Add to that the fact that it is secure, fast, cheap ( supposed to be less than 300 dollars),
and should provide a trouble free simple comsumer tool and you have reached awesomeness. Best of all it is not Microsoft or Apple and there for introduces competition into the market place. That is a win for everyone.
BUT LETS NOT TRY TO MAKE IT INTO A WORKSTATION! Yeah!
The thing you described, perfectly describes Netbooks.
That's why googe is targeting Netbooks.
They are not saying use Chrome OS to heavy gaming or controlling NASA, They recommend Chrome OS to netbooks.

Most people who use Netbooks have either 3G or GPRS Internet.
Or atleast use it where they have Internet.
