Just tried checking Amazon.com to see if you can pre-order it but so far can't find a link..... Looks like I'm going to have to wait a bit before I can put money down on this badboy.

Im loving the Spec of this puppy, but im not diggin the CPU, i never was a huge fan of the Intel Atom CPU's. Did the clock the speed on how fast the CPU is? or which Atom it is?

As for the VGA support good move , good move on that one portable laptops with an easy access VGA port is a must! now if only they used a DVI port for better quality...

Here are some more specs:

The Series 5 actually runs components that echo today’s netbooks: It has a 1.66GHz dual-core Intel Atom N570 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 16GB mSATA SSD (used for caching data locally).

All ports along the sides are tucked away beneath covers, except for a lone USB 2.0 port at the far right rear of the laptop. You get an SDHC card slot at front, another USB 2.0 port beneath a cover at the left, a video-out port, and a full-size SIM card slot (on the 3G-capable white and titanium models). The 3.5mm headphone jack doubles as a microphone input as well; and the Chromebook has a 1-megapixel Webcam for video chat.

Price looks good to me, outside of no HDMI the Samsung looks to be my preferred Chromebook.
