Is there a chromebook/(laptop shipping with CB) with a backlit keyboard, 
a decent size screen, and sturdy aluminium case? I see chromebooks 
targeting either the cheapo market, or the fancy gadget market, but not 
the mainstream or rugged markets. Is this because of a lack in demand, 
or a lack in supply? I am among those that can reconcile with a higher 
cost, but not a lower performance, and I am looking for a new laptop, BTW.
