Chromebook HD size relevant?

A Best Buy sales guy told a friend of mine to get the $200 chromebook and not the $250 samsung chromebook because the $200 one had a bigger hard drive.  

I didn't think the "C:" was relevant because chrombooks can't store documents on the hard drive.

However, as I type that, there must be a way to "browse" local storage to upload pictures to picasa, etc.


What's the deal?

BTW, the $250 samsung's battery life is twice that of the $200 chromebook  which seems much more important.

Thanks,
Mike

So, let me clarify: the local storage is for the purpose of syncing the cloud content when offline, right?

But unlike a windows pc, you can't plug in a usb camera and drag 200 gigs of photos to the "C:", right?

Wow!  Thanks Terencino!

I thought the local storage was basically for the OS and for cached stuff from the online app.

Nonetheless, I'm not moved by the bigger drive size because it seems unwise to move lots of data to the local storage and not have it in the google cloud where it is backed up.

Thanks,
Mike
