I have the Samsung and it also has flat keys and lowercase letters on them. The keys do not have a click sound, but it does have the good tactile feedback of the infamous IBM keyboards. Since I am a hunt&peck typist, I guess the flat keys don't bother me as much as it might a touch typist.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 their clicky sound. The flat keys have no feel and are too easy to mistype. Also when looking for keys the lower case lettering is sometimes harder to identify than the more normal upper case.
I bought the C7 for $200 this past week. So far I love it! I understood the limitations of the OS when I bought it and was looking for a small light cheap laptop mostly for surfing and browsing while on the road.Too bad people bought the Acer C7 @ amazon for $300. I just paid $200 @ best buy!
tecknovice,I ordered my C7 online from Best Buy early January, and it arrived at my home in about a week. Probably the reason Frys employees don't like Chromebooks is that Frys doesn't carry Chromebooks.
