Why is the kensington lock port even mentioned as a feature, a very very VERY small % of people use the kensington lock and those that do are probably trying to protect hardware that costs a lot more than $250. Besides I never understood this feature it is a simple oval hole definitely not some super secure lock feature and there are many videos online on how to easily circumvent this security feature.
Same with the warranty, would someone actually want to pay extra (clearly shoppers are trying to save money with this device not spend more) for 2 years of extra warranty on such a cheap low end device.
Anyway, I am not an Acer fan but I am glad their chromebooks are doing well for them. I still haven't seen anyone using chromebooks in the wild, wonder what they are being used for exactly that the alternatives aren't doing.
sevags, those features you mentioned aren't very interesting for most of us (myself included), but a lot of schools and some businesses will deploy fleets of these things. Thus, the ability to lock them up to a cart or what have you, and also the option for extended warranties, is a big deal for some of the prime consumers of these things.
