|Next Big Thing, but small|
Imagine an operating system that is JUST a web browser. And not just a web browser, but Google Chrome, virtually the best browser available. Google has produced whole netbooks with this concept in mind, and for a hefty price on the users. Going as low as $300, everyone is probably wondering if these things are worth it. I don't have one, but I would say that is based entirely on how you use your computer. If you are on the web all the time, then your pretty much ARE already using a chromebook, just not entirely optimized for that sole purpose. I personally would not get one of these for $300 because I <3 my windows and I <3 my games. So is it worth it? If you are the average mac hating android phone using joe, then sure, why not? Now you have something to flaunt back in your mac friend's faces. I'm never against things Google makes. They provide plenty a web apps to let you be entirely productive on this machine, and it'd be a pretty nifty investment.
Of course you could try to buy a netbook at $200 and dual boot between this Chrome OS and Windows. I mean that is what I would do.
