Anybody Running a Chromebook

I only use a computer to surf the internet, post tripe on forums, order shit I don't need from Ebay, and catch up on all the friends I haven't seen in 20 years and their dog's birthdays on facebook. I occasionally store pics. I have become very frustrated with how quickly my new computers slow down and how they spend so much time stalled asking me if I want to debug a script...whatever that is.

Google Chrome sucks run through a PC. Let me qualify that. Everytime I have installed it, I immediately picked up Trovi browser highjacker. Other than that, functionally it was fine.

Chromebook though doesn't carry the risk of virus or other malware. It is self updating, so no slowing down with time. The price is right. So back to my question. Are any of you running a Chromebook and what do you think? In principle, I am the taget market for Chromebook. It would seem to be a perfect match for my usage.

I am assuming that I can access the web through my phone as a wireless hotspot if I need to.

Just keep in mind, don't talk about anything important around that machine.

I actually refuse to install Chrome because of all the tracking that Google does, but this crap is over the top.

If it runs software, someone will find a way. They always find a way......bastards.
