Chromebook - Underpowered?

Are Chromebooks underpowered? I use an Acer C720 which has a Haswell-Celeron. The Celeron chip set is one of the slowest in the Intel line, but I have not been disappointed with it's speed. Chrome is a light OS and runs quick enough for all I do with it. In the Chromebook world, high powered chips are not all that necessary. If all you are doing is surfing the internet, checking and sending e-mail, and using web based apps, you don't need a high end chip set. You just need good enough. Why spend the money when it does not buy you much of a difference?

What do you think?
