Good news for consumers indeed. I love competiton and anything that will help with lower price is awesome. That Chromse OS is pretty interesting.
Dam thats hell cheap.
$249 notebooks sound great as long as they're reasonably fast. The netbook craze fizzled once everyone discovered that the Atom CPU was such a dog. I have an Asus 1201n netbook with a dual-core Atom and that thing is SLOW - even with an SSD and 4GB RAM.
