I just opened your link in an incognito window and it loaded immediately for me. Give it a try (Shift-Ctrl-N in chrome) and see if your load speed improves. If so, then maybe you have some browser...

USB GPS exist

You might try a real GPS that would connect via USB. (Google 'usb gps' for examples.) I have no experience with any so I don't how well they would work, if they would work on a chromebook at all. ...

I don't know that I would recommend a Chromebook as a cheap way to get on the web. Being early adapter means paying more for one than for a cheap laptop. Maybe in a year or two the price will come...

Wi-Fi Acer

I got an Acer from Amazon. I like it ok, my only gripes are the flat keys and the lower case letter markings on the keyboard. I'm old school and like the sculpted keys of old IBM keyboards with...

If you don't mind an older router that doesn't support the newer/faster N specs I can recommend the Linksys WRT54GL wireless router; it's $50 at amazon.

Purchased from Amazon.

Also I'm a 'Prime' member so I qualified for 2 day shipping but I spent a few $$s more to get 1 day shipping.

This is a new 'pc' in a house with 4 Macs and 2 WinXP systems and several HP200LXs. ...

Your mouse can be plugged into the USB port, I haven't tried a keyboard (yet). The Acer has a HDMI port that might be used but only if your monitor has one too. I wouldn't take the Dell down yet,...
