Seeking info. I have been offered a new Chromebook of my choice, so I am studying up on what this thingie is.
I get it about Linux and open-source, and I understand the cloud concept of storing software and data in the ether rather than in my machine, and grabbing what I need when I need it. I have read what Wiki has to say about these devices.
But I need some input from folks who are actually using such a device and how that is working out for you in real life.
Do I need to pay anything to use the Cloud, other than just having my own ISP? Info about which specific machine to get would be appreciated.
I live very rural, so I hook to the net via copper that is fed by fiberoptics to within about 2 thousand feet of my home. I get about 1.5 Mbps speed, which is fast for around here and just about free to boot, thanks to my local phone coop. I almost never use a computer away from home. No need to. My internet service is pretty damn reliable, considering how far out in the boonies I am.
Thanks in advance for any help or insight you can offer.
