A "free" computer online is a great idea, yet it begs the question of access. 
I wonder if Xcerion has considered a co-branding deal with someone like Asus or Acer to produce a netbook tailored to access iCloud. NOT locked down, but with added functionality oriented toward iCloud use. 
Add tablet functionality with a non-electronic stylus (or a fingernail) would truly make it a killer product. 
An ultra low cost netbook able to access iCloud without the User having to separately purchase access / connectivity would fill the gap, imho. 
Just a thought...
