In my mind the same issue is still there for Chromebooks that has been there from the start: They cost too much for what they are. You can purchase a laptop that can do everything it can do and more for less money, with the possible exception of being as light and elegant. While they continue to make incremental steps in the right direction, I am not on board yet. Having offline access is one of the most useful features, and goes a long way towards making a Chromebook something I would consider. I like the idea of embracing the cloud and doing away with unnecessary hardware, but I would like to see more cost savings as a result. They are still limited machines for the money. I would be more likely to get a tablet and a keyboard, to be honest.
