This is more about the OS, but you should try getting a Chromebook, they're actually pretty cool.

Unless you're going to be using Microsoft Office programs....

Google has their own suit for document editing. (word, excel and powerpoint equivalent)
All of those documents also follow an open standard (include microsoft's version of these) so they are cross compatible.

Well, I advise getting a Chromebook if you haven't gotten a computer already.

     I have to agree here. I mucked around with chromium os for a while (the open source version of chrome). I have one running in my bedroom connected to my TV, but I mainly use it for netflix. It has its uses, but its defenately not a full feature os. 

imo, linux>windows>mac os>android>ios>chrome, feature wise. They all have their uses though

 

linux/ windows to dual boot on a pc

mac os for...... overpaying for a laptop with little feature set

android for mobile

ios for people who don't like android, or just want a freaking easy to use phone and dont need to customise anything, and dont want the possibility in case they ever wanted to.....

chromium os for people who don't need anything but a web browser

 

 

At the end of the day though, you can basically get the same functionality of chrome os by opening the chrome web browser in windows :P

 

 

edit:@spleen: look into the thinkpad carbon x1. Its niceeeee.
