Looks like Macbook Air has better deal = Same specs but $400 less with a 128GB > 256GB Hard drive. Chrome offers theirs with 32-64GB hard drive.

I wish I knew what Air you are referring to. The Macbook Airs that apple sells doesn't have 2560x1700 resolution, Gorilla Glass multi-touch screen, and etched-glass trackpad. Please link me that Macbook air?

But in all honesty, Some people online are thinking Google is doing this as more of a "Look what companies can do if they try!" something they have done before. Yes, it does seem a bit high and to kinda defend the storage, they are trying to push Cloud, which is why they give you a free 1TB of cloud storage.

For the sake little bitty more res, greesy screen and tiny hard drive. Maybe it looks idle for some?

Frankly I'd rather have a Surface Pro for that money, so much more you can do with it.
