So given these directly compete with chromebooks with android support, where’s the value proposition? I guess in pricing?

Have you looked at the top picture? Not even clicking on the video is necessary to get that the display is utter crap. Glossy as hell and advertised as ‘14.0″ TN LCD HD Display’ without mentioning any resolution so most probably 1366×768 pixels but maybe even less. Display density and quality from 15 years ago…

Actually I did notice the display specs, ergo my guess ; )
