On the subject of the hardware specs.
Can I just point out to those of you that have lived under a rock for the past 5 or so years or have never actually used a Chromebook.
The hardware requirements and processes for Chromebooks are quite different from running Windows or Linux. Hence why the specs look low. When you are not running a huge monolithic OS that isn't designed to locally carry your entire anime collection around with you, you don't need that much.
