First real-world usage figures suggest Chromebooks are struggling

ZDnet - When the initial batch of Chromebooks hit the market nearly two years ago, some thought these low-cost devices running Google's cloud-centric Chrome OS could be a Windows killer. NetMarketShare just started measuring Chromebook usage this month, and the first reported numbers are startlingly low.

The story is too old to be commented.

Chrome OS thought to be a 'Windows killer'? Really? Not going to happen and now the statistics back it up.

The Chromebook dosent seem to add any functionality that isn't already in a budget net book at roughly the same cost or potentially less.

Until someone proves otherwise I find them weak and pointless

I don't see the point in this os. But if windows 8 is benign called a flop then chrome is an even bigger flop.

For me Apple and Google now need to take a leaf out of Microsoft's book and look at getting chrome os and android to work on both touch and none touch devices as one os rather than 2 and apple need to do the Same with osx and ios
