Google Introduces new $249 Chromebook

We are a fan og the Google Chromebook here on Geezam.com but the biggest snagging point for us so far has been the price. $400+ for what many critics describe as a a”pseudo laptop” is too expensive especially with an abundance of tablets, Windows netbooks and even some laptops in that price range.

Evolution Of The Netbook – Asus Eee Pc 1015PEM Review

It has been a little over a year now since I have stepped in the mobile computing universe I have always been a strong desktop user and didn’t have or in some cases see the need for having a laptop not to mention thier prices which were not all that  attractive to begin with, so the closest thing I had to mobile computing was my smartphone.

I have been using desktops for a long time and I decided I wanted something with some mobility several items came to mind tablets, netbooks, laptops etc, but in the end I decided to get a netbook because it had the best of tablets and the laptop.

Did you even check the specs of your CS4 or Maya before trying to run it on your Netbook wait a minute did you even check the specs on your Netbook?
