Crap product + Windows = low price
Nice product + Windows = average price

Nice product + MacOS = high price

Decent product + ChromeOS = dirt cheap price

What you pay for is the hardware and software. ChomeOS is opensource so they can put all their money into the hardware and still sell the product at a cheap price. Other manufactures churn out crappy products for budget users and nicer products for people looking for quality.

A computer does the same thing regardless what it looks like.

And Toshiba..don't forget them. only issue I have ever had after owning 3 thus far was a faulty mainboard which was replaced for free under warranty

you do get what you pay for. This laptop I'm on is of the "P" series higher end performance aside form the Qosimo((sp?)

Toshibas are solid and with good specs, but their screens leave a lot to be desired.

I got my Netbook for $399 (see sig. for specs). It's well built, feels like a premium laptop, and has great specs.
