The Chromebooks look nice for certain situations, and I've been tempted to pick one up.
But why haven't there been any good ChromeBoxes?? I have unused monitors and keyboards sitting around, and there's plenty of cases which need a larger screen and a real keyboard.
If you can sell a full notebook with LCD, keyboard, and battery for $199, where is the $49 Chromebox?
Samsung's efforts have been a complete joke. Over $300? Really? Dell sells "real" computers for less. With Windows, even.
Supposedly the new Chromebox from ASUS is based on Intel's "Next Unit of Computing". That thing starts at about $200 with no RAM.
If Roku can sell an ARM box capable of decompressing Full HD streams for $49, why can't Google get one to run ChromeOS?
