Google Chromebook: $250 laptop

Google has created the $250 laptop. Why do I see these as important? Well when a school is choosing whether to buy tablets (iPad) for $400 vs a laptop which has more functionality for $250, they are going to be getting full computers.

Features of this computer:

    • 11.6” display
    • 0.8 inches thin and 2.5 lbs
    • Over 6.5 hours of battery
    • Boots up in less than 10 seconds
