I am not a power computer user, all I do is browse online, google docs and importing of pics and resizing in MS Paint(is there something similar for Chromebooks?). I picked up a Toshiba Chromebook off craigslist for $50 and it is really great. It looks like Macbook Air and has a nice keyboard, a backlight would be nice but cant complain for the price. The battery life is really good. I think a computer like this would be more than sufficient for most people. I really like how you can add different accounts and switch between them very fast. If you need to restore it is is a very fast process, I am not sure why my kid's school doesnt use these instead of Macbook Air's.
