CNET: Chromebooks are cloud-computing laptops use Google's Chrome OS,
which is built on Linux under the covers but which actually runs
applications in the Chrome browser. (for $249 and up)

IMHO: Everything old is new again. Recall an earlier discussion

Chromebooks are more like dumb terminals of

And with the "cloud" being the "mainframe" running the apps
and having the data storage.
