      I really wonder why a netbook that is connected to the cloud needs to have a 64gb drive…

      this can’t be true. google engineers said current netbooks were too small to be comfortable. specifically what I understood is that a 100% key-size keyboard does not fit on 10 inches. moreover the 64GB thing. this is bullshit.

      64gb is prob needed for all the system backups that chromeos uses.
