Web only Computer Usage

Web only Computer Usage

If I didn’t do development tinkering — local commandline and ability to install various UNIX tools — I could easily do web only usage.

There are a couple of professional desktop apps that I would truly miss. Keynote is one of them (both Powerpoint and Google Slides work, they just don’t work as well / easily for me).

OmniGraffle is the other. It is available for the iPad, and an iPad Pro is definitely another device I can see being a great fit for me, especially as more and more professional apps become available for it.

I’m likely to get a super cheap ASUS Chromebook ($250CAD, new!) to see how it performs, and will put ElementaryOS on it as well.
