No good using the battery on your laptop if it can't connect via your router. Water damage to your ADSL line? Say goodbye to your work in progress until it's fixed. And if you want to work on your project uninterrupted in the peace and tranquility of a country get-away, think again. These are just a few examples of actual connectivity issues I've experienced (including the getting away to the country to write - which had the benefit of ensuring I wasn't distracted by email and internet while using Scrivener). Hence I would never use an online only app to write a novel. Other people are obviously not as bothered by the connectivity demons as myself.
I wrote about "dead brick" phobia a while back, after living through a half-day power outage in rural Wisconsin. I survived by using offline apps, including Google Docs & Sheets. When power returned, my work synched to Google Drive. During the blackout I checked on tornadoes, and sent out texts, via the Verizon 3g chip in my Chromebook. This first-generation machine has a 5.5 hour battery, but the newer models run longer. Anyway, I'd just like to repeat that working this way is portable and affordable. Try buying any recent Mac laptop for under $300. And while I'd love to have a working version of Scrivener, I'm happy just reading, writing up research notes, and revising portions of draft.
PS: what kind of water damage? I thought you folks Down Under were in a long-term drought.
