Haha, Pete! Funny, and also pretty true. It's nice to be able to do stuff offline, but every time the internet cuts out around here I get off the laptop and wait for it to come back anyway, so I don't get much done offline. Anyway-- glad to hear the Chromebook is (basically) doing well despite the problems with the launch.I don't get the "if the internet's not connected, you're computer is a brick if it's not connected to the internet. If I don't have the internet with my laptop, There's not much I'm going to do with it. What am I going to do offline? Create a spreadsheet in the woods?
