    No, they run apps from the Chrome web store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/c...e-ntp-launcher

    I've not put on a single app on the device, I simply run everything that I want from the web with this device.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I prefer my Nexus that I can use as navigation system or I can make free phone calls, can run an office system with Word, Powerpoint and Excel equivalents, etc. I have a Motorola bluetooth keyboard with trackpad which works very well.

    Yeah, we all have differing needs. I'm mostly just surfing the web and goofing around on forum sites such as this one in the evening. The $249 Chromebook is excellent for this, for me personally. When I need to run Word, PowerPoint or Excel, I always have my laptop or desktop. But I could run the Office web apps in a pinch on the Chromebook...they do work fine.

    This video is really cute. I am sure the kids will love Windows 8. They have very different needs than an old system guy like me.
