Honestly, I am glad that I found this forum. I really wasn't too sure if it was something that I wanted, but I really like what I've learned here, and so now I'm leaning more toward a "yes".

I really think that they will catch on! I don't need a laptop right now, but if I do, I think this is what I will go for.

Thumbs up I really want one

I read about the Chrome laptop coming out soon and Google may be offering a student option which gets you the laptop plus internet access for $20 a month. That is a price I can afford and it would be perfect for me when I go back to school this fall. I'm looking forward to that option.

I definitely want one, but I agree, I want to wait for the price to go down. I have read somewhere that it would be $350 - that's a little better than $400.

I'd been considering buying a new PC with Win/7, but I might decide to get a Chromebook and use my PC for printing and local storage. It depends on how convenient (and costly) it is to run in the cloud.

I got a Kindle eReader with WiFi only, and found it very annoying to have to find a (free) hotspot. My Chromebook will have 3G for sure.

For me, the Chromebook looks like a better option than an iPad. My main uses will be email, writing (document editing), Facebook, Twitter, surfing for information and reading books. I hope Amazon will soon offer a Kindle reader for the cloud.

If these machines have a USB port, does this mean I can retrieve a document from the cloud and store it on a removable flash drive?
