Aside from the poor resolution I also don't understand the price. I purchased a gaming laptop (ASUS G75VW) w/ 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, 750GB HDD, GTX 660m & 3610QM, which runs 1920x1080 for under $1400. This dell laptop has the specifications of my $400 Chromebook. It seems like it has been massively overpriced because it's one of the few machines that runs linux out of the box.

Tell me more about this $400 Chromebook with a 3GHz i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD.

If you only look at screen resolution, then his argument held (some) water.

I've got to admit, 768 vertical is a bit poor for developing.
