Google "Google's Chromebook was dismissed as a bare-bones laptop with limited appeal when it debuted two years ago. Now it's defying skeptics and gaining share as the rest of the personal-computer market shrinks. Chromebooks have in just the past eight months snagged 20 percent to 25 percent of the U.S. market for laptops that cost less than $300, according to NPD Group Inc. The devices, which have a full keyboard and get regular software updates from Google, are the fastest-growing part of the PC industry based on price, NPD said."

sorry, but is there anyting to back up his claims?
all i see is a piece of opinion

when i take a look at whats available in this lowest-price segment i don't get the feeling that thats a market with high grow rates
more like stagnant at best
