I find tablets kinda useless, I have a netbook which I never used as Acer had the genius idea of endowing it with a slow SSD and Windows XP, which are incompatible... Sort of revived with PeppemintOS Linux but it was a nightmare... A complete hard drive surgery would render it usable again but I don't have the time... What I mean with that preamble is that although I've been burnt before I really like the concept of the Chromebook; it would take (a) some investment in time to work with Google Docs and such and (b) and International keyboard with french and spanish accents at least to make me willing to experiment again - a fully compatible Linux distro like Ubuntu, with an easy to install process would make it almost a no brainer.
