As many people have said, it's an amazing idea but the price simply doesn't cut it.
Touch-sensitive displays always drastically
increase the price, and with over 4 million pixels I'd bet that you're paying around $600 just for the screen.
I think that if +Google
had waited until what seems to be an inevitable merge with +Google Chrome
, consumers would see Chromebooks as much more powerful than the current perception of them. Right now, people would be hard-pressed to actually find a use for 4 gigs of RAM, an i5 processor, and a mindblowingly high-resolution screen on Chrome.
