Chromebooks

Fresh from Google’s IO conference comes today the news that notebooks that run the Chrome operating system will be available June 15 and they will be quite cheap (less than $500 for one with a 12 inch screen; I saw diverging reports on its price, $429 and $499). They will also be rentable, $20 a month for education use, $28 a month for business use. They will have Verizon WiFi (not sure what Verizon will ask for data access and what usage limits it will slap on). This could be big. I can see having one of these for all travel. Maybe I will not ever get an iPad or a MacBook Air, like I have been tempted many times to do.

UPDATE: more information in this post.
