The bottom line is Windows 8 PC and laptop sales have been slow. So, what, according to Amazon, in this winter of Windows 8 discontent has been the best selling laptop? It’s Samsung’s ARM-powered, Linux-based Chromebook.

Now, I don’t have a Chromebook, so I can’t give you a review, but of the 660 reviews on Amazon over 375 are 5 stars!

I know a lot of libraries loan out laptops, maybe if your library couldn’t afford to do so before, you might want to give the Chromebook a look.

    California libraries have been circulating Chromebooks for the past year thanks to a State Library grant. Palo Alto pioneered this, working with Google. The Chromebooks work really well in libraries – we’ve had great success with the devices!

    That is awesome!! Thanks for sharing!

    Actually, we’ve been circulating them since October, so it hasn’t been quite a year here. Palo Alto has been circulating them for about a year though.
