I think the two being offered are only going to appeal to early adopters, just because of the price. If they get dropped into an Acer One body, and sell for 250$, then they will appeal to a much bigger audience.
I'm curious if any businesses or schools will bite on the lease plan Google is offering. That seems like a hell of a deal, and a Chromebook is the ultimate computer to use to protect users from themselves
I got one and I must say it's very useful, but I also have a Xoom... It's great it can be laggy at times and Angry Birds isn't really playable in HD. Still, I could imagine how it could be useful to someone on the go, but I have my tablet and phone for that, so maybe if you don't have one of the two it could be very useful.
