But if you use MS edge browser, it can playback even 4K youtube videos(scaled down to screen size) smoothly. While chrome/firefox feel like 5fps video. The new atom chips are optimized for average users needs(browsing, videos etc) and these devices cost far less than chromebooks. I got lenovo 100s for $203 which is almost $130 less than any chromebook available here. I have to pay 65% more to get a chromebook. Last week Asus new laptop with z8300 was for $216. There is no reason to buy a chromebook over much cheaper windows laptops.
My Acer Chromebook came out late 2014, good to know that it'll get the Play store soon.
i think this merge of chrome and android is a good way to fight against the windows and macbooks
becuz the android on mobile is the first and biggest empire so with merging them , google can bit them again
Google should merge android and chrome os to get something like remix os

Buy a chromebook and you can only use .. Hmmm Chrome? See, totally not worth the upgrade.
Until now that is, hope having android apps added it could be better.

I had one of the better performance netbook back then and yet web surfing was a rather horrible experience even when i replaced it with SSD and 4GB ram. Could tell it was faster running stuff locally but the CPU and GPU performance just can't make it to give a smooth experience. Quite the irony that it was a call a netbook.
I would consider getting a chromebook if it was cheaper than windows laptops. Cheapest I could find in Australia is $329. While windows laptops are constantly on sales and I can get one for $250. (Got lenovo 100s 11" for $203 few months back).
