    Google, Samsung to sell Chrome laptop for $249


    Google and Samsung are introducing a lightweight laptop computer with a price similar to smaller tablet computers. The computer unveiled on Thursday will sell for $249 and run on an operating system revolving around Google's Chrome Web browser .

    Like other so-called Chromebooks, this laptop doesn't have a hard drive. It functions like a terminal dependent on an Internet connection to get to information and applications stored in
    large data centres run by Google Inc or other technology providers.

    And then the internet goes out again, hey, look at my pretty door stop! I imagine there are a few people it could be useful for, if I have to, I guess.

    Too limited in it's capabilities for $249. At that price I'd rather have a Nexus 7, Kindle Fie HD or even a netbook.

    Just for grins, call around a few days after these become available and see if the sales folks even know what it is.

    One of our local news reporters uses the catch phrase "Don't waste your money" - for $249 I can do a lot better.
