New devices based on the new Intel Haswell architecture have been unveiled, from Acer, HP, Asus and Toshiba.

Some of these notebooks will cost as low as $199, and NPD recently reported that Chromebooks currently account for 25% of the $300-and-under computer segment.

Additionally, 20 percent of school districts, and 5000 schools, have deployed the notebooks to their students.
