Acer versus Samsung?

I read somewhere that users who wanted to purchase the Acer Chromebook would have to wait past the June 25th date.

What necessitated this?

There has been a lot of speculation. However, in the end it seems that the problem is not with Google, but with Acer. They are having issues that might be leftover from the earthquake or something.

I think they have shortages on some of the parts. I know Acer is very invested in getting their Google Chromebooks out, so with patience things should be alright.

In some sense, doesn't that place the Samsung model at some sort of vantage position or can we assume that Acer lovers would be patient enough for things to get sorted?

Really??? I had not heard this! That definitely makes a lot of sense and would explain a lot of things. Do you have any sort of reference I could maybe look up on the matter? And.............

@ Pelloski...........There is no doubt this could give Samsung an advantage especially in that Samsung has already made their product available to the public and are the first to do so. I believe that we are an impatient world who wants what we want, when we want it, and we want it now!!! So in light of "wanting" a Chromebook....well that truly is too bad for Acer However, as an "Acer lover", I can attest to the fact that I will be patient enough to wait for Acer to get their problems (whatever that may be) sorted out......if indeed they are able.

It is so hard to tell. Acer is not making it very clear. One week they are saying it is due to a shortage, then we here they are having problems with Microsoft and other companies. My question is has Acer said anything on the books that isn't so vague it is left up to speculation?
