    Wow, thouight this thread would red hot.
    Can I have some tumbleweed with my chromebook please.

    The haters will be upset at the lose of control , but the hardware is unlocked from start.
    The hardware will fall in price dramatically
    But why we can buy win7 netbooks with 1gb ram and a ultra skinny linux netbook with 2gb ram is a question i cannot currently answer.

    I think we will see a return to the early days of netbooks, 8gb SSDs lots of corners cut etc
    But they will be filthy filthy cheap

    FBers will rejoice

    People cannot backup there data, I mean they really can't, theyb are just not paranoid enough.
    For most of the population, this is about right.

    I don't think folks should carry about large amounts of data, unless it is fully encrypted.

    why red hot?

    the fact you can only lease the chrome books for three years at a pop, making it more expensive than a less restrictive offering is erm, pointless for anyone who can must $300 or even just that much credit.

    their music system isn't really all the great is it? I mean hasn't grooveshark kinda offered that already for the syncyness? not to mention Zune Pass kinda pisses all over it.....

    Leasing is for Education and Business
    Consumers can buy out right

    Hardly. Grooveshark is on pretty dodgy legal ground as far as I can work out, and Zune Pass is all about renting music.

    If you don't want to rent your music, but just want to make the music you already own more accessible, then the google option is much better, on the basis that it should be far cheaper.
