    I am thinking about getting a Chromebook to use as a thin client for work. Basically just use it to RDP into servers and desktops where all the apps I would need to run already exist. Has anyone tried this or have a good/bad experiences with a Chromebook they can share? I have used a nexus 10 over the last year with mixed results. The nexus gets hit and then Randolph reboots or drops my wifi connection.

    Today's Chromebooks are better than ever. I do recommend a 4GB RAM model, and there are a variety of processors and screen sizes (and screen quality) in this year's crop, so you'll want to figure out where your priorities are. The Celeron models (all Haswell-based) are easily the fastest, but of course, they also have less battery life.

    The web is full of comparisons of the various models that would do a far better job than I can here, but none of them are bad - some are just better for a particular application than others, when it comes to screen size, resolution, processor speed, battery life, and of course, keyboard/trackpad usability (definitely look at that!).

    You'll love the 2-second boot time and the overall speed, but again, unless you only ever have a couple of browser tabs open, you'll want a 4GB RAM model. I rarely have fewer than 20 tabs open, so that's a priority for me.

    Chromebook is making a big push into enterprise recently from the ability to use single corporate sign-on thru Chromebooks for Work program to corporate apps such as Citrix Receiver ChromeOS.

    Second the recommendation to get a 4GB model. I'm a heavy tab user and have to refresh on the 2GB model.

    Have a look here, if you'd like an "alternative" opinion. Of course, it's by Microsoft and therefore "slightly" biased... ;-)

    Even if you don't agree, it's still kinda funny. Windows still has more "apps", and doesn't rely on the cloud features that much.

    ? BlackBerry? I premdict the future's gonna be chenomenal! ?

    Hey. Im curious to know if the Citrix Receiver is available for Chromebook again. I was in search for a similar machine just to RDP to my office desk but when i was buying, Citrix had decommissioned Receiver for Chrome OS. Thus ended up buying a Mac. I can still move to Chromebook if Citrix is available again
