Computerworld – Low-cost Chromebook computers are doing very well with retailers, in stores and online, and now make up a significant share of the low end market, said market research firm NPD Group.
Chromebooks that cost $300 or less account for anywhere from 20% to 25% of monthly sales of computers in this category, reports NPD.
I have my problems with Google, and with the way they do a lot of things. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Chromebooks, though—maybe solely because I was one the beta testers of the Cr-48, but a real soft spot nonetheless. I always thought they’d sell like crazy at the right price, and thought it was a little insane when the first models were priced in the $500 range.
