What do you like best?
It's great to have a normal PC that is able to turn into a Chromebook for an organization that runs entirely off a drive. It's really convenient to save a file and have it automatically be uploaded to my Google Drive (rather than have to take extra steps like with a normal PC/laptop). The CloudReady technology makes this possible without having to buy entirely new software. As a non-profit, this is very convenient.
What do you dislike?
I have had certain problems with the use of my CloudReady device. For example, the software on the laptop has made it difficult for me to connect to our organization's printer, while other devices, PCs, and laptops have no problem with it (leading me to assume that the CloudReady aspect is the problem). Further, because it's software on a normal PC, I had to manually go through and mark the new keyboard shortcuts - there are pictures on the keys of what the shortcuts used to do, but these no longer apply with the new CloudReady software. This isn't a huge problem, but it's a little annoying. Finally, the software runs a little slow over the network (far slower than the computer that I bring from home to complete work).
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It pairs really nicely with an organization that runs off of Google Drive, so that's very convenient. In addition, it's nice when you don't have a lot of external software and are just using Google products (i.e. I edit photos using Google photos, make slideshows with Google Slides, excel sheets with Google Sheets, etc.)
