Chromebook - WSJ Article

The Wall Street Journal has a very good article on Chromebooks. The author does a good job of discussing the pro's and con's of using a Chromebook. One thing bothered me though. She kept making a point that Chromebooks cost in the range of $300-400. That's not quite right. In fact, the best selling Chromebook model is the Acer C720 and it is only about $200. The author also failed to point out that once you buy a Chromebook, you do not have to spend another dime to make it work for you. That is not the case on any other system (I should know since I have invested $100's in apps and software over the years). Chromebook is the least expensive computing system on the market. I think that's it's best selling point.

What do you think?
