    Would I be able to plug a USB mini HD into the Chromebook and then copy photos and videos from sdhc cards from my cams onto the HD? That's mainly what I use my current netbook for when I'm on trips... to backup your stuff.

    I'm buying one, if they will ever ship it. I think they were taken off guard by how many people ordered these.

    I bought one of these and it arrived today. So far I mostly love it, but I'm a bit annoyed that the SDCard isn't fully recessed. If you put an SDCard in it, it hangs halfway out. I had high hopes of just sticking a 32GB SDcard in there and having a lot of local storage but I'm not that fond of having the card sticking out the side 100% of the time.

    Other than that somewhat minor annoyance the device is pretty great for what it is.

    I'd love one, but sadly...
    Being in Australia I can't buy one through "official" channels for some time yet!

    I'm still waiting on mine. Amazon hasn't shipped, can't give an ETA.

    Gonna be hard to not cancel my pre-order soon with all those other temptations being announced lately.

    Same here. Not a peep from amazon on an estimated ship date. Kind of kills the point of a "pre order". If something really good gets announced Monday I may just cancel.

    Still love your Chromebook? Would you say it's better than a Samsung galaxy tab 2 or asus tf300?
