Shocked!!! Why would anyone buy a chromebook when you can get one of these?

So I was poking around the Microsoft Store online and came across these....

It's been a while since I needed to buy a laptop so this blew me away. Full-blown x86 Windows laptops with touchscreens selling for 250-300? I'm sure the processor is really weak but still, it's a full blown windows laptop and has touch.

Not sure when this started but I think its awesome! Why would anyone buy a chromebook when you can just get one of these?

Plus it looks like they all come with Office. How is MS making any money off these?
