    Thanks to the minimal specs list, the Chromebook 14 boots up in less than 7 seconds. So, if you are one from the impatient creed - you might as well want to get your hands on one of these in the nearest store.

    Many people laughed when the Chromebook was first released. Well, they're still around, and Google keeps improving them while adding more hardware partners. These new improvements should give them an even bigger boost.

    But what about Chromebook users that need to access Windows applications like Microsoft office? They can try products like Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP solution that enables Chromebook users to connect to Terminal Servers and/or VDI virtual desktops, and run Windows applications or desktops in a browser tab.

    There's nothing to install on the Chromebook, so AccessNow is easy to deploy and manage.
