A large portion of consumers have repeatedly stated the Chromebook is exactly what they want. It's cheap, handles basic computing needs (word processes, etc), handles online streaming, and is nearly virus proof with little to no learning curve. There is also no slow degrade of speed over time as your not installing any software. For a lot of non-techies, it's a dream come true.

Looking forward to getting a few more bucks saved up to get my wife another as she's used her old Chromebook into the ground (the monitor is literally held on with tape as it was a beta product and she's a rough user).

You may not agree, but I find it hard to believe you formed your opinion on the realities of what the common computer user wants.

All you need is competing noise. Get a large fan and turn it up, most of the outside noises will be drowned out.

Also, a website like http://rainfor.me/ helps me a lot when I find myself wandering off into my thoughts.

If you listen to music and the voices are too distracting, just listen to good movie scores, classical soundtracks, or something orchestra based like http://open.spotify.com/user/1225153336/playlist/174h1jI74KgCR30U60E5Wt or http://open.spotify.com/user/1225153336/playlist/0zfVN0HOmVKz5CVDNWigXg. I find when I'm programming or studying, having complete silence is great. When I can't achieve that, then I need background white noise and voiceless music.

Just some thoughts based on what I've learned since attending College.
