This is a question for the people on the board who weren't involved in the drama and complaints about the contest. If you don't win, are you all set to buy? I have to wait another month or so before I will have the money :(.

good question. even though i am not involved in the drama, I am still pretty upset with the admin..
If i dont win, I indeed am going to buy one.. but I dont want to buy one if in case I win.. so I cant buy one until this stupid contest is over.

I'd wait to see what the landscape looks like in January of next year (I don't need one, but would like one). Prices should be low and a used market might be around already. I'm already seeing Samsung Series 5's on craigslist, but they're often for more than retail.

I'm interested in other manufacturers, too, but the Sammy Series 5 might be tough to beat.

Interesting take pete. I was thinking there would be some great Chromebook sales for Christmas, of course I could be wrong. Why would someone pay more for a Chromebook off Craislist? I hope no one falls for that. And yes, I will be buying if I don't win. I just haven't decided between Acer and Samsung yet.

I plan on waiting till next year to buy one before starting theology. It'll be a tough long wait but it's worth it. :)

I totally missed the drama, so that obviously doesn't apply to me. I won't be able to buy a Chromebook for at least a year, unless the price drops dramatically (which I don't foresee at all). But still, I have hope. :)

Yes, I'm going to buy the Samsung wifi around November but I also want the HP WebOS pad and there's no way I can convince my wife that I need two new toys. Of course the Samsung is cheaper so it will win.

Yes, at some point. I think I might wait until August or September tho' to see if other manufacturers jump in*. Assuming my ability to control my techno-lust lasts that long! :p Probably will pay the extra for the Sam 5 with 3G as I appreciate good build quality and the additional connectivity option.

*ideally I'd wait for an ARM version with super battery life, but who knows how long that will be if ever. :rolleyes:

I agree with Cloudyone. I want to wait until the ARM version comes out with a lower price and longer battery life... but to be honest I don't think I can wait...

How come

Can't get a Chromebook where I live. But I want the ASUS one with Kal'el chip.
How come you can't get a Chromebook where you live? I guess I assumed that they had opened sales up to world wide by now, but I guess I am wrong about that.

I won't be able to buy one for at least 6 more months, so my fingers are still crossed on wining.

I also missed the drama but if it had do with something not going right with the freebies there is reason to be mad at someone.

That would mean I will have to budget for a Chromebook really soon as I was looking to be the lucky winner of one.
