Chromebooks fail to ignite

Nothing in the PC makers’ box of tricks works at the moment. Laptops and desktops are losing ground to tablets and smartphones on every front.

Chromebooks – Google’s cloud-oriented, always connected alternative to Windows or Macintosh laptops – have such a tiny share of global web traffic it doesn’t even make it on the reports. According to Ed Bott at ZDNet, it accounts for roughly 2/100 of one percent of web traffic. That’s after two years on the market.

Some of the best-known brands make Chromebooks. HP, Lenovo, Samsung and Acer have all got their feet wet in this market.

This puts recent stories about Windows 8’s poor start in perspective.
