Perhaps I sounded snarky, but I truly did mean "wow". I was surprised to hear of a new Chromebook from a company that hasn't made computers before, esp. with a processor from a company also an unknown. We do have Acer Chromebooks with Arm processors (such as the one Raymond mentioned a while back). 

Haven't you ever wondered what it would take to turn an old laptop you have on hand into a Chromebook?

It might not be the top of the line, but many schools aren't close to providing devices to students for ubiquitous computing.  How many schools are currently 1:1?  does being a 1:1 have an advantage on SBAC testing? does 1:1 support students in preparing for college and career?  I think there is a huge inequity in the state where some students are digital learners, where other's are left in the past. 
It bothers me to do trainings with educators and when they are done they say, that it was great but I can't do any of that in my classroom because we don't have enough computers. 
A price point of $149 there should be no excuses.

Google pushes Chrome OS software, with or without Chromebooks


Google's Chromebit turns any computer monitor with an HDMI port into a full-blown computer.
