It can sync your Chrome settings with ease. It's faster than a PC.
Too much dependence on the internet.
Chrome is a nice concept, but there's some pretty huge flaws that'll turn this into another flop. Even though the OS has the look and feel of a real OS, it's too dependent on the internet. Why would anyone spend money buying an online based OS when they can spend the same money on a Windows computer that can run independent of the internet?
This is really about poor marketing. The OS runs offline. If they take away the "Chrome" name and replace it with Android, then stop telling people that it's really a browser on steroids, then people will see it as a real Windows competitor.
