have an Acer C720 Chromebook, 4G of RAM and 16G SSD with a Haswell chipset and absolutely love it. It has nearly instant boot up and nearly instant wake-up when the lid is opened. Battery life is outstanding with 8+ hours easily and maybe a 2hr recharge. This was my first Chrome device and I discovered I use it about 90% of the time for most web browsing or online tasks.
The 4G option, SSD and Haswell really add to the experience and I recommend spending for it.
When an old desktop I had died, this was first on my list to replace it. My wife and step-son use it simply for web surfing or email and this is ideal for that. It has the nearly instant boot of the Chromebook, and I opted for the 4G RAM and Haswell option with the keyboard and mouse as well. The graphics look great on the larger monitor. Now that upstairs computer is using a handful of watts at idle compared to the 100W or so of the old PC that was sitting there.
The bluetooth keyboard and mouse are not the highest quality, but they have good feel and basic function. Very similar to the keyboard of the Chromebook.
One more time to underscore...there are limitations to using Chrome devices.
No CD/DVD drive, the codecs don't exist to read the media if you connect one over USB and there are no ripping/copy utilities to say rip mp3 for upload from your CD media, or copy your DVD's to files for viewing. This one is pretty important to me...it ensures that I must have another PC to do this. This does have a memory card reader and if you already have media formatted, you can import it without trouble, you just can't rip from CD/DVD to generate those files.
Without Windows around, you can't update common GPS firmware, remote control programming, programming the firmware of a myriad of other electronics... thus I still have to have a boot of Windows kicking around too.
These devices nearly require a wi-fi connection to be useful. They have very limited onboard storage. So while traveling as an example you won't be able to keep a large music library or video library on the device, you will have to rely on a steady wi-fi connection.
Like I said though, my experiment with the Chromebook has shown me that it is a 90% device, it is useful for me 90% of the time I want to look something up, or sit and write a review like this. The Chromebox is just the less mobile sister device. For a first Chrome device, I'd recommend the Chromebook due to the portability of it...it's a great couch companion and being so inexpensive it's a great travel choice too. Once you understand the use, this Chromebox could be handy to add.
These also make a neat media center PC for online based content, they integrate with a modern TV very nicely.
Uses: Web browsing, email, social media, printing, photo sharing
Peripherals: (1) DIsplayPort to VGA adapter to make use of existing, older Dell monitor. (2) USB SanDisk Cruzer drive permanently attached for storage. I lose USB 3.0 with the Cruzer, but it's the same size as the keyboard/mouse dongle - which is perfect for keeping the drive plugged in all the time. For my mother, the lost transfer speeds are not an issue. (3) Epson XP-410 wireless printer.
Setup: The setup was a breeze. The Chromebox powered up in seconds. The bundled keyboard and mouse work great. I plugged the Ethernet cable from the DSL modem into the Chromebox's Ethernet port and was connected to the Internet in 2 minutes at most. Wireless setup with the printer was just as easy. Google Cloud print works flawlessly, and I also set up Epson Connect for email printing - which my mother does often.
Chrome's built-in virus protection and automatic updating will keep my less sophisticated user happy - no more downloading and installing Windows patches and software updates. MS Office and Internet Explorer? Out the door! Tangled cords? Gone. Clunky, space-hogging PC boxes? See ya later!
For ease of use, you will hard-pressed to beat this Chromebox. Of course, if you want to install third party software or use any peripheral that requires installing drivers/software, this will not work for you. I am a Mac user and may well switch to a Chromebox in the future. That's how much I like this product.
Google Docs is an adequate MS Office replacement and I have found web based applications to replace Visio (Lucidchart) and Project (Smartsheets). While there is a monthly charge the benefit of these apps is that I can access them anywhere and they integrate with Google Drive. This flexibility and ease of collaboration make these apps worth the price.
If you're a Microsoft Office fan, Office 360 and Outlook.com also works great in Chrome OS.
PDF handling is weak in Chrome OS and I haven't yet found an app that is good at merging or editing PDF. I usually do this on my 2010 MBP when needed.
I also stopped using VMware and now use Amazon Web Services for any VMs I need for testing or development. I haven't yet tested the Chromebox with AWS Workspaces (virtual Windows desktop), but plan on doing so in the near future. If this works well I may be able to shut down my Windows workstation completely.
On the rare occasions I need to access Windows I use Chrome Remote Desktop. I use my old Win7 machine primarily for video rendering and the occasional CD/DVD rip or burn.
I have a Synology NAS (http://amzn.to/1FMqFld) and run a Plex server on it. I can watch any movies via Plex for Chrome plug in.
One thing I haven't been able to do with my Chromebox is share my desktop via join.me. I can attend join.me sessions but not share. I can also attend Adobe Connect sessions, but don't know if I could share. Webex does not work on the Chromebook due to lack of Java support and I have not yet tried GoToMeeting.
The Chromebox is also great for managing customer desktops via Logmein Central and supports most USB peripherals. I have had no issues using USB devices. For example, my Audioengine D1 DAC (http://amzn.to/1FMrkDa) works without issue.
If you have good Internet connectivity and can get comfortable computing in the cloud, the Chromebox is a capable machine. I find the i3 w/4Gb of RAM (minimum) to be an ideal set up. I can stream music from Google Play, work with 10+ tabs open, watch video and edit documents with no performance hits.
I am considering picking up one of the Celeron based models and installing Linux on it so I can run Plex and Squeezebox server on it and take the load off of my NAS.
When I purchased the Chromebox, I initially thought I would try it out and ultimately use it as a media PC on my TV and replace it with a Mac Mini when Apple refreshed them. After using the Chromebox for 6 months I no longer see a need to buy the new Mac Mini and can't see a reason I will ever buy another Windows machine.
The Chromebox or Chromebook may not be for everyone. You need to know your requirements. That said, for the majority of users web surfing, checking email, social media and basic productivity the Chromebox is a very capable machine.
One last point in this ridiculously long post. I now get angry every time I have to troubleshoot a Windows machine. It is an avoidable and colossal waste of time.
I do not hesitate to recommend Chromebook or Chromebox to anyone looking for an affordable, reliable and flexible computing device.
