16 GB of Storage
"miserly 16 GB of storage"

This made me laugh. I know Chrome OS is meant for people who want to live in the cloud, but wow, miserly indeed.

Still, it's interesting to see Chrome OS expanding into more form factors. There are also some PC-like form factors running Android. I don't see these developments disrupting business systems right away, but lots of movement in the consumer sphere, especially at the lower end of the price spectrum.

Re: 16 GB of Storage
For my wife that does almost nothing on a computer except use the internet and play facebook games this would be ideal.  In my case though it would be almost useless.

 Nice machine for people that don't really use a computer other than for watching movies, internet or email though. It will probably do those 3 jobs just fine.   It will be hard pressed to beat a low priced laptop or good pad for the same jobs though.

Re: 16 GB of Storage
16 GB of storage fits the future-thinking idea of the non-PC where someone has only their tablet and phone as their computing device. There are a lot of 16 GB iPads out there that are the computer for their owner. Over time, I believe wider adoption of "the home without a PC" will prompt manufacturers to move up to 32 GB or more as the base model instead of the 16 GB of today.
