    Even more of a reason not to buy a Chromebook. You can get a Windows 8 tablet and still get the core functionality all is one.

    Apart from the price difference, of course.
    You can't run Chrome on Windows RT, so you need the full fat, more expensive Surface.

    *slow clap* well done google, now the busy spinning circles gone when a page loads so you have no idea what the hell is going off if you are in full screen mode. the busy/loading icons only on the tab now.

    also some sites scrolling is broken when you open a dropdown.

    Scrolling is broken in a big way - had to disable horizontal scrolling on my mouse as otherwise the right third of any Chrome window was behaving as if I had CTRL held down.
