Chromebooks have landed...

So as you will probably know Google has taken the mobile OS market by storm, well know they have tried their hand at a desktop OS ironically named Chrome OS or Chromium. It is as much of the world tech is going, up and away towards the clouds, this OS requires a data connection to run be it WiFi, or 3g you will have to have it a down fall you decide, read more below to see what all the white fluffy Google chat has been about.
