But, most of the time the joy out ways the cost.

The only reason I got my Chromebook when I did was because I cancelled my original order (Titan Silver Wi-Fi only Series 5) and forked over the extra $70 for the upgrade. I was also eligible for Amazon's Prime Membership trial, so I signed up and payed another $3 for next day shipping and cancelled the trial as soon as my Chromebook got here.

Last night--late I got an email from Amazon saying that the Samsung Titan Silver 3g would arrive on Monday the 27th. Contrary to the last advice from customer support stating that it would at least be 2-3 weeks. Well, trouble is that I will be in FL for the next two weeks. I tried to change the delivery address and the delivery date jumped to the 18th. Next I change the shipping from 2-day Prime to 1-day and the delivery date changed to the 19th. Went back to original 2-day and it jumped to the 20th. None of this would work for me as I assume it would require a signature. Called customer service and they said this was normal; doesn't make sense to me. Ended up cancelling the order. It just seems that something has been working against me getting this thing from the get go. Maybe I'll just wait to the hopeful second gen or until the price drops a little. Headed to Bestbuy to purchase the new Samsung 10.1 tablet. Didn't really want one but need a geek fix for vacation. Or, maybe I'll just take a breather...

Try to get the Transformer if you are getting a Android Tablet... Then you can get the keyboard dock is AWESOME!

Probably early this month, whenever Gilt was doing their pre-sale.

Change my mind. I'm still not ready for a tablet. Not a big Mac fan. Android tablets seem "half-baked" and not enough quality tablet apps. Google has never steered me wrong. Made some good $ on their "IPO" and loved the way they did it on their on... I have a kindle. Love it. Just re-ordered the Samsung 3g titan silver from Amazon. States that it will reach me in FL on the 28th? Carrying my already in hand Rickshaw case. Call me crazy, but I was the same way over thee HTC Droid Incredible and haven't regretted it not once. If nothing else it will be great for my wife to check email, Facebook, etc. And, I believe that all the guys at the fire hall will buy eventually. Because all they do is check email and web browse and it will cut down on my tech support. I'm constantly tweaking or reformatting someone's computer.

Since I haven't tried out the Chromebook yet I'm still trying to figure out the differences between using the Chromebook and using the Chrome web browser. I know you can use a lot of the web apps from the Chrome Web Store in the browser and the Chrombook, but is there really any differences such as exclusives?
