Oh, someone said that would make this well over $500. Would a jump in speed like that really end up raising the price of the Google Chromebook that much?

It is hard to say, if things go well with the first gen Google Chromebooks you can expect USB 3.0, 4G and some other things too. All in all it will make the 2nd generations a little more expensive.

Samsung and Acer will offer both WiFi and 3G models, right? So, since Sprint and Verizon and AT&T are all rushing to upgrade their networks to 4G, why did they not foresee the need to build a model (for a few bucks more) that's 4G-capable and unveil it with the other 2 models? Seems to me like a great way to stay ahead of the competition.

Interesting comparison: browser speed testing of the Chrome browser on straight Chrome O/S, Mac O/S, Linux O/S & Windows O/S. Does anyone agree?

Also should compare capabilities.

Sounds good to me. I would prefer a chromebook with a slightly larger screen.

I would think a 4G version will become available quickly, after all the entire product is based on connectivity to the Internet.

Wi-Fi isn't a data connection in itself, but a means of connecting to one via wireless technology. The speed of your Wi-Fi connection is entirely dependent on the local network it is connected to, so speeds could range anywhere from 2 Mbps - 150 Mbps.
