I'm down with the $250 laptop with browser OS, but $1299? http://www.theverge.com/2013/2/21/4013480/google-chromebook-pixel This is an even bigger waste of money than the Surface Pro. Nice specs, tho. The only value is the 1TB of cloud storage for three years. At $50/mo, you are essentially getting the laptop for free plus $500 off. Although only if you were already willing to pay $50/mo for 1TB cloud storage.
