Chromebooks will soon give low-end Windows PCs a run for their money | PhoneDog. I share this author's love and need of a full Windows PC. I use many legal apps that are either Windows only, or which have both Windows and Mac variants; but, both of which require a competent PC or Mac. I have solved the stand alone PC versus laptop problem by switching to an ultralight 2 in 1 PC; but, I am still intrigued by the cheapness, lightness, and mobility of the Chrome PCs. Now that they will be able to run any app in the Google PlayStore, they will be cheap competitors for many PCs, and I suspect we won't be seeing the cheap notebooks that proliferate in many big box stores anymore. If you are on a budget, you will want to look at the new Chromebooks.
