All sarcasm aside, I'm genuinely curious—who's the demographic for this? One of the first rules of business is to identify a customer base before designing a product. Someone give me some details of the age, socioeconomic status, vocations and avocations of folks who would think a ChromeOS device is pretty neat.
Perhaps the less-active elderly? Many of them are supposedly looking for an entirely turnkey solution with zero administration and zero risk of malware. Needing to be net-connected isn't likely to bother them, and their needs are mostly limited to communications and personal data processing, which this platform should handle fine. There's a lot of them, and in the US at least they tend to be reasonably affluent but not extravagant spenders.
Now to get rich designing elder-centric webapps for ChromeOS, LOL.
