The ChromeBook 'WebTop'
Perhaps one of the year's most sought after devices will be the ChromeBook, a notebook computer unlike any other ever made. Designed with just enough hardware and know-how to launch a browser and access the internet, Google's dream machine assumes a world in which every living piece of data will only exist on the web, and that the devices people use to access that data will be completely irrelevant. To me initially manufactured by Acer and Samsung, ChromeBooks will run the open source ChromeOS, and will cost between $400 and $500, despite lacking most of the capabilities of the average a laptop computer. General availablity is set for June 15.
