    They are fine for what the OP wants. And much cheaper.

    Since the topic was started I noticed there is a third-party extension to make the Google Docs look more like the MS Office programs. I cannot find it right now.

    If you like Apple laptops, then you may want to consider a refurbished one. They work well for anything you need, and don't have to shell out the cash for something new. My only problem with refurbished is the battery doesn't last as long. But if you're working at an event, you can just plug it in.

    Also, there are sites like this that often have fantastic flash sales.

    That's another thing about Chromebook. The battery life is great.

    Meh, once you get into the $300-$400 range, you start to run into mainstream 11.6" laptops with convertible form factors that don't lock you into using ChromeOS.
