I think Chromebooks are great. They are cheap, fast laptops that can satisfy the computing needs of many users, if not for their primary computer, then as a secondary one. They are very secure and Chrome OS self-updates better than any other operating system. They startup and shutdown quickly, are lightweight, have no viruses, are great for sharing, and, if you shop around, you can find one that runs Android apps.
