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 love the meaningless marketing drivel

Chromebooks cost less than most high end tablets and according to the IDC, require 69 percent less labor to deploy and 92 percent less labor to support.

I love it when marketing droids try to exactly quantify gains from a given product. "This product is now 56% more awesomer!" Not 55%, or 57%. No, it's exactly 56%. Does anybody fall for this kind of bullshit?

While I see your point, It does depends how well time is managed.
