    A Chromebook is the perfect tool for job hunting /cv creating and the like. One got me on the road to employment within a month.

    It's odd... buying a Chromebook, to get a job, where they're probably using Windows. The perfect tool for job hunting would be Windows plus Office.

    Other than that, 16Gb storage is terrible (if you go for the cheap models etc)

    Everything runs online now, so Windows isn't a necessity for most jobs. Even Office 365 has a pretty good web interface. That being said, 16GB is plenty when you have cloud storage and an OS that isn't a bloated mess. 32GB is barely enough to just simply run Windows, but it's more than you ever need if you use a Chromebook [the way you're expected to]. If you're that picky about storage, most come with SD card readers.

  5. True. Our company's temporary work from home program myself and a few other asset management guys are handling will set people up with Chromebooks as thin clients since everything is all web-facing/browser facing granted people are on the domain. We just give people Teleworker VPN routers and or image the Chromebooks for OOB operation for the VPN setup (depending on use-case) but they work well. Some are basically using the VMware HVD setup so we'll go thin client - remote in / basically a vpn in to our domain and tie to a VM (VDI) others the teleworker and they are already on domain straight to just web-facing apps they need. Depends on the department, use case etc, needed apps. I'm basically just affirming @schmidtbag that everything is "online" now and or "web/browser" facing now as it were. It's really true...
