I like using chrome because of the clean simple interface, but I miss the power and application support of my Mac or PC.

Caesar returns to the sales pitch: Chrome OS keeps getting better with each OS update, every 6 weeks or so
5/6/2014 5:15:51 PM
Hopefully we see some more powerful Chromebooks announced today. We're still in the "setting the stage" portion of the press conference though.
5/6/2014 5:15:57 PM
Keep in mind, however: Microsoft is fighting back with $300-ish tablets (mostly 8- to 10-inch) running full Windows 8.1. Many using these same Intel Bay Trail and Celeron processors.

5/6/2014 5:18:11 PM
I agree with Eric. Killer feature for me is the 4G connectivity in the Chromebook Pixel.
