The lack of a delete key makes the Chromebook a disappointment | Techi.com. As computer buyers are finding out, a Chromebook can be a very useful tool for the computing lawyer or professional. While the author berates the Chrome Pixel for the lack of a delete key (please), I am typing this post on a $199 Chromebook by Acer that has a 320 Gigabyte hard drive, and on which I have installed, and am using Chrubuntu, which is all I need when traveling. If I want to run Windows software, which I need to do often for document creation and processing, I just power up TeamViewer, and I am running my notebook machine from the web. I thought about installing WINE, and running Windows natively; but, then I asked myself, WHY? If I am carrying the little 3 pound netbook around, I just leave my notebook connected at home or the office. Click, click, and I am looking at a miniature version of my Windows desktop. And, the Acer Chromebook has a Delete key.
