    Default Chromebook, why would anyone want it?

    http://gizmodo.com/5985832/chromeboo...o-counterpunch

    It's $1300-$1400 for 32gb-64gb of storage. And it's a browser, with the laptop as a sort of extreme plugin for said browser.

    So, anyone lining up to buy it?

    I would get one if it was about 1/3 of that price.

    Sure, I imagine lots of people would in that case, haha. (Then again, there's still the problem that it's just a browser, no other OS...)

    nah... around $99 - $150 would be my price point.

    Edit: actually, that's a new one... much more impressive than the first. still, not for $1400. Only 64GB? The Cloud don't cut it.
