    I really want one of those laptops. If they decide to sell them, I think I'll get one if I don't get a free one.

    I almost bid on one last night on ebay... but I didn't pull the trigger. I think I might just buy a low end netbook and load the OS on it.

    as far as I can tell, nothing.

    You get a link under the apps section on a new tab, which brings you here.

    It's not really a web app, more of a bookmark with a custom icon that you can only get to with a few more button clicks as opposed to having it on your bookmarks toolbar......

    that is all an app is from the chrome web store its a bookmark with a big icon.. the extensions are more of an app then the apps are, all of the apps from the chrome web store are just links to sites
