Hi all,

Chromebooks were better in theory than reality.

Take care,

A Laptop With Its Head in the Cloud

You can say all kinds of nice things about Googleís Chromebook laptop concept. You can say itís ahead of its time. Or that itís thinking way, way outside the box. Or that, as failures go, at least this one swung for the fences.

Last year, Google made limited quantities of the CR-48, a gorgeous, sleek, prototype black laptop that it sent to journalists and bloggers, seeking feedback. Its hope was that, eventually, real laptop companies would manufacture Chromebooks. Tomorrow, the first one goes on sale: the Samsung Series 5 ($500 with cellular, $430 Wi-Fi only).
