HP Chromebook 11 review: is this $279 Chrome OS laptop really for everyone?

We've seen Chromebook prices get cheaper and cheaper, but the majority opinion appears to remain the same: they're nice laptops in theory, but they don't cut it in the real world. Interesting, then, that Google's marketing the new HP Chromebook 11 as the laptop "for everyone." One thing that we think almost everyone can agree on: $279 for a well-designed, 11.6-inch notebook with a bright IPS display is a none-too-shabby deal. But, given the limitations of Chrome OS, is this actually a worthwhile purchase?

HP's smartwatch has Swarovski crystals and a see-through screen

Because Swarovski crystals are a girl's (cheaper) best friend, am I right?
