Chromebooks, Best-Selling Laptops
Who said that Chromebooks aren't popular? If you look at Amazon's list of the best sellers in the "Laptop computers" category, you'll find 4 Chromebooks in the top 11:
#1: Samsung Chromebook (57 days in the top 100) - out of stock
#5: Samsung Chromebook 3G (57 days in the top 100) - out of stock
#9: Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook (199 days in the top 100)
#11: Acer C7 Chromebook (6 days in the top 100)
Samsung's ARM Chromebook is also best selling laptop at Amazon.UK
France, Germany, Spain, Italy - sold out
I picked up my Chromebook last month, the Samsung model. It seems no one can keep these things in stock. I saw that Best Buy had some one day, so I rushed over. I had to wait a while because it hadn't yet been unloaded from the truck.
There are people who say "why would you want a Chromebook when you can have a tablet?" I have a Tablet, a Kindle Fire. Each device has its own strength and weaknesses. I'd much rather read a book on a tablet than on a Chromebook. But I would rather use the internet on a Chromebook than on a tablet. You can put a keyboard on a tablet, but that seems like an awkward solution. The Chromebook is going to be the right choice for everyone, but I'm happy with it.
