The question I have is whether or not we will see a 15.1" chromebook 4G in time for Christmas? This would truly be the ultimate computing machine and I would finally part ways with my aging Macbook 15".

I am hoping that Dell, Acer or Samsung will answer my prayers :)

This would be a huge selling point for me, especially during Christmas which may be the only time I could have the funds for one of these puppies.

This would cost more than 500$. Come on guys a laptop that only has the web for more than 500$?

Can someone explain what the difference between the 3G and 4G is. I already have trouble understand what 3G means and now were in to 4G. Help!

Data speeds are measured in megabits per second (mbps). Wifi is about 15 mbps. 3g is about 3-3.5 mbps. 4g is about 12-20 mbps. In short words: 4g is much faster than 3g

Oh, someone said that would make this well over $500. Would a jump in speed like that really end up raising the price of the Google Chromebook that much?

It is hard to say, if things go well with the first gen Google Chromebooks you can expect USB 3.0, 4G and some other things too. All in all it will make the 2nd generations a little more expensive.

Samsung and Acer will offer both WiFi and 3G models, right? So, since Sprint and Verizon and AT&T are all rushing to upgrade their networks to 4G, why did they not foresee the need to build a model (for a few bucks more) that's 4G-capable and unveil it with the other 2 models? Seems to me like a great way to stay ahead of the competition.

Interesting comparison: browser speed testing of the Chrome browser on straight Chrome O/S, Mac O/S, Linux O/S & Windows O/S. Does anyone agree?

Also should compare capabilities.

I would think a 4G version will become available quickly, after all the entire product is based on connectivity to the Internet.

Wi-Fi isn't a data connection in itself, but a means of connecting to one via wireless technology. The speed of your Wi-Fi connection is entirely dependent on the local network it is connected to, so speeds could range anywhere from 2 Mbps - 150 Mbps.
