Does that mean that people aren't using their Chromebooks at all, or that they are not using them in the way that Google had hoped, that is, logging into Googledocs?
I was considering buying a Chromebook as a backup computer about a month ago, and even if I had, I was only planning on using it on a semi-emergency basis anyway. If it would have served satisfactorily on that basis, and I'm sure it would have, it would still have been a "success", even though little used.
There are a torrent of laptops available on the market now that are too weak to be able to support Windows 7 that serve just fine with Ubuntu (Linux), and I bought one of those for that purpose. BTW, it is possible to install Ubuntu on a Chromebook, so many types of useful work can be done even without an internet connection.
The thing I like most about the Chromebook is that most versions use SSD's rather than HDD's, which means there is one less fragile laptop thing to worry about.
