The ChromeBooks have been delayed, and probably caused the ChromeBook giveaway to be put off until they're released.

From the admin
Hey Guys..... we will be announcing the winners as soon as we receive the Chromebooks. They are on order from BestBuy and should arrive shortly!
quote is from this thread: http://www.chromebookforum.com/foru...mebook-giving-away-3-free-chromebooks-20.html

If i were you i wouldn't leave, since all of us have the chance of winning one! Don't miss your chance to get a free chromebook.

Its not exacly a scam dude.. i mean we all want to win, but we just have to look further in, its not the companies fault for not delivering the product when they dont have it i would blame google for not settling with their legal issue before the product release, if you dont believe me here is the FUll press release from ISYS sueing google!

this!!

it's not a scam at all, i know a scam when i see one. If it wasn't for google and its legal issues with the chromebook i bet the winners would be announced already. i have this forum bookmarked and open on my browser nearly 24/7 just waiting for a word on when the chromebooks will be released.

yeah dude relax!!!1 no need to get that hyped up the press release is right here

ISYS Technologies Sues Google and Its Partners, Claiming Violation of Its ChromiumPC Trademark; Restraining Order Sought to Stop Launch of Chromebook and Chromebox | Business Wire

It just states this
ISYS Technologies Sues Google and Its Partners, Claiming Violation of Its ChromiumPC Trademark; Restraining Order Sought to Stop Launch of Chromebook and Chromebox

After months of delaying tactics by Google and after ISYS’ first use of the ChromiumPC mark, ISYS and subsidiary, Xi3 Corporation, see their talks with Google reach “an impasse.” Noting that Google’s planned June 15, 2011, worldwide launch of the Chromebook PC products would cause ISYS “irreparable harm,” ISYS is pursuing an expedited legal review in federal court in Utah to prevent shipments of Chromebook and Chromebox computers.

ISYS Technologies, Inc. today filed a lawsuit against Google alleging that the search giant is violating and interfering with the trademark for its ChromiumPC™ Modular Computer.

we just need to keep our cool!

Seriously, there is a legal thing going on, possibly a gag order. You want to point fingers then point them at the company who sued Google just because they want to make some money. They did that at OUR expense so don't flip out yet.

How is the forum a scam? The forum works... there are lots of people discussing the Chromebook.

In terms of the contest... we have tried to order them, and they are on backorder.... Why are you so worried about the contest? Did you join this site just to win?

Anyways, calm down bud... an announcement will be made shortly.... we just want to make sure we actually have the prize before we start giving away vaporware!!!! lol

Gosh you guys....Be nice! I can understand and see why Dejean80 would be concerned, can't you? If a person hasn't the knowledge of what is going on....mainly the lawsuit....then the Contest posted in this forum in which 3 winners were to be announced on June 15th but as of yet haven't been announced, would seem a little "offish" to those unknowing people.

Dejean80, my advice would be to "investigate" or "educate" yourself in the reason for the delay BEFORE jumping to conclusions. There are threads and posts all over in this forum that explain what is going on. Afterwards, if you still feel the same way then scroll down to the bottom of the page and read the Privacy Policy which would be a starting place in which for you to remove yourself from this forum. But keep in mind what rdlviper said to you, "The forum works... there are lots of people discussing the Chromebook." I thoroughly enjoy and trust this forum myself.

Personally, in light of what's going on legally, I would rather wait for an announcement to be made about who the 3 lucky winners are, rather than having received the announcement on the 15th then having to wait to receive the prize (should I have been announced as a winner on June 15th).

Would that really surprise you?
Yes - I just joined to win ...
Anyway - maybe I overreacted - but I still would like to delete my account, since I cleared my FB-account anyway and I'm not interested in winning a chromebook anymore - I read a book about the industry behind all this and I serously dont think being identifyable and trackable via an os (like chrome os) on the web the whole time .. no I dont like it.
I apologize for the "scam" thing to you all ---- but where is the exit-button here in this forum?
