    Google Chromebooks Aren't Completely Dead: 20 Percent Of IT Professionals Want Them, Analyst Says

    Google's Chromebook laptop is about two years old now and it seems as if the idea has been all but killed by tablets like the iPad.

    However, there's still a sliver of hope that the Chromebook could capture some of the enterprise market, according to a new research report by market research firm Forrester.

    That's because a surprising number of IT pros that work for enterprises are thinking about them.

    In a recent survey of 1,282 global enterprise IT professionals, about one-quarter said that they were interested in buying Chromebook for their companies.

    Unfortunately, this interest isn't turning into actual sales yet.

    From my point of view, I prefer a device that you can boot to an alternate OS.

    I doubt that my Acer Chromebook can initialize with a flavor of Unix other than Chrome.

    I wonder if this affects sales to this niche market. That is: "IT pros that work for enterprises."
