re: Google Chromebook, Chromebox: Visual Tour
I am a great admirer and fan of Chromebook but unfortunately price tag is a blocker for me to get one. I can't justify paying $400 + for it. Now if it comes down to under $200 I would certainly own a couple of these babies. Google I hope you are listening!!
