i am glad to see bigger chromebooks.

I see as a target for chromebooks people who mostly browse the web but have constant problems with viruses, other malware and/or just keeping their machines properly maintained.

most of the people I know who fit in the above category are very much big laptop and/or desktop people. netbook owners just tend to be a bit more technically inclined.

so if chromebook are to be marketed as ‘simpler’ computers bigger models are certainly in order. I would actually like to se 17in chromebooks as well as all-in-one desktops.

I can see some benefit to a larger Chromebook provided it has a removable battery and higher resolution for the bigger screen. Just my opinion / preference. ;)

i think the difference is you see a chromebook as a supplement to your other computers and/or as a traveling device.

the audience i am thinking of does not use their laptops outside of there homes, but they carry them to the computer shop a few times a year for virus cleanup’s. the main idea i have is for these people to eliminate windows computers from there life, but they are usually not prepared to give up a big screen. most of these people are not interested in resolution other than not liking the ‘tiny text’ they get without scaling up a high res screen.

more than anything though i see a really big market for inexpensive all-in-one family shared desktops running chromeOS. i have a small computer store and nothing comes in for service more than family shared desktops.
