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.

They can sell anything they want. Product tying on the other hand has nothing to do with users' demand - it's purely serving MS interests.

It serving theirs and anyone who wants a laptop with Windows on it as well.

Trolling the shit out of every article (this one didn't even mention Microsoft) gets bloody irritating.

You are obsessed, it is rather sad really.

The "article" is just an ad, but the OSNews write-up did mention Redmond.

Yes, because of MS rebates and in violation of the antitrust laws which forbid product tying. But as I said above, if this trend is true (Chrome OS pushing out Windows), let's see how they quit their Windows tax enforcement. You seem to have a blind spot for Windows tax, and pretend that the problem doesn't exist. That's silly.

I'm sure Attorney General shmerl will sue Microsoft for Anti-trust any day now. OSNews is lucky to have legal experts like you.
