maybe i will try chromebook. windows 8(surface pro) seems to be a failure. at least i will save some money.
Have been hearing some good things about chromebook
First of all, Windows 8 is much more than just Surface Pro. There are many other tablets to choose from, with many other (and sometimes better) docking solutions.
Second, if Windows 8 is a failure, Chromebooks are an epic catastrophe. Very low marketshare, not very powerful... it's like Google said "Let's make netbooks, but make them even less powerful and less useful".
Third, it's unclear why Google wouldn't just put Android on touch-enabled Chromebooks. Why two different operating systems? Why is Chrome OS even needed... why didn't they add this functionality to Android instead? Why can't you dock your Android tablet with a keyboard and mouse and get Chrome OS?
Finally, if a Chromebook fulfills all your needs, so would a Windows RT-based tablet (or laptop) like the Surface RT... and you'd get that long battery life and cheaper prices.
