    Does anyone outside of some schools buy chromebooks?

      Yes :( Unfortunately Chromebooks are really cheap here, and countless people are hooked already to Google products because of their Android phones already, so the choice is easy for them I figure.

        That’s crazy, I’ve never seen anyone use them here in Australia.

        I think because every business has its own little proprietary windows app they need to use for this or that.

          Good for you. Recently I visited a family I’m friendly with, and noticed that the parents and the two young kids exclusively use a few Chromebooks. I think this boils down to do with the popularity of web based email (Google) and other services. And banks are pushing for customers to use phone apps.
