Does anyone else agree with the statement that a Chromebook is like an iPad in the cloud? I think the Chromebook is nice but nothing special, it is basically a browser that can run apps. The iPad is basically the same thing, it just runs apps. Lets be honest, neither are for real computing and neither have a powerful operating system. Both are more for consumption rather than production. While the iPad has its advantages and the Chromebook has its advantages they really aren't that different.
