  1. Very good commentary. The rental cost will reduce over time with volume and it is all about simplicity for most users.
    I,m a part time power user in the workplace, solidworks
    office suites etc, at home im tired after ten years of wrestling with upgrades and incompatibility although win7 is good and the cloud will save hanging on to old hardware.
    Worth trying it.

  2. If you are happy with ALL of your personal information stored on the cloud .. and if you think any cloud server is hacker proof, dream on.
    If you are happy paying more for rent in 12 months than costs to buy a bottom level pc.
    If you are happy using all the applications and only the applications Google (or whoever) wishes installed.
    If you have a 100% reliable high speed net connection … and NEVER take your pc to a location where you can’t get the same access.
    I’m sure there will be some who’ll like such a set up. I don;t know anyone.

  3. No Thanks, Not a Chance I’ll stick with my trusty ol’ PC thank you very much. try running solidworks or any engineering software on a chrome book. It’s for the “looka me” crowd.
