Chromebooks – Wall Street Journal Review
Walter Mossberg at the WSJ reviews the “radical” Chromebook – with no installed software and very limited storage.
Could you get by on an internet connection, cloud based applications, and cloud storage?
The bottom line from the WSJ: Chromebook may represent the future of computing, but right now it is too limited and a bit buggy for mainstream users. WSJ also points out that plenty of comparably priced laptops compete (price range $450-$500).
Apple laptops are pricey, and Windows devices still require maintenance, and as a student you may need access to more than the cloud.
