in years to come chromebooks will cannibalise a lot of windows market share.
Chromebooks is not a business.
A business - as Steve Balmer very aptly put it - a business makes money.
Chromebooks don't make money. For nobody. They're loss-leaders at best.

Cheap products attract cheap customers, who usually want everything for free.
Who is going to pay for advertising space on these products if the target audience doesn't have money?
Already, GOOGs traffic acquisition costs are increasing every quarter. It's harder and harder to get people pay for ads and get other people to click on those ads.
