I personally don't think it's there yet. Probably the closest is the
ARM Chromebook but the desktop experience isn't great due to the lack
of half decent publicly available (open source or otherwise) graphics
I actually used the Chromebook for a couple of weeks while travelling
to do some development work. Graphics are a bit slow and mouse is
horrible, but over all it wasn't too bad. The thing is super-light,
has excellent battery life, and reasonably fast.
