Google "Both hardware- and software-wise, [Chromebooks] are nothing special: You can download Chrome OS's open source brother, Chromium OS, for free -- and at around $400 for a Chromebook, you would certainly expect some better hardware than what Samsung and Acer are offering. In fact, for around $300 you can get a cheaper and more powerful netbook with Windows 7 pre-installed -- and it only takes about 30 minutes to wipe Windows and install Chrome OS yourself."

Have I ever mentioned how annoying sites like "extremetech" are, where they seem to think that three paragraphs of content in a tiny little box in the middle of the screen is too much... since it cuts into the space available for adverts any user with a brain has blocked?

Of course that the site NEVER seems to actually finish loading... ever...
