Keep in mind that Google sets some drop-dead dates for support, so once yours is no longer supported, you start being at risk for exploits that will never get patched just like Android phones and tablets whose support has been prematurely dropped by manufacturers. Which is pretty bad for a system that is designed to be continuously online.

To me, that pretty much rules them out completely. I have a number of 12-15 year old laptops I'm still getting some uses for, and if I cannot do with the hardware whatever I may please, that makes them a non-starter.

Best compromise - if it's not so locked down that you can blow the OS away and replace it with some version of Linux, do it on day one so you have nothing committed to ChromeOS.
