That's like saying "I'd buy a Toyota if they'd turn it into a Lexus". Chromebooks aren't intended to compete with Macbooks or Ultrabooks.

I develop/Ace-based development IDE+ Firebug/Chrome Dev tools everyday for Ruby/Python/JS development. And for online web developer, who target web development, Chromebooks have the potential to become a web development machine too.

The Toyota/Lexus metaphor is totally pointless. As a developer and proponent of web based IDEs, I believe that a platform needs its developers on itself in the longterm, not on some other platforms.
