This is crazy: Huge resolution and a system that can steal away your files (for all of you who dont know, if something is in the cloud, its no longer yours, its property of the clouds system owner).

Kiss my (...) google, and i used to like you.

In the UK all prices quoted MUST include Sales Tax (VAT) which is currently at 20%, so while we may be getting ripped off, it is not by as much as you think and is easily accounted for by manufacturers hedging for exchange rate variability.

Even without VAT it is massively overpriced, who in their right minds would buy this?

Intel integrated graphics has no problem pushing "it all". It isn't trying to run Crysis. You would be throwing money away and wasting battery life putting a graphics add on to a "cloud" computing system.

This isn't made to sell really well. Two of the biggest complaints with chrome os is that the hardware is cheap and there are not any powerful apps. This is a nexus device for chrome os. They want developers to make more powerful apps. They even said that they do not expect this to sell well and they don't care if it does not. They're not trying to make a big profit off of this. They're paving the way for the next generation of Chromebooks. The price is a little bit high but that might be because of the screen.
