    Does anyone have one? Do you like it? Likes and dislikes please?

    If I understand it is basically a cloud based computer only correct? If I need to run windows then I have to run VM ware or some virtualization no? I know Google has done a great job with "Microsoft Like" apps, google spreed sheets and such, but the features are lacking compared to Office.

    I can't wait until Google overtakes windoze completely, but it will be a few more years.

    Yes, it's cloud-based computing. No, you cannot run Windows in a virtualized app. Chromebook's don't run a full operating system. You just have a browser. That's it. You have Google Docs.
