It is a great feature of the device, definitely cool for people that don't think they'll use enough of the 3G to warrant a plan, but still want the possibility of 3G as a backup. It does add some price, but overall I think it'd be worth it.Still get 100MB's for free..and can get one day passes...I think the 3G is a selling point! No contract either.
Ordered June 1st from gilt.com (thanks to google for emailing me those details) came in on the 8th. Brought it to verizon that night to try getting it added onto my plan and they were clueless as to what it was and what to do with it. Even worse for them (hilarious for me though) was that i brought it in at one of their busiest times and all the customers were looking at me funny and the chromebook weirdly after i got all excited and my inner geek came majorly out.It will be great to see who actually has purchased (and received) their Chromebook.
Details of where you bought, ship-date, etc. would be cool!
