" There's also 30GB SSD storage, 3 USB ports, 1 HDMI port, a memory card reader and a 1.3 megapixel webcam "
How is supposed ChromiumOs to use USB / sd reader / HDMI ?
For what I've seen, ChromiumOs can't handle this - the underlying linux can.
I think this is only a bad commercial advice for a well web-oriented netbook; which would run fine under PeppermintOS or Xubuntu or a web-oriented linux distro.
But it isn't designed for ChromeOS
