Chromebook

Here is an interesting quote from a story about Chromebooks:

"Chromebooks haven't become objectively better than Windows PCs, and they're not selling by the truckload. But Chromebooks are ready for mainstream adoption. They're starting to make many of us realize how non-essential a $1000 laptop is becoming."

Laptop sales are falling and more and more people are either buying a tablet, using their smartphone, or buying a Chromebook. Those are the only sectors in technology that are growing. Desktop sales have fallen. The market for high end computers is dead. The future is cloud or web based applications and internet connecting devices. At $200 Chromebook is one of the least expensive ways to take advantage of this trend and thus will continue to grow. It is also interesting to note how many computer manufacturers are adding Chromebooks to their lineup. The future looks good for Chromebook.

What do you think?
