I want a bigger screen

Is there any news or speculation on when there will be a Chromebook with a bigger screen?

Maybe there's a video-out and you could hook it up to your TV!

The video out shouldn't be suffient for home use if you want a bigger display! as it does have a mini plug on the samsung while the acer has the hdmi output.

Samsung doesn't have the HDMI so it won't be best for your TV since it will require an audio out as well.

From the research I have been doing, you can connect a bigger screen to the chromebook video ports, but it won't extend the displays if thats what you want, instead it will duplicate the display.

Acer ChromeBook has a HDMI port
Samsung ChromeBook has a mini-VGA port

Interesting feedback chrome-guy.... so you won't be able to run dual-monitors??? That sucks!
