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."

Why?

I rather not make my own Chromebook, in fact I will never ever buy a Chromebook and I consider Chromebooks to be complete and utterly shit. At least for me.

To make a pun of what Serghei Brin said, I will not make my own Chromebook because I will torture me.
