ZeroCorpse: Laptops are a dying breed. It won't be long before everything is a tablet with an optional wireless keyboard.


No. We'll all be wearing those Google goggles and touching the tiny buttons with our lizard tongues.

Right...

And then, someone will have the novel idea of making a tablet with a hinge, which will attach the keyboard permanently to the screen.   And then you can rest the keyboard on your legs.   But since this would then throw the weight off, we'll put all the components down under the keyboard for the sake of stability.

This is an amazing idea..... what SHOULD we call it?

I have one of the new ARM based Chromebooks, and really enjoy it. It's nice when I want something I can type on and I know I'll have net access, and the fact it keeps in sync with my desktop browser is a plus, too. But it was $249, not $1399.

Do I want one of these? Sure, kinda. It's gadget-lust worthy, absolutely. It's good looking hardware, it's got some neat features, and I actually like ChromeOS because nine times out of ten, I really -do- just need a web browser when I'm working mobile. And if I don't, I take out my quad-core i7 beast of a laptop with 16 gigs of RAM and two hour battery life.

But for anything more than say, $600-700? No. Damn. Way.
