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 agree the OS is irrelevant. The applications are what is important and right now ChromeOS is severely lacking.

Why would anyone buy a Chromebook when for just a little more you can get a fully functional laptop that can run Chrome apps as well as millions of other native apps? I just don't get it.
