Chromebooks … The future of laptops

large-1I got a Samsung Chromebook the other day and have to say … I am pretty impressed.

While it won’t replace my other laptop it’s perfect for using around the home for the casual web surfer.

I have decided to do a 30 day Chromebook challenge to use it as my primary laptop for a month.

A few days in and I am bold enough to put it out there that these types of laptops will be the way of the future. Gone will be the need for high performance, massive storage laptops as the world moves to online storage.

Faster internet has made this concept a reality and I have been an early adapter of online storage solutions such as Google Drive, Dropbox and Sky Drive (now OneDrive).

But from an entrepreneurial point of view it has given me a great idea! Future programs will be cloud based, so it is just a matter of figuring out what programs haven’t quite made their way to web based applications yet?

These could be potential gold mines as more people look to rid themselves of traditional programs and go to web-based ones that don’t require frequent updates or knowledge to install.

This has opened up a big gap in my view for any entrepreneurs looking to take a slice of the online pie. Time for Jeremy to get a move on and start developing some much needed web applications, rather than whingeing about what’s not available!
