Acer's $199 Chromebook - How Low Can You Go?

TechtheWeek

Google's Chrome OS. A year ago, a Chromebook would have had you laughed at if you were to pull one out of your bag in your local Starbucks. Now though, with Chromebooks becoming far more accessible to the consumer (with two products under £229/$250), will we finally see the Chrome OS catch on? With the launch of this new Acer Chromebook for just $199, how can it not? (Acer, Google, Industry, PC hardware)

Update - the price of this laptop is £200 in the UK. What are your thought on this laptop and Chrome OS?

My thoughts?

It's a waste of time unless you ONLY plan on using it for browsing. And even then, a laptop for just browsing? Meh. I'd buy an Android tablet before a Chromebook for 200.

You could think of it as a tablet with an inbuilt keyboard. For £229 you won't find a tablet like this.

Its all around whether you like Chrome OS
