8B for a tablet in the first place is stupid back a year ago.  I have 8G on my iPhone, which i purposely don't run as many apps and that's barely enough for a basic use smartphone.

 

 

The only sales figures they have for the 2012 model was 7 Million units sold up until July 2013.  I don't know how many more they sold until the 2013 model was released.

 

The 2013 model, there aren't any official sales figures listed that I can see, but they stopped selling the 8GB model, they only sell 16GB and 32GB models.

I was going off  oflocal shops here, the 8GB wasn't even offered. You had to special order it from Google.

What's funny is the price of the 8GB model was what the media was pushing, even though it wasn't the better selling product.   Freaking media.  I think the media, for the most part, is a bunch of idiots. Most of them are stupid, I'm wondering how 90% of the articles even make it to print these days.  What's worse is when you have journalists with little or no background in IT writing articles on IT companies and how they twist reality and that people buy into what they say because it's in print.

Those who do go the Android route, the Nexus series of products is really your only trued choice, the rest is just a wast of time. with all of their silly slow skins.

 

I totally agree, It took me spending lots of money on crappy devices to realise this.

Alright zozman my mistake it takes 32 seconds but no lag and it responds instantly everytime looks like others agree with me.I'd prove it if I could I created this account just to post my 32 sec boot time and flash speed.not one pair of devices are completely the same there will be some variance whether its a tone of color or read and write speed.I don't own a 2013 due to major graphic loss on such games like real racing 3 and nova 3 although color is better but I saw a major downgrade when playing it at my friends house its a give n take of features I'd rather stick to nvidea there play supported

People get so excited about cheap crap in general, who in their right mind would buy a 8GB tablet of any make or model is beyond me. These journalists should really be ashamed of themselves for pushing these products upon people. The thing is though these company's pay for advertising on their tech blogs. Like I don't think Engadget or Gizmodo is always unbiased when writing about certain products.

Most of these journalists are just trying to create excitement because they don't know what else to write about.


I think Google/Android products, in general, have been overhyped almost like Facebook's IPO.  

 

All of the journalists are biased, it's almost impossible to write about computer technology and be unbiased.   If these journalists wrote articles that were unbiased, their articles would be boring.   

 

But overhyping a cheap product isn't right.  But I wonder how many of those journalists got a free Nexus 7 with 8GB of RAM?  I know Apple doesn't hand them out, they loan their products.  But Google seems to have expensive giveaways like the Chromebook.   Are they still pushing that POS?  I don't hear much about Chromebooks anymore, did Google finally put a nail to the Chromebook?

No the Chromebooks are defiantly still around and are actually gaining in sales, they are the new Netbooks apparently. Sony and Toshiba will join in all the fun and will start producing them as well by the end of this year early next along side already Chromebook manufactures Samsung, Acer and HP. The Chromebooks occupy(this link is old, the Samsung Chromebook now holds the number one spot) 3 out of the top 5 notebooks sold on Amazon, The new HP Chrome 11, Samsung's Arm 11.6 and the Acer C720. So yes, not only is Google pushing these POS but people are buying them in droves and are one of the only platforms that is increasing in marketshare, very quickly if I might add. I guess people don't mind using a OS that is just a browser.

Gaining sales?  Well, when you have no sales, selling one unit is gaining sales, but Chromebooks are just for basic, basic needs and that's about all you can do with them.  They are actually just the latest GOOGLE con job to get people to use their services so they can maybe earn some money and keep them using Google Search for ad clicks/ad revenues.  They are certainly not pushing the limit and technology on any level and they are kind of a waste of money that will most likely end up not being used and disappointing the user.

 

What market share do they occupy? The computers in the $100 to $300 range.  Whoopty Doo.  There's no money in that market and ya wonder why HP is selling lots of product but not making any money.  HP should become a non-profit organization along with all of the other PC mfg.    Who cares what sells through Amazon.  Not all products are bought through Amazon.  I didn't buy my iMac through Amazon, I bought it directly from Apple as a custom config.

 

Oh, I just cruised Amazon's best selling laptops list and did a little more digging, some of these so-called top sellers list the Chromebooks as use and refurbished.  Maybe people are buying them, returning them, and then trying to resell them again.  Amazon is more for where used products are sold, unless it's Kindle.   I don't think HP and Apple, etc. sell most of their products through Amazon.

