Are you looking for a clamshell-style laptop? The world's largest online market, Amazon.com, has a huge selection, with cheap Chromebooks at the top of the list. What does that list say about the three very different ecosystems for this familiar form factor?
According to Amazon, the number one selling laptop isn't a Windows PC or a Mac, it's the Samsung Chromebook, which runs Google's Linux-based Chrome OS.
