lk2fireone (194) I got a chromebook yesterday. The price was $250.
That was with a 32 GB SSD.
If I had gotten it with a 16 GB SSD, the price would have been $200.
Dirt cheap.
The chromebook has a mousepad, and a keyboard.
Not as nice as my desktop, but for $250, what do you expect.
This is an amazing PC.
It turns on in less than 10 seconds.
Shuts off in less than 5 seconds.
Don't have to worry about viruses, updates, whatever.
Will have to learn to use it.
But this is the PC for the next few years.
Cheap, easy to use.
I set up the chromebook in 10 minutes or less.
So much simpler than a regular desktop or notebook.
Don't have to worry about Microsoft software, updates, etc.
Tiny little thing.
Weighs less than 3 pounds.
A desktop or notebook can be useful, but for the price, convenience, ease of use, the chromebook is wonderful.

PS: I bought an HP notebook a few weeks back, with Win 8.1, for about $1,000.
Couldn't stand Win 8.1.
Finally returned the notebook.
I am so much happier with the chromebook.
Not only it so much less expensive, but it's also so much easier to use, and faster to use. Turns on in less than 10 seconds, turns off in less than 5-7 seconds.

If the notebook I bought had Windows 7, I would have kept it. But I couldn't stand Windows 8.1.

rearadmiral (322) I'm old-fashioned, but my primary computer is a desktop. If I wasn't such a porn user that would be different, but it allows a hard connection to the internet and has more horsepower for the money than any other option. I do have other options, but by far my PC is the primary computer I use.

Just bought me a new laptop (Toshiba) with Win7. Love it. 17.3 screen, 1 Tb hard drive, less than $1k.

I considered a desktop but couldn't really see any significant advantage.

I'm guessing the mfrs are moving away from desktops for home use...and in the early stages of moving away from full featured laptops.In 10 years the computer landscape will be quite different.

I wonder how the apps are on the Chromebook, esp. regarding Microsoft Office compatibility. (I hope the world will eventually move on to another standard, and thus really have standards, but I don't see it happening quite yet.)

Compatibility with Office, esp. Word, Excel, and PPT have been my biggest holdback on diving further into the newer portables. Have had a hell of a time with Apple stuff since they no longer play nice with Office (and vice versa).

Drooler, I'm not an expert on Chrome, since I just bought my first Chromebook a few days ago, and I am still learning how to use it.

But if you have a lot of Microsoft office documents that you use, you can use Microsoft Office Web Apps, for compability with your existing office documents. It's free for individuals, but not for businesses.

Otherwise, if you have no previous Microsoft office documents that you have to deal with, you can use the other free apps for Chrome.

Since Microsoft is giving the Microsoft Office Web Apps away for free, to hold onto their customer base (even those that are using Chrome), I would guess that there shouldn't be a lot of problems with using your older Microsoft Office documents with a Chromebook.

That's only a guess. Because personal experinence is the deal breaker.

I couldn't stand Win 8.1, because Win 7 was so much easier to use (after migrating from Win XP, which I really liked).

But some people are technically mobile, and maybe they even appreciate the new Win 8 OS.

But so far, at least, I really like the Chromebook. And it's so fucking cheap. And fast. And you don't have to worry about viruses, and software updates, etc. The software updates automatically, when you're connected to the web. But my desktop Win 7 has to shut down for updates, and then restart, and I'm always running virus scans, and the Chromebook just seems to be so much easier to use and problem free. At least so far.

I don't like the keyboard on the Chromebook, or the touchpad, so I added a wireless keyboard and mouse to the Chromebook.
That was easy to do, and only cost $40 for the Logitech Wireless Wave Combo Mk550 With Keyboard and Laser Mouse from Amazon.

So I'm good to go, as I learn to use the Chromebook.
