re: Chromebook Availability Expands Amid Sales Questions
I've been following Chromebooks for a couple of years and while at first I thought they were too limited, particularly when they were priced similarly to mid-tier Windows laptops, Samsung's $249 Chromebook was hard to resist when one of my laptops started having issues. When I honestly examined how I used my laptop, I realized that the Chromebook fulfilled most, if not all of my needs. After several weeks of use, I'm impressed. For a more complete picture of my assessment of the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook read:

This has been one of my most satisfying tech purchases in years.

re: Chromebook Availability Expands Amid Sales Questions
Yet another article citing Digitime's totally unreliable figure from "unnamed sources". There is no reason to believe this figure is anything but pure speculation on the part of the original author as there is no reputable market analyst to back it up.

Furthermore, saying the Google "claims" the Chromebook has been the number one best-selling laptop on Amazon for 149 days implies that it is not a verifiable fact, which it is.
