Fortune Magazine Names the New Samsung Chromebook Best Device of 2012

The new Samsung Chromebook has been chosen as the “Best Device of 2012 by Fortune Magazine. Awesome news to start the day with! Here is comment from Fortune’s Miguel Helft:

Best device of 2012: The new Samsung Chromebook. I know, there are gobs of new tablets and phones, and they’re all faster, thinner, lighter and sharper than last year’s models. Many are great. But I’m going to go with the new Samsung Chromebook. The limitations are obvious. This is not a full-fledged computer, just a window onto the Web. For $250, however, it’s a very nice window indeed. It has the look and feel of an ultrabook. It starts up fast and never needs upgrades. And it’s inexpensive enough that you could have two or three lying around the house.

Not everyone is happy, if you read the comments for that article. “A dedicated web browser is the best tech gadget of the year??? Pretty sad if you ask me.” someone says. But I am sure most of you here will agree that the ARM Chromebook deserved this. I have read many reviews on leading gadget blogs, calling the Chromebook a game changer.

    I just got my samsung chromebook yesterday as an early present to myself. I am loving this thing. I too think its a game changer, not because of the specs of it, but what I can do with the thing. I am a software developer by trade and I spent a while doing some research on this thing and I wondered if I could do most of my work on this thing and I absolutely can, that is a big win for me. The world is changing, the day of installed apps is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
