Wuggee Notes
Low-cost processor suitable for basic tasks such as internet, music, movies.
Processor not suitable for multitasking, and computation intensive tasks such as advanced photo and video editing, etc.
Chrome OS provides online versions of docs, simple image processing, games, etc with automatic backups and no risk of virus
Chrome OS has limitations without an internet connection. Not suitable for users who depend on specific softwares such as photoshop, CAD, etc without an online equivalent.
Use with old, non-cloud ready printers requires a Mac or Windows machine to set up
Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
2 hrs battery life is less than average
Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
11.6" screen suitable for portability; too small as desktop replacement or gaming
No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
