Hardware, Embedded Systems "Meet the new ThinkPad X131e Chromebook: A fast booting, highly customizable laptop PC built with rugged features for the daily rigors of K-12 education. 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.

@project_2501 - yeah, right. Just like the hardware became irrelevant. That's why everyone's using Acer. Or Gateway. Or ZTE Chaung Guang whatever [no offense, vendors! I'm sure some of your hardware is actually good. I'm just describing the trends]. [sarcasm off]

Seriously, I always liked ThinkPads. Beautiful, practical, durable hardware. Newer TPs are kinda different from the older ones, but where is development there need to be some trade-offs.
It's still great. I only hope it won't be tied to Google ChromeOS.
