Lenovo is the third OEM to jump into ChromeOS. Chromebooks have been doing well on Amazon, apparently, too. Android tablets, iPads, the Mac, and now Chromebooks - it must be rainy in Redmond.

If it's cheaper than the windows tax one, then replacing chromeos with a linux distro makes this a good option.

Also I wonder if chromeos isn't easier to secure and lockdown for use than a normal windows install.

Btw I recently got a x130e off the lenovo outlet. The keyboard is just amazing on these things.
