Is a Windows Computer Still Necessary?

Episode 1689 (37:10)

Sue from OFallon, IL
Windows laptop

Sue wants to know what new Windows computer she should buy. Leo says that he's noticed that 99% of what he does right now is through a web browser. So that means a Chromebook is ideal. For most people, Windows is really overkill and requires people to become an expert in the OS, especially in security. But a Chromebook offers much better security for just about everyone and if something goes awry, they can simply "powerwash" it... and they're back up in minutes. So for most people, the default really shouldn't be a Windows PC these days.
