I'd say the reason most of these apps within Chrome aren't quite as sharp as their PC brethren isn't because their web based, but rather because they are free. They simply don't have the fit and finish of a paid company (yet?).

Especially from the many who (correctly) believe Google knows to much about us all already!

While most of my files don't need to be protected / encrypted, I just don't want to bother with storing just unprotected Office files in Google and protected Office files elsewhere!
There are plenty of other options that allow storing of encrypted files -- such as DropBox and SkyDrive.

Consider using a Chromebook, I am writing this on one and now use 90% of the time in preference to my laptops.

Sorry but the cloud will never replace the desktop for me, no matter how many idiots adopt it as their main computing platform. At best the cloud functions as a tertiary storage platform for me and nothing else.

The Kindle Fire HD connects to a monitor or TV through HDMI. It's only $199 for the 7" inch version that has 720p and it's $250 today for the 8.9" inch version, which features full 1080p.

I enjoy Chrome Spreadsheet as well. I create websites and use spreadsheet to keep track of it all. Pity all those years I paid for software to do the same. I love spreadsheet!

Just a suggestion....You could zip / rar up your docs and password that file instead...Send the password separately - bit of a workaround but would give you the security of knowing your files are encrypted!

Being a Mac user since the introduction in the mid-80's, I would not consider anything but a Macbook Air or Macbook Pro. I love my 13" MBP, no tablet for me.

You can detach the keyboard and use it is a tablet, or type on it with a normal keyboard.
The Acer Iconia w510, for example, has an hdmi-output, so you can connect it to a bigger display.
