The Chromebook has been discussed quite a bit lately. With leaked videos, Android mentioned in the code, and a website domain reserved it looks like we’ll see something amazing at Google I/O this Spring.

All this fun talk lately about the Chromebook Pixel seems to lead to more questions than it answers. Is it real? When will we get it? will it run Android apps? The last one seems to interest us the most. If we could run Android on a Chromebook, would we want to? Is that smart for Google?
Google is making a push to be the enterprise solution of choice for business. Is it any good? It is, and your cmpany could save boatloads by switching.
