But.. Why would you want to use Chrome OS exept for its lower prive point? At $699 you can buy an older Surface Laptop with better screen, bigger SSD, more usability and better compatibility. You still can run all the Google Apps but so much more. Yes, battery life may be an important factor, but then again.. $699? And why would you care about a better processor? Chrome OS and its hardware-lineup still feel like beta, but I get the appeal of these devices and hope they figure out, where they want to go from there down at Google.

@Tim C I think must is an exaggeration, but because so many devices are touch-enabled nowadays, folks that only have a phone or never owned a traditional laptop would have a much easier time. I think of older people and tablet use. Artists could benefit from drawing directly on the screen. I imagine student work could see benefits as well. Ever try annotating a pdf? lol

Ай мурун

@jon wik exactly! Because 90% of people do NOT need more than that, which would only complicate what little computing they do. I used to do sites and all manner of things but now I don't and rarely if ever find a chromebook lacking. Sometimes I need to find a different way to do something but generally what I can't do I don't need to do. So I just open it, sign in, save things online, and that's it. I regularly drown laptops somehow so... Get another chromebook, sign in, and... There you go, it's all back where it was. People who criticize Chromebooks for being incapable of doing anything are generally devs and/or people who have never used one. I had a Pixelbook for 2+ years I think and now need to find something new. It might be the Samsung though I wish it was higher end, I think they dropped the specs too low. I like the HP c1101 or whatever it's called? Nice specs anyway.

@RoshanGamer never said it made sense. I have no idea why they made those choices other than to cut costs. I'm sure there are better profit margins at the $999 price level, but you'll sell a LOT more units at around $499. So it's not ULTRA-premium, but still up there with other premium Chromebooks like the Pixelbook Go.
