    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.

    Think beyond today.

    One's a gimped notebook (netbook?) that's really only useful for enterprise use.

    The other represents the future.

    Apple didn't build a data centre to store stuff from the garage, by the way.

    True that the iPad represents the future, but I am talking about right now. Also the future seems to look like cloud computing, as much as I don't like that future.
