Seeing these articles floating around lately:
A couple years ago, my Mac was in service for 3 days and I ended up using my PC (mainly a Plex Media Server). My work is mainly done in a web browser (web dev), so Chrome is all I really needed. Most of everything I do on a regular basis is normally done in Chrome, save for FTP, text editor, and the occasional Photoshop edit. I feel like I wouldn't have to make too many compromises if I only had to use a Chromebook.
