If anyone here got the Chromebook/Gilt "invite" and was interested in sharing to help out the site, please let me know :)

I received the Chromebook email from Gilt. Found this place searching online to make sure it wasn't a scam. 'Sharing?'

Haha, I did the same. I haven't had time to keep up with what was being announced today. I am interested in a Chromebook, but not for $429 when I already have a netbook.

Rob, the invitations/emails are still going out to some of those who participated in the 60,000-unit pilot program. Perhaps you'd like to clarify what you mean by sharing. The invitation? The Chromebook? Something else?

How do they go about choosing the people they want to send those to? Is it just random, or is there some type of application to fill out?

The emails are from Google's Chrome Team and appear focused on Google's Cr-48 pilot program participants. That's not explicitly spelled out in my email other than to describe us as "our biggest enthusiasts."

By "sharing" I mean giving us the access code, or allowing us to by the Chromebook from Gilt using your invite.... we would then purchase the Chromebook, get early delivery, and be able to share news/information/reviews, etc.

Let me know if you can help .

Problem. In the email it explicitly states: *Remember, you must use this email **** to access the sale

The link includes my email in the address as well. I think it is a targeted offer for some reason.

EDIT: And they are now OOS. Wow. Fast.

I signed up to participate in the Cr-48 pilot program but wasn't included. I did however get the Gilt invitation.

Pardon my speculation. I was guessing. My email came from the Google Chrome Team. I have no information about where other emails might have come from nor what the recipients have in common that got them included.
