If it is only going to be to use for the internet, why would I want another laptop, when I could just have a smaller, more compact i-Pad instead?

Web browser is not updated often (Chrome is updated each 6 weeks.)
No choice in hardware (only what Jobs thinks it's best for you.)
Real keyboard.
Cheaper potiental hardware.
No horrible iTunes software (your chromebook won't need another PC to function properly.)

Well because i am an iPad user, if i had the money i would buy a Chromebook. iPad and Chromebooks are not the same. Well almost.

If all you ever did was look at or read websites then maybe an iPad would suit. I think most people actually want to write things on forums like this, or send emails etc. I could never be happy without a proper keyboard.

The iPad 2 is a little better than its predecessor. Seriously though, people who have them miss having a keyboard. Everyone I know with an iPad also has a PC because of that. Most of them need to type for work or school. So, yeah that is why you should get a Google Chromebook instead or in conjunction with and iPad.

Like others have said, I would rather have a Chromebook for the keyboard because I am always wanting to type. If I only browsed the web an iPad would be great but because I communicate a lot online I like a full keyboard.

This is going to be debated more and more.
Boot up speed, cloud based, zero maintenance and versatile enough for the office or play--Chromebook is the winner.

Versatility is another factor. Chromebook seems much more versatile than the iPad. I can see myself using it at work, in school, at home, and even when I'm in the car.

I have been trying to decide which to buy an ipad or a notebook. After reading this thread I have made up my mine....the chromebook is for me. Thanks for the information.:)

Aside from the lower price, better computing power, built-in keyboard, etc., whenever i hold an iPad, I'm super careful with it and I'm almost afraid to actually use it in case it slips out of my hands and breaks. I just don't feel that way with actual notebooks though :)

One reason for me...I attest that the CR-48 plays FLASH video. My girlfriend has an iPad and gets very jealous when we sit in bed and I can play the movies posted on Facebook and she can't :)

I think let us just accept change; the chromebook combines what you would use an Ipad for besides giving you the comfort of using a keyboard for your typing work.
