    Well, touch-screens are gaining more popularity in general, the next wave of P.C.-Buyers will make the previous waves envious after they’ve showed (bragged about) this to their friends and family, so we can see this selling Windows 8.1 (Blue).

    Let’s see, a ChromeBook with limited features, no apps, no compatibility, an unproven OS, limited functionality, requires an always on connection.
    Or, for the same price, a full OS, a real computer, millions of apps, touch screen, compatible with millions of add on devices, apps that work without an always on connection.
    Remind me again how ChromeBook is going to take over the world?

      But if you read ZDnet only, you’ll get the impression it has already taken over the world. LOL!
