16GB of internal storage... Uhhh.

"The $249.99 starting price isn't shabby at all, and that's likely because OEMs are shelling out licensing fees to Google (like they do with Windows/Microsoft). "

More like the fact that they KNOW that they won't sell if the hike the price... which they WILL once sales start to rise. Either way it's simply a really pants machine with really low specs in the great scheme of things.

But the marketing wheels keep on turning and people get paid to push this rubbish.

Thus speaks someone who has never used one and just fears losing their IT support job in a couple of years.

A chromebook is simply another handy tool. The usability of them is increasing at a high rate. Ignore them at your peril.

Chromebooks should be renamed to internet books. That's all they are good for. The simple fact that you can't install things like Java or Shockwave, let alone use third party extensions like .exe. means it is soley for internet, nothing more.

$249 For an internet browser is overpriced.

I despise this OS, all it's useful for is browsing, and typing stuff on google docs, I could get a better computer at around this price with Win 7
