The $299 ASUS EeeBook E403SA runs Windows 10, is designed to take on Chromebooks
Set to retail later this year for $299, the EeeBook E403SA is designed to go head to head with similarly-priced Chromebooks.
Although targeted at the entry-level segment, the EeeBook E403SA shares design commonalities with the manufacturer's more premium offerings. When it comes to the hardware, the notebook sports a 14-inch display, an Intel Pentium processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB SSD along with a 13-hour battery life, with the specs matching those on offer with several Chromebooks. What sets the EeeBook E403SA spart is that it runs Windows 10 out of the box, allowing users access to a wider range of content.
The EeeBook E403SA will be hitting store shelves sometime in Q3 2015. With Lenovo also announcing the entry-level Ideapad 100 last week, it is clear that Windows OEMs are looking to sieze a chunk of the market share away from Chromebooks this year.

I'm just one of those guys who doesn't defend either, just being objective about it instead of subjective. In the start I was like "Why the @@@@ would I use a Chrome?", but today they are aiming higher. Although I'm keeping my hands on Windows.
They just have access to the Chrome web store -- which is available to Windows users in its entirety via their web browser :)
(Just why anyone would use Chrome these days is beyond me though. You're plugging yourself into the Google machine, whilst also getting battery life drain & v.v.poor high def video playback. A 720p video in Chrome stutters for me where it plays fluidly at 1080p in IE!)
I don't know the market share of OSX, but I know is way more less than Windows, so, the only reason that people knows Chrome is because of Windows.
Google needs windows, the other way around is about to end.
