Do you think the 850 snapdragon will powerful enough for an always connected Chromebook?

So far, the Snapdragon chips haven’t been good enough for Windows. Just wondering, since Chrome takes less resources to run than Windows. If always connected Chromebook is just around the corner and that idea will be a killer, especially, for the PC market. Microsoft web apps are getting to the point that they’re good enough for productivity. That means for most folks a Chromebook that’s always connected would be just right.

    <p>Easily. ChromeOS is incredibly lightweight and fast even on a low end Celeron. It never slows down, and just does the job. The SD850 is will more than ample, and pair it with 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC or SSD, and it will perform faultlessly (even that spec is overkill!). An always connected Chromebook actually sounds like a better idea than an always connected Windows PC!</p>
