Soon, the laptop bag will cost more than the laptop. This same thing happened with Microsoft Office, to some extent: a license for Office can (or used to?) run more than the actual computer itself; now I guess it’s mostly free-ish, with a chance for a marginally more expensive upgrade.

PC Sales May Climb, Thanks to Businesses
I’m guessing from the article it’s from Gartner: Google’s Chromebooks – manufactured by Samsung, Lenovo, Hewlett-Packard and Acer – topped 2.1 million unit sales in 2013 and are expected to climb to 11 million annually by 2019.

Google announces $279, Chromebook Pixel-inspired HP Chromebook 11 | Ars Technica
The $279 price seems about right, around as much as good smartphone, subsidized. Also, it comes bundle with some good bloat-ware: Finally, the laptop includes a pair of USB 2.0 ports and charging via a tablet- and phone-like micro USB port (which can also output video via the SlimPort standard, much like the recent Nexus devices). The system also comes with 100GB of Google Drive storage for two years, a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music All Access, and 12 free GoGo Inflight Internet sessions. A 4G version will be available, but pricing and availability has not been announced. I wonder if Google is paying them a subsidy.

Laptops of the World
[American education is like everything else in the US: it's a battle between people without money, and the cheap-bastards (here, the taxpayers) who don't want to pay for anything)]: “I’m not a fan of spending $62 million on one school,” Temple’s Ketelhut says. “There’s an equity issue. It’s one thing if it’s a pilot and if it works we’ll do it elsewhere. But is there money to do it elsewhere?” Even Tony Franklin admits that given the budget constraints of inner-city education, “a one-to-one laptop program in every school in the district is not realistic.” [Compare that sentiment to the Norwegian one:]...“There is the general feeling that we just have to do this, that we have to make this technology available to everybody.” [Dueling civilizations in decline!]
