Anyone considering a Chromebook?
Has anybody that has a CR-48 considered getting one of the new Chromebooks from Acer or Samsung?
The Samsung is looking really nice...but I'm not sure it's worth actually spending money on right now.Kevin F.I.M.T.K. O'Quinn Esq.

I think the two being offered are only going to appeal to early adopters, just because of the price. If they get dropped into an Acer One body, and sell for 250$, then they will appeal to a much bigger audience.
I'm curious if any businesses or schools will bite on the lease plan Google is offering. That seems like a hell of a deal, and a Chromebook is the ultimate computer to use to protect users from themselvesಠ_ಠ

I dont think its a big enough hardware boost for me too shell out that kind of money when i could get a android tablet for that kinda cash
Short answer: Heck no.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

The only two things that I need a windows machine for are ADB stuff (really Google?) and ZunePass.
Like Jerry said it could be awesome for a certain market, and any company willing to test new technology that's easy to support and quick to roll out to the workforce.Kevin F.I.M.T.K. O'Quinn Esq.

I got one and I must say it's very useful, but I also have a Xoom... It's great it can be laggy at times and Angry Birds isn't really playable in HD. Still, I could imagine how it could be useful to someone on the go, but I have my tablet and phone for that, so maybe if you don't have one of the two it could be very useful.
