Hi, 19 May 2016it's not being childish, it's being practical
-AppleUserI never said it's not practical ;) it is, for schools and people on a budget looking for cheap simple device . ;) but when I read childish comments (and sometimes articles here) which gives the impression of "bigger market share" means "better" I cant stop but laugh.. ;)
Schools buying computers...what do you expect they'll buy...
Anonymous, 19 May 2016Surface pro has both. But a keyboard is not very useful in education anyway. A pen is more use... moreA surface pro is crazy expensive. What makes chromebooks appealing is their price. They can go lower than traditional (wintel) computers because manufacturers can use ARM SoCs that cost less, don't need cooling and consume less power.
What people in education want is a cheap (aka easily replaceable), portable computer that can be locked down, run office apps and a web browser. With Google backing the whole thing, it is just perfect for them.
people saying Apple will die can keep dreaming, the company is showing that they are not listening to their subscribers' demand, but they are still at the top with Samsung and Sony, how much more when they listen? Apple will never die
Windows getting outsold for PC/Laptops? you wish, I don't even like where the OS is now, but when Windows 10 gets completed, goodluck on MacOS and other OS out there

UnKnown-original, 19 May 2016If I install Google Chrome on my Windows PC, does that mean I'm running 2 OSs at the same time?Chrome is only a web browser, but Chrome OS would be a whole another thing. It's a real OS like Windows 10.
Anonymous, 19 May 2016Chrome OS is not the same as Google Chrome.Well, I can't really see a difference.
Techguy, 19 May 2016it's all about the pricesSchools only buy low cost tech
In 2-3 years: "Chrome OS devices have outsold Windows PCs in the US for the first time ever"
dukaki, 19 May 2016Cheap and laptop-like. People like their keyboards and trackpads it seems. If Apple wants to ... moreSurface pro has both. But a keyboard is not very useful in education anyway. A pen is more useful, it replaces pen and paper...
Techguy, 19 May 2016it has a keyboard And tablets have pens ...
Also tablets have keyboards too, have you ever used a surface pro? Or Pixel C? Or iPad pro?
Pretty much all tablets have keyboards have keyboards these days, but they also have pens, so much better for educational purposes...
Sun Sand, 19 May 2016And How so!!...is it because it has an apple logo & costs the most?The 13 inch Pro is good. (The 15 inch is terribly overpriced)
The base model costs 1300$ which is what the average windows ultrabook of the same quality sells for. Plus it has a 26 watt cpu with intel's iris graphics instead of the standard 15 watt cpu with intel hd graphics.

If Apple wants to take their marketshare back they need to fix the Air which they have long neglected... Maybe an 11-inch Air with the atom X7 for the price of an iPad?
Their whole iPad Pro as a laptop replacement is silly IMO.
