1. Can I open Chrome in it and watch netflix / other streaming services that people watch?
Who cares? Netflix has been working in Linux-native Chrome for over a year now. There's no need to mess with Wine.
2. Can I download Steam on it and play a library of games without running into driver issues?
Most D3D9 games (and also the relatively-rare OpenGL or Vulkan titles) work fine. If you have a problem with any of them, it's usually an issue with 3rd-party DRM. D3D11 support still has a long way to go toward getting playable results.
