Chrome notebooks feature all applications, documents, and settings are stored in the cloud. So even if you lose your computer. So a user can log into computer from any Chrome notebook from anywhere.

Local data storage capability is kept the minimum.
Richard Stallman said: “The US government may try to encourage people to place their data where the US government can seize it without showing them a search warrant, rather than in their own property. However, as long as enough of us continue keeping our data under our own control, we can still do so. And we had better do so, or the option may disappear.”
