See Chrome Laptop Get Destroyed Repeatedly

One of the huge advantages of the Chrome OS is that it puts almost everything on the cloud. This gives you the flexibility to access your data from almost anywhere that has an internet connection, as well as a safer place to leave your data in case of some kind of individual accident.

What kind of accidents? Well, anything could happen. The Google Chrome OS Cr-48 Notebook appears to be very much a notebook like many others, and it can be destroyed just like all the notebooks before it. The key difference is that the physical destruction of the Chrome OS Notebook won't affect your data.

Your Chrome OS laptop could get destroyed in any number of ways – and it's fun to see what are some of those ways:

Check out our in-depth, hands-on review of the Chrome OS Notebook here.

    Yeah, There is a major flaw in "The Cloud" that has already been addressed, fixed, and has been around forever... FLASH DRIVES!
    What happens when your computer gets destroyed? Well, If you were intelligent you'd had at least most of your precious data on some sort of removable device, or already saved somewhere else. You never need internet, and you don't have to worry about losing it. "The Cloud?" No internet... No data.

    Revolutionary, but not at all practical.

    I hope they're locking people's personal docs and correspondence behind something more than a password. That guy's personal files would be equally available to anyone who guesses/knows his password. I hope he has a PC at home for security.

And if you leave it somewhere then you cannot access it elsewhere unless you have another copy.

    good point, but now adays how many places or people don't have internet?(or internet close bye) however i would agree with you this is better for the city and won't allow you to do anything while traveling without an expensive mobile hotspot.
