Google Chromebook

Official Information Site

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.

  1. thats pretty slick. there must be enough google apps to quickly fill the void on things that you would be missing by just having a web browser. as long as you're not doing anything that hard core

  5. Seems like a gimmick to me. An entire OS that's basically a web browser, on a low-spec laptop for $300? No, just no. Any rational consumer would get any other netbook.
