"I say yes.. My Samsung Series 5 Chromebook, which I've been
using for months now, is the perfect grab and go laptop. It's
weights just over three-pounds, the battery lasts for about ten
hours, and the lightweight Linux desktop with a Chrome Web browser
interface is all I need for work out of the office.
"That said, the first generation of Chrome OS had its problems.
On the other hand, since then Google has made numerous significant
improvements to Chrome OS and almost every week sees new
improvement to Chrome OS, the Chrome Web browser, and Google's
family of cloud-based applications that Chromebooks use in lieu of
traditional desktop apps."
