no network = nice door stop
maybe an infusion of HTML5 and Unicorn spit will help but right now if my Cr48 can't find a network it's a paperweight.
Sun tried the whole "the network is the computer" nonsense and now they are part of a database selling yatch broker... hopefully Google won't fall for the same bull
The Chrome centric, extentions enhanced, lightweight and great battery life experience is good... but I like to work offline (there are still places - like planes - where WiFi isn't guaranteed or is expensive) and the paradigm of opening a new tab to fire up a calculator and having to toggle from one to the other is just a pain
Oh and ChromeOS as a media platform right now... sucks. Limited codec support, no DRM and a really unstable Flash means that sites like Hulu, Netflix or even youTube are pretty poor experiences
