Too bad it's true. Macbooks are overpriced for the specs they provide, you can pretty much get the same specs and use from a Windows laptop for $300 to $500 less.
"MacOS Experience" is just a stupid excuse to charge excessive prices. Don't forget Macbooks (especially the new ones) have poor to horrible repairability.
SD820 with 4GB/6GB RAM would sufficient for Chrome OS.
Mine is a crappy Intel with 2GB RAM ... it running perfectly fine for the designed for tasks.
Plus it has the Play store.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2017People still use tablets? lolYes of course they do & just to point out, a chromebook is not a tablet.

They use high end ones, and ask a high end price, that's just how it works. The price of a MacBook Pro might be a bit higher than the cheapest fat plastic acer notebook you can get, but then, this applies to every other competitor. You can't just look at the CPU, you have to look at the whole device. Same applies to phones. The iPhone 8 has the best SoC in its price range, yet isn't the best phone to buy because it has not the best display, really good but not the best speakers, a little aged design, and so on.
I hope I made it clear that I'm not a fanboy of anything, just trying to stop your fanboyism.
This will be a privacy nightmare. Why do we need to be always connected with our PC which has a lot of our data which phones don't have?

It becomes questionable only when companies demand top-price for mediocre to average or outdated specs (*cough* Macbook *cough*).

More towards the companies selling these chromebook like devices with limited ram, very extremely limited flash storage, capable yet limited mobile soc's compared to full grade cpus, and lacking many types of drives and normal pc compatible things....
But costing just as much as a laptop that has all that and more.
Why not? If it means better performance to battery life ratio, then it's good. Anyway, Chromebooks don't require those insane specs, as long as it has a decent SoC and good amount of RAM to run multiple tabs. Some Chromebooks run on tablet processors anyway like the Asus ChromeBook C201. Hopefully it won't lead to really expensive Chromebooks like the PixelBook.
