Chromebooks just don't get the hardware they deserve

ASUS C300 Chromebook

The economics may not work out in a way that we'll get great high-end Chromebooks

As I've spent an increasing amount of time using Chromebooks over the course of the last year, reviewing several personally, I'm starting to get worried about the state of the Chromebook market.

The "Chromebooks are just the new netbooks" argument has been thrown around quite liberally in the past two years, but I've always been optimistic that we would eventually see a range of Chromebooks that aren't just cheap machines meant to undercut the competition. But as we enter a new generation of Chromebooks hitting the market with low-cost and low-power Intel and ARM processors, the cheapest possible display components, limited memory and uninspired designs, I'm losing some of my confidence.
