Samsung and Google master cut-rate computing - Business - The Boston Globe

The newest Chromebook converts Hiawatha Bray into a believer
"Instead, the Chromebook delivers 11.6 inches of video real estate and a big, comfy keyboard. It comes with 16 gigabytes of flash memory for data storage, eliminating the need for a noisy, bulky hard drive.
It’s also got a low-end but serviceable webcam for videoconferencing, surprisingly decent stereo speakers, a flash memory card slot, a couple of USB ports, and an HDMI connection that will pump videos to a big-screen TV.
It’s all packaged in a sleek plastic case that’s roughly as thin as Apple Inc.’s $999 MacBook Air, and only a few grams heavier."
