My old Asus Eeee Machine netbook finally kicked the bucket at the end of last week, I ordered a replacement/upgrade from Amazon; an Acer Chromebook:
A little longer and thinner than the old netbook, lighter, and possibly more fragile. We'll see how it works out. Never used Google's Chrome OS before; setup was dead simple, and since Google stores all of your information in its cloud, even your web brower bookmarks, just logging in with my Google account info has it ready for instantaneous use. The fact that the Chrome OS is Linux-based means I won't have to load the machine up with antivirus and other anti-malware apps. It doesn't necessarily mean that the machine isn't vulnerable to hackings or viruses, but it's far less likely than with a Windows box.
