Consider the Chromebook 303 to be a 12" tablet with a physical keyboard built-in. Compared to an identically powered Nexus 10, the Chromebook is twice as heavy, twice as thick, and half the resolution. It uses Chrome for the OS, whereas the Nexus uses Android. They both have the same storage, but the Chromebook has a card slot for further expansion. Price wise, the Chromebook is nearly 40% ($150) cheaper.

I can live with these "shortcomings" if the price drops to $199 over Black Friday.
