Chrome OS gets a Refresh and New Hardware

I love the idea of Google’s Chrome OS, but I just don’t see how it’s better than a regular, old Windows/Mac desktop, or what the test case would be for using one when the iPad exists? I would love to test one of these out for a week just to see if it could function as my primary machine. Still, if this forces Microsoft to make Windows easier, lighter, and more manageable, then I’m all for it.

Anyway, Google made some major tweaks to the OS and partnered with Samsung to improve the hardware running it.

If Chrome OS can get some native applications to run on its framework, then we might be talking, but why would anyone pay more than $300 just to have a browser? That makes no sense.
