I'm sure there is someone that really needs to win the new notebook. As for me, my lap top is very old and hanging on a string. I am out of work and really can't afford to buy a new. I would reallly like to win one of the chromebook's!

I don't have any reason why I SHOULD win a Chromebook. I do have plenty of reasons for why I HOPE to win, would be HONORED to win, and completely THRILLED to win 1 of the 3 Samsung Series 5 Chromebooks. Just to name a few.......
1. HOPE....You know the old saying, “Give me a brake”? Well I am HOPING for just that....a brake given to me by the most amazing Google itself. Throughout my life, especially in the last 4 years, I’ve experienced and lived through many of life’s “hard-knocks”, but almost always stemming from my own stupid choices! Because most of my hard-knocks are actually “consequences” for choices that I’ve made, I haven’t been given too many brakes which is really the way it needed to be for growth, strength, knowledge, and independence. I have a little advice for anyone who wishes to take it....Indeed this on-line world of ours is full of opportunity’s such that our minds cannot conceive, it will also eat you up and spit you out if your not properly equipped! So no matter how smart you think you are, if you don't have the experience and/or education in creating a website/eCommerce store and all it entails, yet you desire one for your business anyway, don’t do it yet! Educate yourself first! Or, hire a professional to do it for you! Otherwise you can expect to be humbled in failure just as I was.
2. HONORED....I would be so HONORED to win a Chromebook from my Google! In having to lay aside my business to begin the journey to educate myself on the above, it took me about 5 minutes to discover that it was GOOGLE who would be here to lead me, guide me, and teach me everything my little heart desired to learn, all unlimited and all free for the taking. My businesses online success will be credited 100% to my Google. Although being fairly new here, I am without a doubt, Google's most loyal fan....just ask my family who thinks I've lost my mind :) So I can't imagine a greater HONOR than to be picked as one of my Google's "chosen ones".
3. THRILLED....I am close to ready to start putting to use all the information and knowledge learned so far and begin to create my e-Commerce site once again, though I do have one slight problem. In dropping my beloved Acer laptop last December, I sadly dropped it to its demise. Well, being a more than full-time student seeking a degree in online success at the school of Everything Google, I have not and still cannot afford to replace my own laptop with a Chromebook (the only laptop I would even consider) yet. And as it is, nothing would make my 21-year old daughter happier than when I hand back her own new laptop that I had to "confiscate" from her last December, as I say to her, "Thank you oh gracious and unselfish daughter of mine for the use of your new laptop...you can have it back now that your mama is a big girl and finally has a new laptop of her own!" Nothing would THRILL me (or my generous daughter) more than to begin this new phase and chapter in my life on a brand new Samsung Series 5 Chromebook! It would be such a fitting thing after all that has taken place over the last year!

1) I'm very passionate about what the success about the Chromebook means for personal computing.
2) I love tech gadgets, so if I won the Samsung I would end up buying the Acer anyway to test performance between the two.
3) Who doesn't like to win? ;)

I'd be great advertizing to my students

I should win because if not it will be a long time till I can afford this device. I have a lot of other devices and my "fun" budget is depleted. I would love to watch instant movies on this and surf the net.

I am a part time teacher, teaching online, and I love tech. I can also tell all my students about this wonderful device so the makers of chrome books will benefit if I win. It would be great if I could use the Chrome book to manage my online classes. My students could also take my class on the chrome book. I'd like to see how this would work.

First, of course, I would have one, use it, and see how it works for online classes. I can't do that unless I have one..and I can't buy one for a least a year or more now.

So even if I didn't win they should discount or give me one.

Well I think you all have excellent reasons for wanting to win a Chromebook. I can't think of anything to compare, it would just be nice to have one for free!

1.) I have plenty of classes and a chromebook could easily lessen the stress by making research and note-taking easier. I can also work on the go.

2.) I use a lot of google applications and that would be of great use to me.

3.) The Chrome web store has some nice apps, especially some great ones (according to my friend) for coding and development.

Another attempt to get a laptop for 2 non-profits that run conferences to use the laptop to organize and perform on-site registration. I have two laptops myself (one is battered Thinkpad tablet I dropped to many times)

Well, I never win anything, so if I am going to win something, this would have been worth the wait. Plus, I really, really need a new laptop and can not afford one. If I were able to buy, it would be a Chromebook, for sure.

1) I'm very excited to understand and learn how the cloud works.
2) I trust in Google to make the chromebook an excellent machine.
3) I'm a student and having such great battery life, light-weight, and fast would be truly amazing. No more, "Wait..let me wait for my computer to boot up" during class.

I want to be part of a group that first landed their hands on this powerful device and two, since my laptop got stolen immediately a week, I would be honored to win.

Going to grad school this fall for Architecture and I need a laptop. Planning on getting a desktop for all the 3D + graphic stuff, but still want a shiny new Chromebook to have for taking notes and site visits.

I should win so I can give it to my mom, whose 6-year-old Sony won't last much longer, and who, ever since Bernie Madoff made off with her retirement fund, would have a hard time putting together the money for a new one.

1) I already use almost all of Google's services, and am extremely excited about Chromebooks.
2) I'm a nursing student, and my laptop completely died on me. I need a new one, but I'm low on funds.
3) Because I'm the awesomeness.

I have a piece of tape holding down the cover of my old Toshiba Satellite laptop and I have a prop the screen up against something to stop it from falling over... Plus - I really love all things Google. Oh, and I abide by the "don't be evil" rule too...

I'm wa-a-ay behind the times. All I have is an old iMac (the kind that has a half sphere base). I want to catch up and even leap ahead.
