I have a potential client that runs a salon. She would like to have a laptop computer at the front desk to take customer info and other salon related tasks.
I’m thinking that a Chromebook might be a good choice for the following reasons:
- Chromebooks are inexpensive. If the Chromebook gets stolen from the front desk it won’t put her in the poor house.
- Chromebooks are pretty much locked-down and so the risk of viruses and other mischief is very low.
- The software she’ll be employing will be Xojo web applications so there isn’t anything to install on the Chromebook and her salon data can’t walk off.
Does this seem like a reasonable set of assumptions? If not, what is the downside to employing a Chromebook as a small business workstation?
