The ThinkPad X131e Chromebook simplifies software and security management for school administrators and provides students and teachers with quick access to thousands of apps, education resources and storage." 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.

I wasn't that into the idea of ChromeOS when it came out but increasingly they're catching my eye. Interesting when they say the specs don't make it a powerful machine. My first laptop - and I wrote a book with it - was PIII with 4G on the hard drive and 555Mhz on the processor. So by that comparison, these Chromebooks are nice and fast.

I was tempted by the Samsung one but Lenovo makes great hardware. Maybe I'll give it a look.
