I am also a huge fan of Acer and personally I have no room to judge them for being late. First of all, I myself am late for anything and everything!!! As hard as I try, darn it, I just can't seem to be on time (I think it is an inherited trait:-) All of the above just confirms to me that indeed Acer and I are a good match. Second of all, if their delay is indeed a result of the pending lawsuit then who can them blame??? And who knows, maybe the delay is not even in Acer's hands but rather the Court's hands. According to the "Official Release" link posted by Driod it looks as though ISYS Technologies is trying to get a "Restraining Order Sought to Stop Launch of Chromebook and Chromebox".
By the way....Thanks Driod for the for link!!! I'm going to check it out right now.
