Truth be told, I love my Netflix subscription. I can get the movies I'm interested in without going to a store at a minimal cost. However, Mashable revealed that Google may be offering their new Chrome Netbooks for rent. (Read more here.)
This begs the question: Would you rent a laptop? A piece of hardware? I use my personal laptop and it is customized with all the applications and products that help me learn and share. Can I get this from a netbook that is essentially a "suped up" web browser? Maybe.
Maybe I'll love rented laptops as much as I love my Netflix subscription. We'll see.
For now, I'm viewing these Chrome netbooks as a possible solution to the CFF replacement cycle. 10 dollars a month with full replacement seems really reasonable... THOUGHTS?
