Good to see Dell branching out more, only a few years ago they were strictly pro-intel and pro-microsoft. Now they offer expanded solutions and include Linux in their offerings. Chrome OS may have a solid market in low-end / mini-pc solutions and netbooks for sure, catering the a similar market that Apple is trying to reach with the less tech savvy home consumer market or those who want as few frills as they can to just have the core features they use.

In regard to MS stepping up their game, the company has so many OS projects running around that it would be silly to think they're not already trying to cater to something for the masses. They've been expanding WinMo7 support beyond just the smartphone and they're aware of the adoption rates of the iPad and iPhone / iPod Touch with the general consumer market. Companies are often working on these projects for years before a public release is distributed about them. :/

I head chrome is quite a resource hog compared to WinMo7 or any netbook OS too. Fair enough though that it's still being worked on a good bit.
I can eventually see google monopolizing the hell out of just about everything... seriously.

As a quick question, has Dell's quality improved?
I know a few years ago the build quality was quite poor e.g. keys falling off, parts not working after a while. This still the case?

Lol, casually added that part about taking over the world.

Pretty cool.

"Dell is the world’s third largest manufacturer of pre-built computers."

Dell is only the 3rd largest? What are the first and second? I always assumed Dell was the largest with HP close behind them and IMB thrown around in there somewhere. I cant even think of any other manufactures other than gateway and Asus but they cant be bigger than Dell...

IBM is not there at all. I'm pretty sure it's Acer and HP. Apple might of gotten up there lately, but I think they're fifth, behind Lenovo, IIRC.
