Famous last words. Never say never. :-)

+1. Just google for "android malware" and "chrome exploits".

They used to say Macs could never get a virus. Perhaps in the strictest sense of the word virus it's true, but malware happens now because the attack surface is greater now. I expect no less of chrome powered chromebooks.

Chromebook or not, net safety should always be observed.

That all said, IMHO, re: security, anything is better than Windows.

+1 on the privacy concerns. Valid questions of anything related to Google, et al. The trend is to swap privacy for convenience. Read "Data and Goliath" for deeper insight.

BTW, I have been looking at Chromebooks as well, esp. the ones that can be rooted. Looking for cheap "terminals" for around the home.
