I am leaning towards Amazon, just because I tend to shop with them more than best buy. At the same time the wait and shipping time will affect my decision on where I purchase my Chromebook.

They have prototypes of cars that fly. The only problem is that there would be a heck of a time enforcing traffic laws with flying cars. I love how quickly technology is growing. I can't wait to see...

Soon to Purchase!

In two weeks I get a check, and some of that money is set aside for my Chromebook. I am very excited about this! Should I order from Best Buy or Amazon? Do they still have long waits?

No one knows for sure what held Acer up on releasing the Chromebook. They were pretty tight lipped about it. This ISYS lawsuit was huge in the news and now I can't find any info on it. I have been...

If they change the processor then will that change the name of the Chromebook? Like once they use Intel will the Chromebooks with the intel chips be the next gen?

I wonder how long it will take before computers switch over fully to USB 3. Chromebooks are still 2 and so are a lot of other computers on the market.

I don't remember MIDs. I guess I was out of the loop on that one. Wouldn't tablets be kind of like a MID? Wouldn't a Pocket Chromebook be a small tablet?

C.os, I have never done anything like that. Where do you get your supplies and what tools do you need to do the job? I am thinking I would make a navy blue one so it would match the decor.

How fast is Acer Chromebook shipping?

Is it too soon to start asking if anyone has their Acer yet? How fast is the shipping? Does Amazon or Best Buy ship faster, or are they about even?

I still haven't tried drop box, but I have created a pretty organized list of folders on Google Docs. I think one reason I wasn't saving files there is because I didn't have it organized.

Will Chromebook ever support Silverlight?

I am wondering if Chromebook will ever support Silverlight? Since it doesn't I suppose that means you wouldn't be able to get things like Netflix to run on it.

I wouldn't go the route of burning it on a CD. I think there are too many things that could go wrong. I would go to a friend's house and use their wireless connection.
