K1 looks like a big success for Nvidia. Completely the opposite compared to old ones. And we are still talking about the 32bit chip.
If the 64bit Denver version that is expected(?) to be revealed in detail(?) in Hot Chips today is as good as many expect, well even more champagnes will open in Nvidia HQs.

Putting the k1 into a chromebook was a smart play. I read the 1366x768p thirteen inch base model is going to be around $280. The full 1080p version will be $300 and there will be bigger package options with more ram for slightly higher. The $300 dollar one seems right at my limit on the price tag of a chromebook though. I hope the price tags do not keep climbing because the big sale point to me is price. The performance aspect is just an added bonus with the light os. I do understand the slight price jump from running the latest and greatest from nvidia. Go chromebook NATION! :p
