Just tried checking Amazon.com to see if you can pre-order it but so far can't find a link..... Looks like I'm going to have to wait a bit before I can put money down on this badboy.

Im loving the Spec of this puppy, but im not diggin the CPU, i never was a huge fan of the Intel Atom CPU's. Did the clock the speed on how fast the CPU is? or which Atom it is?

As for the VGA support good move , good move on that one portable laptops with an easy access VGA port is a must! now if only they used a DVI port for better quality...

Here are some more specs:

The Series 5 actually runs components that echo today’s netbooks: It has a 1.66GHz dual-core Intel Atom N570 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 16GB mSATA SSD (used for caching data locally).

All ports along the sides are tucked away beneath covers, except for a lone USB 2.0 port at the far right rear of the laptop. You get an SDHC card slot at front, another USB 2.0 port beneath a cover at the left, a video-out port, and a full-size SIM card slot (on the 3G-capable white and titanium models). The 3.5mm headphone jack doubles as a microphone input as well; and the Chromebook has a 1-megapixel Webcam for video chat.

Too bad the SD Card sticks out, I like the type that are spring loaded and allow the SDHC card to be nearly flush with the edge of the device.

Any idea why they are going with USB 2.0 instead of 3.0? By the time these get to market and are readily available, 3.0 will be the new standard. Why stress the "always up-to-date" with cloud computing, then put in an out-going technology with 2.0?

I am a big Samsung fan between my HD T.V's and my Nexus S, hard to think this wouldn't be the Chromebook I would end up with, even if it doesn't have HDMI.
