A fellow TechLore editor recently picked up a CR-48 Chromebook running Google Chrome, and has since been sharing mcuh about his experience using Google's browser/quasi OS combo. Once I got past my initial "shiny gadget I don't have jealosy moment," I was surprised to hear a fellow tech geek get so excited about so little. It's a notebook that doesn't do everything a notebook does, yet people are clamoring for devices like this.
Below are several things I've heard him (and others) while telling me all about their low power computing device and their reasoning for believing that these devices are superior to the notebook. And of course, why I don't get it.
"I've been working for a few hours this morning, and it says I have 6 hours of battery left. I could work all day with this."
