Google "Google's Chromebook was dismissed as a bare-bones laptop with limited appeal when it debuted two years ago. Now it's defying skeptics and gaining share as the rest of the personal-computer market shrinks. Chromebooks have in just the past eight months snagged 20 percent to 25 percent of the U.S. market for laptops that cost less than $300, according to NPD Group Inc. The devices, which have a full keyboard and get regular software updates from Google, are the fastest-growing part of the PC industry based on price, NPD said."

Its dumb. ChromeOS barely even registers on any kind of web usage statistics. This is perhaps strong sequential growth which is good and may indicate a trend, but its by no means taking the PC world by storm.

Even Surface shipments likely outnumber Chromebooks. Thats somehow a colossal failure while this is a roaring success.

It's probably true that they have a massive YoY growth!