 

 

Here's a RECENT article explaining how well your beloved Chromebooks are selling, or how I should say AREN'T selling.

 

http://www.zdnet.com/latest-idc-figures-show-chromebooks-continue-to-struggle-7000023000/

 

 

Oh, I forgot to add.  Relic has a friend that works for Google and Relic got a FREE Chromebook from her friend that they give away to people.  So, Relic, you sound just like these crooked journalists that hype something because they got free product from the mfg they are hyping.  Shame, shame, shame on you.

Actually three friends but I really do like ChromeOS. I have a Chromebook, yes and I bought a ChromeBox for my bedrooms TV. They make perfect dumb terminals and media players and of course not to mention surfing machines. Since you have never used one it's very unfair that you've called foul on me. Shame on me, no sir shame on you for commenting on me using a product that you know absolutely nothing about. Reading reviews vs. actually using a device is a very big difference. Actually what do you know about half of the products that you complain about and it's a lot by the way. Your assuming way to much but actually know nothing about the products you shun, curiously have you owned any of the products that you complain about on this board, I doubt it I know you had a Android phone but it was such a low end model that I fully understand why you hate Android, a high end Android model, no, I don't think you used one. So why do you complain so much, really I would like to know. These are just gadgets, mean nothing to you, why the emotional feelings. Don't worry though in a months time you will never have to hear from me again.

The thing about Chromebooks is they cut costs to the bone to get to the cheap price point hence a recall of overheating chargers on some current models.
Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

Interesting, thanks for the heads up. Haven't seen any problems with them yet but I'll be sure to tell my kids to unplug them at night. Would you happen to know the make of the machines that have this problem. I own a Samsung ChromeBook ARM and Samsung, i5, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD ChromeBox. Both of witch seem to be fine but I still don't want to take any chances.

Faulty charger yes but due to Chromebooks being cheap? I think I recall Apple had it's own issue with overheating charging cables not that long ago and Apple wouldn't typically be tagged with cheap.

As if Apple doesn't have the same problem with iPhones?! My 3G was such an awful experience, I would never own another iDevice again. I haven't heard so much about issues on iPads, but its pretty easy to find a lot of evidence of people complaining about it on iPhone (If you google "iPhone slows down" the second choice "iPhone slows down over time". There's also plenty of anecdotal evidence. Even if this happens with my Nexus 7, I can upgrade it more frequently due to its much lower cost. Sure it has some problems, but apple has hardly been a leader in the smaller tablet space.

Nope.

Great, thanks for stopping by, pick up a complimentary peppermint candy on the way out (Take only one), and never come back.

And somehow a google search is proof of something, huh.

Really? That’s funny. Nexus 5 is as or more expensive than the iPhone.

Shut up and go away. If you’re going to troll, don’t, but at least don’t insult our intelligences with this tripe.

Proof that iPads suffer the same problems with iPhones and getting slow over time, it seems to be more a problem with upgrades to software (that don't appear to be sufficiently tested for anything but the latest hardware).

This thread has has 288 THOUSAND vies and over 400 replies, if thats not indicative of a real problem, I'm not sure what is. Look, its facts!

Oh, look, a “discussions.apple.com” link. That’s certainly proof of anything¡

 
….it seems to be more a problem with upgrades to software…

 

NO REALLY. JUST LIKE EVERY PIECE OF SOFTWARE EVER WRITTEN. If you think a 15 year old computer is going to run modern software as fast as it ran its original software, you’ve a serious misconception about how technology works.

 
…sufficiently tested…

 

Now THERE you go. THAT’S how you troll. It has to be subtle.

 
…if thats not indicative of a real problem, I’m not sure what is.

 

Well, facts would be. Any sort of meaningful evidence beyond “views”, I’d think. This, however, isn’t.

 
Look, its facts!

 

Where?! WHERE?! I want his autograph! I’m a huge fan.

This is an Apple oriented website, so you are likely to get iPad Air or iPad Mini as an answer. With only one post and your signature points to a website advertising a book, I do not suppose this is a form of spam is it?
