    I'm sure you will be able to. Anything on Android should work on Chromebook

    Apple has jumped the shark big time. Chromebooks outsold Macs 1Q 2016. They better get their price point in line with the rest of the world or its gonna be the apple of old.

    I don't think Apple's ever been bothered by being niche, I doubt they'll care to participate in a race to the bottom like Google and Windows have been doing, might be seen as beneath them.

    Chromebooks are a value device. Apple is premium. It's like saying Ferrari better get with the program because Toyota outsells them. I'd never pay $1300 for a pixel.

    Wrong. You haven't seen the latest models apparently. Hardware is hardware. I'm not paying apple an 800 premium for a fancy case. I think most people feel the same. For 400-500 you can get a premium Chromebook.

    I cant wait to bump this shit a year or two from now when everyone finally gets apple rehab.

    I wouldn't even buy a MacBook either. I think the Surface is a far better value.

    Every single person who has bought one based on my advice has said the exact same thing. "Us people" know what the fuck is up.

    Maybe. I've never used one. All I'm saying is for price/usability/simplicity/security/and anything else the average user needs a Chromebook is impossible to beat. Impossible. I'm not even an average user and I'll never use anything but my trusty ChromeOS in a laptop. Shivvys preist was giving out Communion at mass and handed him a Chromebook and said "Body of Christ".
