Google’s Chrome Notebook: Sooooo not a netbook

I would argue, in fact, that the Notebook is less a notebook or netbook, and more a Mobile Internet Device. Although MIDs, as originally envisioned by Intel, were more tablet-like in nature, the Chrome Notebook is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. Except, perhaps, mobile phones, which are similarly useless without a network connection. (I know, you can be in an utter dead zone and still play Angry Birds, but you know what I mean.) Whether through its Verizon 3G connection or WiFi, the Chrome Notebook is made to be online. There are some offline tools like Diigo’s Read Later Fast, but essentially, you’re either online and working or you’re not. This isn’t a bad thing, but it isn’t how most of us are used to working.
