How long until we see a Dell or HP Chromebook?
I'm really curious to see how long it takes before we see a Dell or HP Chromebook.

This would be a huge win for Google.... but I'm sure Dell and HP have a lot of agreements with Microsoft not to do this sort of thing. It would have a big effect on Windows-platform if these things started selling big quantities.

Recently Dell has shown some independence from Microsoft when it comes to non-desktop or laptop computers. for example they offered Linux build options for its netbook line and use Android in the 5'- and 7" Streak tablet line. So its not too far fetched a concept for Dell to do a Chromebook as well sometime in the (indefinite) future.

I am not a huge fan from dell or HP and i don't think these companies will release chromebooks.

Dell will probably make short work of it, before years end. HP likely won't adopt and instead will try to push a webOS version of it, though I don't know the main differneces between the two.

I own a Dell and perhaps that says how much I value this model. With Google rolling out the first ever chromebooks, I think there is a lot we are likely to see...with time Microsoft might have to go back to the drawing board.

The HP edition would be very interesting. Now, an all in one desktop running native chrome OS... okay, I could just dual boot it... but still...

I do not really care either way about HP, but I love Dell. Every Dell I have ever owned was great, lasted a long time, and was very cheap to maintain. If Dell makes a Google Chrome Book then I want one of those.

I hope to see both, more hardware manufacturers should mean a better variety of hardware solutions for the ChromeOS to live on.

I love HP, but I absolutely hate Dell! I hope they don't get in on any of the action. I've never had any luck with any of their equipment - computers or printers.
