|j0dest3r||The hype around tablet type devices is waning even Apple is rumored to be testing arm based laptops with OSX. Microsoft of course is concentrating on keyboard mouse users as well for the upcoming Windows 9. Interesting times, thanks for sharing.|

Netbooks 2.0 - aka Chromebooks - will take another shot at displacing Windows at the entry level, according to Gartner...
In three years the number of Chromebooks sold should match the number of Macs Apple sells.
Assuming they can break out of the North American market that consumes 82% of them.
But it doesn't look like Microsoft will give up this market without a fight...

This doesn't look like a fad

|j0dest3r||I really don't get the point of these. I can see special use cases like pointed out earlier where a company is in the Google Eco system and does everything productive in the cloud anyways, sure but for a general use computer? An HP laptop with Windows is only $40.00 more.|

|hagbard||We cracked the screen on our 303 Samsung. How? Closing the screen onto the keyboard. The keyboard actually cracked the screen. That's how cheaply they're made.|

There is just one on sale at the Canadian PlayStore and it looks as standard as it gets...

|BGY11||I'm hesitant to purchase a Chromebook online (via Google Play, or otherwise) until I can verify that the keyboard layout is not the bilingual one up here. I just picked up the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook, and I can't stand the shortened left SHIFT key. Keep hitting the accented characters key just to the right of it.|

Hey, this might help Chromebooks adoption...

|ExDilbert||It looks like Canadians are getting ripped off on Chromebooks. The Samsung Chromebook XE303C12 is $225.00-$249.00 on Amazon.com. It's $330-$597 on Amazon.ca. The Acer C720 Chromebook is $199-$260 vs $299-$399. The HP Chromebook 11 is $339-$399 vs $399. The HP Chromebook 14 is $299-$368 vs $320-$539. (The HP models seem to be the only ones where prices are close to comparable.) They are out of stock on Google Play (Canada) so there is probably some profiteering going on. My take is to wait a few months and prices will drop when supplies increase.|

|DRS||In 2013 2.5 million chromebooks were shipped world wide and it is predicted that that number will double this year. They will never replace a windows or mac pc how ever if your computer is used for mostly internet and skydrive or google docs than they become a very credible computer. Low power consumption,fast bootup and shut down, auto backup to the cloud, a simple O/S, compact size and weight, low price are just some of the reasons that this will appeal to many of us that are not as computer literate as you computer geeks out there|
