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.

Unlike FreeDOS, ChromeOS is actually useful. Complete with web browsing, email, word processing etc.

Unlike ChromeOS, FreeDOS is actually useful without internet connection. Complete with word processing, games, editors, programming languages and internet access is also possible if really required.

Yep. There's never been a web browser, email client, or word processor for DOS. No sir. ;)
