    Default Does anyone have one of these?

    I saw this product on an advertisement on the RTA site, but I've never seen anyone with one. It's an interesting way to market a stripped-down laptop and in an odd way it is appealing to me. I have one of the latest Toshiba laptop wonders -- blazing fast in terms of CP power -- runs on Windows 7 -- but I have so many programs it's pretty slow booting up. I can adjust the start-up menu, of course, but a laptop that is optimized to run only web browsers is interesting to me. iPad performs a similar function, but I've always liked to have a tactile keyboard when working in the field.

    Has anyone seen one of these, Chromebooks, being used?

    CNET.com

    NY Times.com

    Not looking too good, Mark.

    Default Whoa! That's harsh

    George,

    Thanks for finding and posting these links.... Yeah, it looks like Google has laid another egg...

    Too bad, I like the notion, but the reality is looking....like you said.... pretty bad.
