    Agreed. Unless the keyboard is detachable, turning it into a tablet.

    My reaction exactly. You gotta really be drinking the Google kool-aid to go for this.

    $1,300 is pretty ridonkulous, maybe it's packing some killer internals that'd make it a decent IDE?? Would only hope for that price...but I wouldn't mind getting one, but oh wait I forgot, Big Red stole my unlimited data, so when I'm not near Wifi, that 1TB of cloud storage could get mighty expensive.

    How did Big Red steal your unlimited data.

    I'm very surprised that isn't standard on every computer.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    Cuz when I upgraded from OG droid to S3 I had to do that tiered data garbage scam that they have going for the past year. Oh u still have yours? Either u still have a 3g device or u paid like $700 for a new one to keep unlimited. No thanks. Old news.

    First look at my signature, second, no I did not pay $700 for my smartphone, I upgraded at subsidized price and kept my unlimited data plan last July, it was the last keep your unlimited data and upgrade at subsidized price on Verizon. By the way, there is no reason to pay full price for any smartphone nowadays, you can go to eBay or swappa and get a fairly new device for half the retail price, unless you need to have that new phone as soon as it hits the street, then you will pay a premium for it, which I do not recommend, the way manufacturers are pumping out new devices every six months it makes no sense to buy a device as soon as it hits the shelves.
    My next smartphone will be bought outright as long as I can keep my unlimited data, but I will never pay $600-$700 for a smartphone.
    By the way Verizon did not steal your unlimited data plan, they gave you a choice, your choice was to get a subsidized phone, and that meant going the new data plan route, no one twisted your arm or forced you to go that route, it was your choice and yours alone.

    Cybertec ur a smart dude. I wasn't planning on upgrading for awhile cuz i wasnt willing to pay that ridiculous price to keep unlimited, so I waited for that unlimited window to close, then wouldnt u know it, 1 week later my work offered to pay for my upgrade. I was like dam it. But hey I'm not gonna argue with anybody about gettin a free S3, so here I am. I'd be lying if I said I'm not jealous of unlimited, especially lte. I could see them not caring anout 3g since that ish is slow as all hell. Its changed my browsing habits slightly, like if there's a long hd YouTube video I'll just send the link to my nexus10 to view later instead of watching over 4g. What really irks me is reading those articles about how its getting cheaper n cheaper for vzw to transmit data but yet the prices keep going up n up. Friggin capitalism I swear, it'll be what's responsible for this country's demise. What a joke. But back to relation to the OP I'd say that there's far fewer people still on unlimited than u think. So for that 1tb of cloud storage it doesn't really matter it could be 1zetabyte, u still have to go thru a scandulous greedy tiered data plan. I'm still interested in what this chromebook pixels specs are. They're holding out hoping some sheep will just jump on it for the nice screen probably. :-)
