If you live in the Chrome universe, and especially if you have a Chromebook, you know that Google has developed a Chrome Remote Desktop app, which allows you to use your Google credentials and a generated code to remotely access another computer running Google Chrome. Well, it seems that Google is developing an Android app that will be able to tap into that system, and let you control a remote computer from your mobile device...

Considering the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook has been the best selling laptop on Amazon for almost a full year now...yeah, I'd say people actually use those things. I love mine, as it and a tablet have made it pointless to own a full Windows/OSX computer anymore.

It is an excellent budget PC but if you need real power stick to windows 7 quad core intel laptops with a ssd.

Obviously you've never used one.

In about 8 months, Chromebooks have captured 20-25% of the under $300 PC market in the U.S. I use one almost every day for work.

They are inexpensive computers that do a lot more than you'd think. The web is a very powerful platform. And, not many people really need much more than a web browser these days.

It's true. I'm actually using the $250 Samsung one right now as we speak. I was a skeptic at first but after purchasing it I've found that I use it way more than I thought I ever would.

In fact, I could see myself buying one even at ~600 for a 1080p screen, better battery, and more RAM to keep more tabs open.
